Legal Sourcery hit another milestone today – 30,000 hits! Our readership is steadily increasing as it took us 6 months to reach 20,000 but only a month and a half to add another 10,000. We anticipate reaching over 40,000 hits by the end of the year and hope to surpass 50,000 by our one year anniversary in March. Please keep visiting our blog. We promise to continue to deliver our popular tips on legal research and grammar, and a few posts just to make you smile.

Saskatchewan Library Week is a yearly event to promote libraries and their impact in Saskatchewan. This event has been around since 1975 and is celebrated in libraries across the province.
This year Saskatchewan Library Week has put out a contest for Book Spine Poetry.

Creativity ran wild, and after filling a truckload with books to be reshelved, we came up with a few excellent pieces.
Take a look at some of our results below and vote for which one we should submit. Do you like Hunger, Horses, and Government Men (a Western-movie-like scene from a battle on the open plains toward civilization restored – but then ends in a bloodbath); or The Lawyer’s Winning Edge (which begins with an affirmation, but then the curtain is pulled back and harsh reality asserts itself); or perhaps Life Expectancy in Court (a scary picture of the court system); or plain and simple Prairie Liberalism (dark with stark irony)? Take your pick. Read the rest of this entry »
