LLB's 2011 Awards for Creative Alternative Uses for No Longer Needed Print Books
And the winners are:
Damn it all to hell, I wish I had been creative enough to use some of the 113,000 pounds of legal p-Books I sent to the recycling center during my first major Shed West pBooks in the summer of 2010 to construct a new public services desk and to cover our little county law library's walls that haven't received a fresh coat of paint in over 10 years!
Do remember Bender Bound is looking for free law books for its product line. So if you have any left and are locating in the NYC vicinity, give this start-up company a call. Sure as hell beats tossing them in a dumpster, even if you think you have a chance to be a winner of one of ATL's photo caption contests, Image of a recent ATL award winning photo, above right.. See And the Winner in ATL's Shed West Print Era in Academic Law Libraries Photo Caption Contest Is for the award winning caption.
Heads-Up TR Legal. Bender Bound, by the way, will be featured on NBC's TODAY show with Kathie Lee and Hoda on January 2. If TR Legal wants to go green with all their law pBooks and updates returned to Eagan, they can "do the right thing" by sending them to Bender Bound. Remember, "shipping is free." [JH]
One of the court security officers in the federal courts in Oklahoma City confided that he had recently bought a book. This was a comment coming from a decided non-reader. His use for the book? With a hollowed out interior in which to place a pistol. The CSO believed he had no more secure spot in which to secret a firearm.
