Many thanks to Julie, who sent in this story about a cat who visits a library in Kent every day. Every now and then I try to agitate for a law library cat, but no one ever listens to me!

The big reference questions right now are all about swine flu. ResourceShelf has put together a big compilation of useful links. Also, the CDC has its own Twitter feed for this sort of thing!

I admit that I am a sucker for a cute robot, but Addictomatic is a neat newsfeed site even without the accompanying droid. Check out the top news category, for instance.

Cracked brings you the most traumatizing (real) books for kids that have been published. Bunny can vouch for a few of these, as he sees a lot of "what is death?" books for kids in his library.

If you're feeling protective of older books, why not adopt one at the British Library?

I've seen some of these bookshelves in posts all over the web, but Oddee has them all on one page. I'd like the Autumn bookshelf, I think.

The Pulitzers are out, but they're not a guarantee to fame -- look at some of the fiction winners from the past.

The librarians at the Columbus Dispatch have a fun new weblog that looks back at the history of the area and the paper.

And finally, if you're stuck in the house for a rainy weekend (or quarantine, or whatever), why not check out SnagFilms? Free documentaries! What's not to love? (Psst, Cassandra: don't look at this site until finals are over.)

Tomorrow: links from others. Stay tuned.
