Owl! at the Library 😴🧙♀️ @SketchesbyBozeRest assured you will never bore me by talking about your special interest. You’re an astronomer? I have questions. You draw maps of medieval London? I love you. This world is a banquet of knowledge and each of us has brought a dish to the table. Dig in.

#MSWL all day. I'd love to see an art book on comets, nonfic on historical comets, fiction around comets, graphic novels about comets...

I'm always in the mood for a ghost story! A fresh take on classic themes (I am a sucker for haunted houses) for adults, spunky kids in spooky houses for MG, nonfiction how-tos: how to build a haunted house, Halloween how-tos, crafty Halloween. #MSWL QueryManager.com/Stacey3Seas

Philip Parker @parkerpj01@HistoriumU @FolkloreThurs Virtually unique to British Isles, #Bee Boles are recesses in walls were straw baskets containing #honeybees were kept (before bee hives invented). Mostly from C17 and C18, thousands remain. pic.twitter.com/g9Zdd7WTmI
#MSWL I'm always looking for nonfiction on bees. History of bees. Beekeeping. Beekeeper fashion. Honey recipes. Art featuring bees. You get the picture. ;)
