選讀的因素/讀者,你在哪? (What makes you pick a book to read?/Where are patrons?)

老貓學出版 - 「好書會自動販賣」時代之消逝
http://b-oo-k.net/blog/blog.php/2007/288

近年的確少了打書釘,眼睛又比較容易受特色的書脊或封面吸引,非新書更是甚少拿上手試閱,以致少了憑自己的眼光發掘好書。而依賴書評選書卻是有增無減,在網上書店試閱內文更是頻繁,若非有人特別推介,根本不會去閱讀小型出版社的書,即使是好書也不會知道。

In recent year, reading in book store is less than ever. Eyes are easily tempted by cover or spine with special features. It is seldom to read old books. Hence, finding good books by own vision is very less. However, I have been relying on book reviews more and more. It is very frequent that I read the brief content of the book on online book store. Unless recommending by someone, books published by small publisher will never be touched. Even it is a good book, I would not know that.

是自己懶惰了;是過往的劣編書令我猶豫了;是好書太多,時間太少了,希望網絡開放的寫作空間能吸引愛書人撰寫書介/評,分享好書,再次令「好書說話」,而非成為滄海遺珠。

I have been lazy; badly edited books have made me hesitate; there are too many good books, but too less time. I hope that the open writing environment on the internet can attract book lovers to write book introduction and recommendation, share books and "speak for good books", so as to make good books cherished by people.

老頑童們的筆記 - 等沒人!讀者啊,你在哪裡?

氣氛冷淡的圖書館導覽活動... 是圖書館的網頁做得太好?外藉生的自學能力十分優異?以前已掌握一定圖書館使用知識和技巧?

Cold atmosphere at library guide tutorial... Is library website made so perfect? Foreign students have excellent self-learning ability? Have already owned the knowledge and skills in using library?

一定要檢討是次的活動,找出問題所在,推出切合讀者真正需要的活動,否則籌備有多充分,誠意有多大,人才有多好也是沒用的。

Review the activity, find the problem, hold activity meet patrons' real demand, otherwise it is useless no matter how good the preparation is, how hearty the sincerity is, how talented, knowledgeable and skillful the responsible people and speakers are.
