Search and Research #125

Well, well, well...look at this. A new strip! Whoa! As many of you faithful readers are aware, my life becomes extremely busy around the start of a new semester, and August and part of September are usually too busy for me to find time to draw strips, and this year was no exception. My July was also unusually busy, so has been a while. So, I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome you all back to Search and Research!

I had mentioned in previous posts that my younger brother Christopher would be doing a guest strip for me, but it turned out that drawing a strip was a bit daunting for him, so I'm still trying to talk him into finishing it, but I'm not sure when that might happen.

Does anybody else get a lot of books coming in with these little sticky tabs in them? I seem to find them on a fairly regular basis, and I'm always surprised that someone would consider that an acceptable condition in which to return a book to a library. I just don't understand that...

Thanks very much to all of you for sticking with this strip! Enjoy!

People leave all sorts of things inside/stuck to books, but we don't often get books that have as many tabs as Marc has to deal with in this strip. What annoys me more than those stupid sticky tabs being left behind are the people who dog-ear the pages! This is particularly rampant in cook books that get returned. You can always tell what the patrons tried to cook, because the page is folded over and often covered in ingredients.

Great strip! Our students begs us to leave the strips in because of the additional information they contain:-)
