    Closed Off Circle: A Film Blog, Volume 1: Introduction

    My first idea when I decided I wanted to do this blog was to just delve in and begin discussing movies/directors right away.

Courtney’s favorite author is probably David Foster Wallace, but as an amateur internet enthusiast she reads most…

    John Beemer “Why would you want to be a librarian? Sitting around reading all day—that sounds like the most boring job. Aren’t libraries dying, anyway? And don’t you want a career that pays better?” I’m sure most library workers have heard these questions dozens of times. I know I have.
