Quip–a witty remark.  E-Quips (think e-book or email) is hopefully a witty blog  – dedicated to word play such as parodies, puns, and word parallels and stories about libraries that you may not have heard before. It has also expanded to include a few book reviews, nature and observational essays and poems,  stories about military and veterans, and tips about writers and writing. It has evolved into an online journal.  I also include select re-blogs to admire or inspire.



Hope you enjoy the ride and the fun.

Please let me know if there is word that deserves a riff or a library that has a story to share.

Thanks for joining me in the blogosphere.

  1. Great articles! I really liked your piece on the history and current state of the library on the Midway. It looks like a great place to visit, and a wonderful resource for research.

    Future thought: How about comparing “martial law” with “marital law”?

  2. Buongiorno
    Ti ringrazio per essere passato a visitare il mio blog e grazie pure per l apprezzamento.
    Ti seguirei con piacere ma ho visto che tu non segui il mio blog e ho tolto la mia iscrizione al tuo.
    Cerco di dare priorità a chi mi segue e seguirli è un metodo per non perderci di vista.
    Sai quando siamo in tanti,mi sembra giusto .
    Il blog è un vero impegno,richiede tempo.
    Grazie e buona giornata
    Se hai piacere a seguirmi ,io seguirò te.

  3. I feel like I’m coming home. I grew up with a one-room library tucked behind the fire department, but at my grandmother’s I spent hours at a grand library (still small) with Georgian columns and a complete set of Frank L Baum’s Oz books.
    Best ever cover – the prince with a hole in his middle. Or, maybe Tik-Tok!
