Today: libraries around the world, plus a few bonuses!

The British Library has decided to concentrate on resources from China and India. Since those two countries will probably be the next superpowers, that's a good strategic move.

In Italy, a designer has created the 'bibliochaise,' which can store dozens of books. Other parts of the site are just as cool, like the "pop" option for their bookshelves which are meant to display illustrated bookcovers properly.

Imagine a library constructed from discarded airline jet fuselages. It could happen in Guadalajara!

Meanwhile, back home in the land of the free, the National Archives is expressing shock and outrage over its recent re-classifying of declassified documents. Riight.

From another planet entirely, yet still in your own backyard: how much do I love the Secret Library Workers Union?

For the poetically minded: write a haiku about a cryptozoological or slightly obscure animal, and win a book! Even the Beastie Boys are participating.

Finally, a handy reference guide to those of us who have to drive places: GasBuddy shows you the cheapest and most expensive gas stations in town. Cincinnatians, stay away from Clifton; right now gas is $2.99 there!

Tomorrow: lots of cool links from others!
