Book Recommendation - The Facebook Diet

The Facebook Diet: 50 Funny Signs of Facebook Addiction and Ways to Unplug with a Tech-DetoxThe Facebook Diet: 50 Funny Signs of Facebook Addiction and Ways to Unplug with a Tech-Detox by Gemini Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Discription from Goodreads:
There are now 1 billion people on Facebook. That's 1 in every 7 people on the planet. And 34% of all users check their account before brushing their teeth or hair in the mornings! 
Everyone can confess to an addictive Facebook habit, whether it's stalking an ex, faking bathroom breaks to read news, checking-in wherever they go, or art-directing photo's for the perfect profile pic. 
The Facebook Diet (the first in The Unplug Series) takes a tongue-in-cheek look at this love for social media, featuring 50 hilarious cartoons that pinpoint the more idiotic, embarrassing and cringe-worthy behaviors of this modern approach to communication. 
It’s the ideal gift for Facebook junkies everywhere. Helping them find light-relief and the ability to laugh at this tech-takeover, which may inspire them to occasionally unplug with a tech-detox.

I recieved an ebook ARC from Netgalley.

I personally don't think I am that addicted to Facebook. Sure my addiction maybe a bit more than some, but I can go days without checking the website, or posting anything an update. Okay, so I'm a little bit addicted to seeing what others are doing and sharing thing's I've read or seen online. But it's not that bad, I'm not addicted like some people. I can quit at any time. Really, I'm good. This book isn't for me.

This book is funny and cute. It would make the perfect gift for that Facebook addicted friend or family member.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
