Happy Birthday To Us

Today is Unshelved's twelfth birthday. How time does fly! It seems like only yesterday that Gene was telling me disturbing stories from his first few days as a librarian. Now librarians from around the world tell us disturbing stories every day! Here are some fun round numbers:

  • Almost 4000 comic strips
  • Over 2000 books reviewed
  • Over 100 talks at conferences, staff days, and other events
  • Over 25,000 copies of our 10 books
  • Unknown thousands of our t-shirts and other merchandise

Thanks for everything you've done to make the above numbers possible!
