Hmm... report? I seem to have missed a couple here, or mislaid them!
"Nooooo, not the Bod!"
It's been my distinct displeasure this week - and in fact will be for every week this term - to spend all my waking hours in the Bodleian Library. As all Oxford students will know, the Bodleian library is about the most depressing library in the whole world. It's big, it's scary, and it's really easy to fall asleep in.
It's also a librarian's paradise and a reader's hell. For a start, the Bodleian contains nearly every book ever written, squirrelled away in shelves far underground (overground, wombling free! - Ahem), which only the librarians can get to. To get a book, a reader has to fill in a request slip. The librarian will then wait as long as is humanly possible before bringing you your books (anything between 5 minutes to 2 hours, dependent on when you get there). You may also not withdraw books. Which means you have to sit there, reading your book, without recourse to tea or coffee (what the hell were the bastards thinking!) and worse yet without a locatable bathroom (!!!) for hours on end. Only Oxford could invent a library like this, which opens only from 9am - 7pm, meaning that to get your work done it is nearly unavoidable that you miss classes.
So there've I've been this week, sitting in the Bod, reading my 1,000 page long arabic book - and have now discovered the wedge shaped book-pillows on the desks. These are meant for manuscripts, so that they don't get harmed or whatever by having their spines too far open; hence you rest them on the "book-pillow". The book-pillow, however, is also really comfortable, and just the right size, to make a great head pillow - as I have discovered to my cost this week. snoooooooooooooooooooooze
