What do you write when you’ve already written your introductory post? Some took comfort in food: Hoi takes on cabbage, KateJF wine and rice, Teresa Bennett blueberries and porridge, Lissy lemon and honey — and Kris Wehipeihana is ready for the good kai of Matariki.

Ruth Baxter continues #blogjune with some ways blogging can lead to research. Ellen Forsyth reports on a library seminar held in World of Warcraft and Kelly Hall finds inspiration at day 1 of the LGMA Women in Local Government Conference.
Michelle McLean reflects on the future of libraries as making connections; meanwhile Lutie the Librarian wonders how to keep her identity as a reference librarian when students only want staplers.
Joy Weese Moll reads lots of book reviews. Speaking of which:
- Dark Country by Bronwyn Parry, reviewed by Ballarat Library Chick
- MacRobertsonland by Jill Robertson, reviewed on Hecuba Reads
- Eagle of the Nineth by Rosemary Sutliffe, reviewed by Tiffany
- Debbie Storz muses a short retrospective on Harry Potter
- The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell, reviewed by Karina
- A selection of books, ebooks and dvds from La Trobe University Library
- JayGee lists all the books she’s read so far in 2011
- Vassiliki reminisces on “the book that launched a thousand trips” and on visiting Mycenae.
Nor is Vassiliki the only traveler! While SallySetsForth is at home in sunny Darwin, motorikpulse spent a weekend at a farm outside Moree, Leonie at the Gold Coast, the Family Librarian visits Temptation Creek, and stitchsarah is in New York.
