Administrative - Statistics and More

This morning AWOL enrolled its six thousandth subscriber by email.  I'm gratified that such a large number of you find AWOL interesting enough to voluntarily add another piece of email to your busy queues each day.

AWOL passed the one million page views threshold a little less than a year ago, and as of today has had 1,668,233 page views. 

You may follow AWOL directly via News Feed (user count not easy to discover), via Feedburner (these are the 6,003 email subscribers), on the newly independent Facebook presence (151 likes),  or on Twitter @ISAWLibrary (726 followers).  You can also follow AWOL on Google+.

I  also invite you to amuse yourself by browsing through Bookplates of Scholars in Ancient Studies. If any of you have additions, corrections or comments on that, please do get in touch with me.  I'm particularly interested if you can surface other interesting bookplates of scholars of antiquity. I have a few more to add to the collection, once my office gets properly unpacked.

As always, comments - online or offline - about AWOL are welcome.
