"And to this purpose"

"If people like to read their books, it is all very well, but to be at so much trouble in filling great volumes, which, as I used to think, nobody would willingly ever look into, to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls, always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person's courage that could sit down on purpose to do it." (In other words: rambling analyses, opinions, ideas, views, and comments from an English major, Essay/paper-writing enthusiastic, Austen-loving Master Librarian on, well, Jane Austen...and a whole lot of other things, too.)

Heidi's favorite quotes

"What is it really like to be engaged?" asked Anne curiously. "Well, that all depends on who you're engaged to," answered Diana, with that maddening air of superior wisdom always assumed by those who are engaged over those who are not."— L.M. Montgomery

Beehive Comic Ad

I heard from some fellow librarians about another online comic maker. I decided to try a Book Ad with it instead of attempting to be funny.

'Cause failed attempts at funny are really pathetic.

Wide Awake Princess

My Opinion of ToonDoo: Not bad. It has a lot more choices in background and "props" than BitStrips. But--at least from as much as I played with it--the characters were not as versatile. I created the 3 characters (known as Traitrs) and had to choose their stance. No ability to change it throughout the strip. Whereas I was able to change the character more on BitStrips. Of course, it is possible that non-Traitr characters are  more adaptable. But aside from adjusting size and angle, I have my doubts. Still--they're both fun!
