Recently received / Desperate Cars / Desperate for time

Posted in Uncategorized by LBM on March 4, 2011

On our Facebook and Tumblr pages, we give a nod to new books sent to us. I stole this idea from the great poetry blogger, Ron Sillman. I love receiving these books, but also feel a little guilty. I don’t have time to write to these generous contributors and give proper feedback. But I do look at everything that comes in. (If you look at my recent top 10+ list, a number of these books are unsolicited gifts).

One of the books on the list was Sebastien Girard’s Desperate Cars. This is an excellent book that deserves attention. Thank God for 5b4. Jeff Ladd just wrote an excellent review of this book.

Here at LBM we’re all a bit desperate for time (note the baby above). In two weeks we have two new books coming out. And down the hall Big Al’s is taking life.

All of this is to say that I truly appreciate the books that are sent and regret that I cannot give them more attention. But in the years to come I’m hoping to figure out a way to make our library accessible to more people. Perhaps an LBM Bookmobile?

    I heard there’s a lady named larissa leclair who is trying to figure out how to circulate indie photo books. Talk to her about getting the library on the road.
