Boredom, Interrupted


We all experience boredom. The most deadly boredom is "Mom, I'm Bored" boredom. This causes parental insanity and may result in injury or death to the bored child.

We tend to think of boredom as a never-ending pall of grey stretching on for eternity. Apparently, this is not so. A quick scan of my library's catalog has revealed that there are all different kinds of boredom. Some types of boredom are: Work Boredom, Cubicle Boredom, Career Boredom (see also: burn-out), Spiritual Boredom (see also: Hell), Boring Tasks, Boring Meetings, Bored Pets, and, apparently African Wood Bores.

A nice thing about being a librarian is that most types of boredom can be cured by making a bibliography of items that discuss, probe, entertain, explain, or cure anything. So, I give you my latest booklist:
