Apparently I’m Bookish…

As I was perusing my bloglines feeds today, seeing if there were any new bloggy stories for me to read, I noticed a link that said “related feeds”. As in, I could click on one of the blogs I read regularly and then click on the “related feeds” to see other blogs/feeds that might interest me based on that blog.

And of course, once I realized that, I had to just see what kind of feeds were related to say…oh…mandy’s blog, or Steph’s blog, or…hey…I wonder what’s related to my blog feed?

Apparently, my blog is highly related to…libraries? Really? Hmm. Okey dokey. I’m not opposed to the mass of library/librarian feeds. It just wasn’t what I was expecting.

Here’s the bulk of the “related feeds” for my blog:
