Cagematch: Librarians vs. Bloggers.

I'm not going to get all worked up about this—and as a librarian AND a blogger, I'm certainly not going to take sides—but apparently there was some pretty ugly behavior at the ALA's recent Midwinter conference.

That behavior—on the part of, I assume, just a few people—led to some blame-gaming back-and-forth between librarians and book bloggers on Twitter and on blogs, and it was all just generally unpleasant.

Because, really, I think most of us genuinely want the same thing: to read, and to encourage others to do the same.

So, stay classy, everyone.

Do unto others, and all that jazz.
