S reveals my terrible taste!

Lo-fi librarian tagged me as part of Information Overlords meme, and has therefore forced me to reveal my terrible taste in music. I admit it, I'm a pop princess, and have a disturbing love of 1990s pop at that. Fiendish lo-fi, fiendish! If I'm ostracised from society for this list, I shall blame you!!

So, the challenge was to name my top 5 favourite bands beginning with the letter 'S', so here goes...


This one is because my Mum used to delight in singing along to this any time she had me and any of my friends trapped anywhere, like in the car. I could claim that she was trying to encourage healthy discussions in that area, but realistically, she just enjoyed embarrassing lots of pre-teen girls.

I worked for a summer in America in a theme park, first as a landscape gardener, then as a ride operator when the bulk of the staff went back to school after the summer break. This song was the last one played every night, and was a sign for us it was time to shut up shop, and head off home. Happy days!


So many of her songs that I love, but this one is just...fun! Also another from my American summer.


Is best heard at full volume in a club, so you can sing along badly and nobody will hear :D


Makes me want to find a field to run through, trees to climb with a treehouse in them, and a swing to play on...


I would tag 5 other bloggers, but my brain is in meltdown, so I'll just say that if anyone wants to do this, consider yourself tagged! :D

Library words

Putting words about libraries and books onto posters is very popular, so there's all sorts of options out there. These items are here because they have a quote or slogan about libraries or books printed on them. There's one quote in particular that seems to be a favourite of poster makers: see if you can spot which one it is.... Library bird (ok, it's a magnet, but hey...)

Mini Christmas gifts

Miniature things are one of my favourites, and miniature books are no exception. These tiny books are available either as volumes or sets of volumes on their own, or as parts of dolls house or in specialised miniature library settings. And some of the miniature libraries are just insanely good! I've not included here the many options of wearable miniature books - earrings, necklaces, bracelets, badges... A book with its own drawer for safekeeping Mini clay books Decorative mini books Ghosts in the library books Not exactly miniature, but very small "Little Leather Library" collection How about a Medieval illuminated book, in miniature? Or one with a secret compartment? There are even illustrated erotic mini books! You can theme by colour! Dollshouse insta-library (including 50 Shades of Grey, and the Hunger Games trilogies) Miniature haunted library Miniature Victorian library Still one of my favourites: themed mini
