Have you been following the adventures of our AWESOME blue box? It is currently parked at the Longmont Public Library in Longmont, Colorado where patrons are encouraged to leave behind their book recommendations so that a certain Time Lord can find them. Even a traveler in time and space occasionally needs help figuring out what to read next.
