The first job I had after leaving school was in this University's library. While I was there I read a lot of books, suddenly finding stuff that I had only dreamt of getting my hands on before.
One of these books was about the Thirty Years War (mainly in Germany from 1618 to 1648). It was a great book, and considering that my interest has returned to this era it would be fun to read it again.
The library is about to move to a new building, so everything is being crated up for the move. As I was passing through I though that this would be my last chance to grab a book for a couple of months. I typed "thirty years war" into the catalogue and up popped the book that I had read all those years ago.
I went to the shelf and there it was! Curious to know how many others had read this book since I read it, I flipped it open, and there was the date stamp from the time I took it out! It was still there!
Eight others have read the book since.
And do you know the finniest thing? I last read "The Thirty Years War" 30 years ago...
You have just entered The Twilight Zone...
Wow, and I just noticed that I also have 30 followers!
Do dee doo doo, do dee doo doo...

There is nothing like working to a deadline, is there? I have a Portfolio that is due on on Monday. Just finished it (at around 4.59pm). YAY ME!
