What are some books you recommend to help calm Back to School Jitters? My oldest starts Kindergarten in a few weeks. Anywho, you’ll be very proud to know that I checked out my very first library book for pleasure reading (not research books or books for school) last month and even read it in bed! I’m going to be honest here, I never thought about the germs until I became a librarian!
I LOVE the library and I generally always take out library books but I totally get what you mean! The Harry Potter series are the best books that I have ever read and I’m going to be blogging about some of my favourite things about the books over the summer.
The first game that Harry plays as a seeker is against Slytherin and as Ron and Hermione watch the game, they realise that the game has been enchanted and someone is trying to hurt Harry. Harry doesn’t know about the game being cursed but he is the best player in the game and he winds up catching the snitch (in his mouth!). A A LARGE rose-tree stood near the entrance of the garden: the roses growing on it were white, but there were three gardeners at it, busily painting them red.
The Queen turned crimson with fury, and, after glaring at her for a moment like a wild beast, screamed "Off with her head!
The soldiers were silent, and looked at Alice, as the question was evidently meant for her. Alice thought she might as well go back and see how the game was going on, as she heard the Queen's voice in the distance, screaming with passion.
The hedgehog was engaged in a fight with another hedgehog, which seemed to Alice an excellent opportunity for croqueting one of them with the other: the only difficulty was, that her flamingo was gone across to the other side of the garden, where Alice could see it trying in a helpless sort of way to fly up into one of the trees.
The moment Alice appeared, she was appealed to by all three to settle the question, and they repeated their arguments to her, though, as they all spoke at once, she found it very hard indeed to make out exactly what they said.
The executioner's argument was, that you couldn't cut off a head unless there was a body to cut it off from: that he had never had to do such a thing before, and he wasn't going to begin at his time of life. The King's argument was, that anything that had a head could be beheaded, and that you weren't to talk nonsense. The Queen's argument was, that if something wasn't done about it in less than no time, she'd have everybody executed all round. The Cat's head began fading away the moment he was gone, and by the time he had come back with the Duchess, it had entirely disappeared; so the King and the executioner ran wildly up and down looking for it, while the rest of the party went back to the game. OU can't think how glad I am to see you again, you dear old thing!" said the Duchess, as she tucked her arm affectionately into Alice's, and they walked off together.
Alice was very glad to find her in such a pleasant temper, and thought to herself that perhaps it was only the pepper that had made her so savage when they met in the kitchen.
She had quite forgotten the Duchess by this time, and was a little startled when she heard her voice close to her ear. The other guests had taken advantage of the Queen's absence, and were resting in the shade: however, the moment they saw her, they hurried back to the game, the Queen merely remarking that a moment's delay would cost them their lives. They had not gone far before they saw the Mock Turtle in the distance, sitting sad and lonely on a little ledge of rock, and, as they came nearer, Alice could hear him sighing as if his heart would break. So they went up to the Mock Turtle, who looked at them with large eyes full of tears, but said nothing. This was quite a new idea to Alice, and she thought over it a little before she made her next remark. So Alice began telling them her adventures from the time when she first saw the White Rabbit.
Alice said nothing; she had sat down with her face in her hands, wondering if anything would ever happen in a natural way again. The judge, by the way, was the King; and as he wore his crown over the wig, he did not look at all comfortable, and it was certainly not becoming.
The Hatter looked at the March Hare, who had followed him into the court, arm-in-arm with the Dormouse. This did not seem to encourage the witness at all: he kept shifting from one foot to the other, looking uneasily at the Queen, and in his confusion he bit a large piece out of his teacup instead of the bread-and-butter. Here one of the guinea-pigs cheered, and was immediately suppressed by the officers of the court. For some minutes the whole court was in confusion, getting the Dormouse turned out, and, by the time they had settled down again, the cook had disappeared. ERE!" cried Alice, quite forgetting in the flurry of the moment how large she had grown in the last few minutes, and she jumped up in such a hurry that she tipped over the jury-box with the edge of her skirt, upsetting all the jurymen on to the heads of the crowd below, and there they lay sprawling about, reminding her very much of a globe of gold-fish she had accidentally upset the week before. Alice looked at the jury-box, and saw that, in her haste, she had put the Lizard in head downwards, and the poor little thing was waving its tail about in a melancholy way, being quite unable to move. As soon as the jury had a little recovered from the shock of being upset, and their slates and pencils had been found and handed back to them, they set to work very diligently to write out a history of the accident, all except the Lizard, who seemed too much overcome to do anything but sit with its mouth open, gazing up into the roof of the court.
There was a general clapping of hands at this: it was the first really clever thing the King had said that day. At this the whole pack rose up into the air, and came flying down upon her: she gave a little scream, half of fright and half of anger, and tried to beat them off, and found herself lying on the bank, with her head in the lap of her sister, who was gently brushing away some dead leaves that had fluttered down from the trees upon her face.
First, she dreamed of little Alice herself, and once again the tiny hands were clasped upon her knee, and the bright eager eyes were looking up into hersa€”she could hear the very tones of her voice, and see that queer little toss of her head to keep back the wandering hair that would always get into her eyesa€”and still as she listened, or seemed to listen, the whole place around her became alive with the strange creatures of her little sister's dream. So she sat on with closed eyes, and half believed herself in Wonderland, though she knew she had but to open them again, and all would change to dull realitya€”the grass would be only rustling in the wind, and the pool rippling to the waving of the reedsa€”the rattling teacups would change to the tinkling sheep-bells, and the Queen's shrill cries to the voice of the shepherd boya€”and the sneeze of the baby, the shriek of the Gryphon, and all the other queer noises, would change (she knew) to the confused clamour of the busy farm-yarda€”while the lowing of the cattle in the distance would take the place of the Mock Turtle's heavy sobs. As you read this manual you will also learn the ergonomic principles for avoiding neck, shoulder and back pain as you read and type. Proofread, edit papers, transcribe your notes, and enter data from forms without turning your head. If the book is large, the edges of the book covers will extend near to the far edges of the lectern, or beyond. Notes: Three-ring notebooks and spiral-bound books will stay open on their own and do not need any clamping. Proper clamp operation - two key principles: First, you never use your thumb and index finger to squeeze a clamp.

Have you ever worried about their cleanliness, or is that just something you’re not concerned with? But I guess it doesn’t really affect me so much since I mostly use the online library for lack of transportation.
I stress myself out because there are so many books I want to read, but feel like there isn’t enough time to read them all. Now, I see the condition the books are returned in, and how some are slimy, some have toilet paper in them (ew ew ew), some even have blood on them (we get rid of those, obviously). Like I was reading a library book the other day and there was dry snot on some pages which is so sickening and it made me not want to touch the pages at all, but that was quite a rare occasion.
I started the Philosophers Stone a few weeks before the end of school in June and I just finished The Deathly Hallows this week. This post is dedicated to Quidditch and the first book in the Harry Potter series, The Philosophers Stone. All of his team have been there longer than he has, and his team mates are Wood, Katie, Angelina, Fred, George and Alicia. So Harry has to play a very tough game while Hermione thinks that Professor Snape has cursed the game and sets his cloak on fire. Quidditch is one of my favourite things about the Harry Potter books and Harry Potter becomes a better player every year.
Alice thought this a very curious thing, and she went nearer to watch them, and just as she came up to them she heard one of them say "Look out now, Five! The three soldiers wandered about for a minute or two, looking for them, and then quietly marched off after the others. Alice looked up, and there stood the Queen in front of them, with her arms folded, frowning like a thunderstorm. Alice did not quite like the look of the creature, but on the whole she thought it would be quite as safe to stay with it as to go after that savage Queen: so she waited. She was a little nervous about it just at first, the two creatures got so close to her, one on each side, and opened their eyes and mouths so very wide, but she gained courage as she went on. This, of course, Alice could not stand, and she went round the court and got behind him, and very soon found an opportunity of taking it away. She carried the pepper-box in her hand, and Alice guessed who it was, even before she got into the court, by the way the people near the door began sneezing all at once. Use with optional Floor Stand as bookstand, alone with chair or sofa (no desk), or exercising with exercise bicycle or recumbent bicycle, or straddle wide recliner or treadmill with custom-width unit.
The two mahogany base legs, each 11a€? long, are stabilized at the back with two stainless steel rods, secured in the middle.
Slide the brass tube to the center of the lectern to re-lock the connection of the rods and provide extra stabilization. It is easiest to break the stabilizer connection before adding or removing or adjusting the height of the lectern.
To change the height of the lectern, just add or remove the same number of spacer tubes on each side.
If you want to use the optional Book Stand legs to change your lectern into a Book Stand (optional), simply add these legs to the sides of the lectern, instead of the mahogany base tubes.
When you want to compact E-Tool for travel with your attache, you will want to swing the side arms up completely against the lectern. In addition, it will also easily store completely assembled, against the foot of a bookcase, or the end of a sofa, even straddling the base of a lamp at the same time. If there is a book already on the unit and you want to read a different book, loosen each clamp by turning the black knob behind it clockwise.
When you sit in a chair for a long period of time, it is important that blood circulation to your legs continues. Ideally, when you type, your forearms and the back of your hands should be all on one flat line. Make sure your lumbar area is supported by a small pillow or bend in the back of your chair. Just the bottom section of the screen is all you need because you will add notes to the bottom of the window.
On the table in front of your laptop, with your extended keyboard and mouse in front of the E-Tool. In front of a flat screen or monitor with your extended keyboard and mouse in front of the E-Tool. Straddling your lap (using the short legs): as you sit on a bed, couch or sofa, or sit on the floor.
Standing on the floor at eye level (using the optional Book Stand extensions) as you sit back, with the extended legs on either side of your legs, in your: armchair, swivel chair, wheel chair, straight back chair or sofa. I know that there are even cases of bed bugs in library books in some areas which is crazy!
People have spilled food on them and stained the book, but for the most part I get the sanctification that when I return the book another person gets the chance to read it. So you see, Miss, we're doing our best, afore she comes, toa€”a€”" At this moment, Five, who had been anxiously looking across the garden, called out "The Queen! Next came the guests, mostly Kings and Queens, and among them Alice recognised the White Rabbit: it was talking in a hurried, nervous manner, smiling at everything that was said, and went by without noticing her.
The Cat seemed to think that there was enough of it now in sight, and no more of it appeared. Then againa€”'before she had this fita€”' you never had fits, my dear, I think?" he said to the Queen.
Sit back in a swivel chair, armchair, desk chair, wheelchair or sofa and read your book at just the right height and distance and with hands free.
When the side arms of the lectern are folded in, a laptop case can easily rest on the top of the lectern. The clamps slide in and out in two slots, one on each side of the lectern, and then lock into place. Then press one clamp at a time to loosen that side of the book; and slide the clamp off the book.


The proper approach is to squeeze the clamp in the palm of your hand with two or three fingers grabbing the other side of the clamp.
In this approach you start to turn the right page with your right hand just as you would normally. To this end, you should sit so that your thighs are parallel to the floor when your lower legs are perpendicular to the floor. Hunching forward is almost guaranteed to cause neck and back pain and reduce your focus, concentration and the amount of time you can read.
Your laptop can be in your lap, or you can use an extended keyboard if necessary, placed in a comfortable position, like on a lower keyboard tray or on a pillow in your lap. The centers of your keyboard, screen and workspace (for books or papers) should all line up on the same centerline.
One side of the book does not bend back more then the other, when you begin or end the book.
Each time I go into the library and rummage through books, I leave feeling this strong urge to wash my hands.
I remember in my high school PE class I had to wear gloves during volleyball because my hands were so dry and cracked that I did not want to bleed on the ball. If I do manage to get ahold of a newer copy, I never read it in bed and touch as little of it as possible. I always go for the cleanest, newest looking copy if I have an option, but I still just cringe.
I guess I figure I’m must more likely to get sick from doorknobs and other everyday items everyone uses.
Usually books I check out are clean-looking as well, but I had a children’s lit class a couple semesters ago and was reading a lot of kids books, and those were pretty yucky sometimes. Then followed the Knave of Hearts, carrying the King's crown on a crimson velvet cushion; and last of all this grand procession, came THE KING AND QUEEN OF HEARTS.
This gives you four height settings (no spacers, the short spacer, the long spacer or both spacers). In normal operation as you proceed through the book, squeeze the right clamp with your right hand as you use your left index finger to loosen and grab the top of the right page to turn. Ideally, you should rest your elbows on side rests or side arms, adjusted so that the weight of the arms is off the shoulders.
With an extended keyboard, your laptop can be on a table and at some distance from the extended keyboard. Turning your head repeatedly is a sure way to hurt yourself and loose concentration and accuracy, especially when editing, transcribing or entering data or taking notes from reading. I have always hated the idea of taking a library book to bed with me because of all the germs! I’m much better now (it happens when you decide holding hands with and kissing boys is just too much fun) and do not wash my hands all the time or irrationally freak out when someone is sick. I KNOW that there are germs but it doesn’t stop me from taking my books to bed and whatnot.
The back of your chair can now properly support your neck and shoulders as you read for hours.
Most regular hard cover books and all small and medium size paperbacks will fit on the lectern. Move your left hand down the right edge of the right page and then slide the page out of the clamp. When you have almost finished reading the page, you swing your left hand under the lip of the lectern over to the right clamp and grab it, with your thumb pointing right. You can always add a little foot platform, if you need to have your seat higher than otherwise permissible. If you need to raise your hands and forearms substantially, tilt the back of the keyboard up to compensate, so that the flat line discussed above is maintained.
I’m just sensible and wash my hands at the normal times as dictated by social convention. I hate deadlines, and even though my library has a drive-through drop-off, it’s still a chore to drop them off. Honestly when I start reading, I just totally forget about what I should and should not do. Even if that study is not true, I’m still going to be even MORE careful at the library.
Taking a few minutes now to learn how to use E-Tool properly will reward you many times over. You can quickly place the keyboard or laptop on this side table or main table if you need to get up. Temporarily changing the print set up to horizontal allows you to type many more characters on a line. What if you’re reading a library book while you’re sick, sneeze or cough on it, return it, I check it out, I scratch my eyelid while reading, and BAM!!!
Now slip the base-tube from each mahogany foot over each lectern side arm, one side at a time. Slide the clamp along the slit in the plastic lectern until the clamps get to the edges of the open pages.
Then swing the page over to the left, as you move your left hand back to the left clamp and grab it. This is why E-Tool has the book raised up, so as to match your new, relaxed line of vision, now that you are sitting with proper neck and back support. In this case, ignorance is bliss for me because I do NOT want to know what goes on those books but I feel like I should acknowledge that there may very well be totally unsanitary things that have happened to that book and I should be more wary of where I take it to. Now tighten down each clamp by turning the associated black knob under the plexiglass lectern counter-clockwise to tighten.
