lockers don’t just hold books, they are books

Ps_Book_lockers_01_mm_150818_16x9_992Two 8th grade teachers at a Mississippi school spearheaded an initiative to paint lockers to look like enormous book spines. I can’t believe this actually happened! I’m not sure I believe the statement in the article about the project increasing the “cool factor” of books, but I absolutely believe that the teachers “spent hours ‘arguing and fighting and crying’ over which book titles would go on the hallway’s 189 lockers.” I’m impressed that they put series books in order, next to each other — it’s like the lockers are organized library shelves. And now, apparently, students are compiling lists of how many of the locker books they’ve read. Awesome.

Thanks, Joan Petit, for letting me know about this.

fun with encyclopedias, part 3

boobdickSome clever high school student has discovered that the spines of the World Book encyclopedia can be rearranged to spell out “Boob Dick.” (As you may recall, “Dork Bowl” is also a possibility.) Thanks, Steve Lawson!
