Welcome to Loranne (lorannen) and Matt (matthewmason), joining LibraryThing as "social media and member support" (i.e., Jeremy's old job).

Here are the blog posts:

Loranne: http://www.librarything.com/blogs/librarything/2013/10/welcome-loranne/
Matt: http://www.librarything.com/blogs/librarything/2013/10/welcome-matt/
Thank-yous to applicants: http://www.librarything.com/blogs/librarything/2013/10/700-thank-yous/

Go ahead and congratulate them, welcome them, and grill them about their plans.

I always thought Jeremy did the work of two people!

Welcome to both of you.

Oh, and in case any of those 700 are still job-hunting, the world's best academic bookstore is looking for a new manager. (Loranne will know instantly the store to which I refer! Yes, Jack Cella is retiring after 40+ years.)

Do they have to divide his salary? (Oh, and welcome!)

>2 lilithcat: Agreed!

Welcome Loranne and Matt!!

BTW, is Loranne pronounced Lor-anne . . . or is it an odd spelling of Lorrainne . . . or something else?

Thanks, everyone! It's great to be here!

>6 LucindaLibri: You're right! It sounds like "lor-ann." It's a weird one, I know.

Welcome to both of you, Loranne and Matt! You have some big shoes to fill, but Tim wouldn't have hired you if you weren't capable of filling them.

Welcome Loranne and Matt! Loranne, you can make my day if you can sweettalk the publishers of the two books I am missing from my early reviewer wins. I really want to read them and put the reviews in.
