The E-Sylum: Volume 12, Number 5, February 1, 2009, Article 17

DO E-SYLUM READERS DESERVE A MEDAL?

Yes, you could take that headline two ways, and that's what I like about it. You people are gluttons for punishment. Actually, my wife thinks she deserves a medal for time I spend compiling this newsletter every week. But when I'm not in my office compiling it, she complains that I stink. So someday I'll give her two medals. I'll buy them with the money I save buying burritos for lunch instead of say, salmon salad.

Anyway, our discussion of Society of Bearded Numismatists medals led to my call for thoughts on a whimsical name for E-Sylum readers. -Editor

If you are going to make an E-Sylum badge, it should surely contain a nut.


Now there's an idea - a book nut medal for book nuts. -Editor


Pete Smith writes:
I applaud your proposal to form a club for readers of the E-Sylum. My suggestion - Let's call it the Numismatic Bibliomania Society. If this catches on there might even be interest in publishing a club journal and everything.


Yeah, yeah, I know - it's been done. But not every E-Sylum subscriber is an NBS member (shame on you people!). We're kind of like an Auxiliary, but without the bake sales. -Editor
