Books for Gamers

I would rather clean grout with a toothbrush than play a video game. At least at the end of an hour, something would have been accomplished! 

The first video game I ever saw was Pong, and I was way too old to be interested! Last night, Kim at Otterbein had me attend her class virtually to talk to her education students about working with the school librarian. The students seemed very interested in video games, so I put this list of books on that topic.

Did learn that "XD" is a typed emoji for a squinty eyed smile. Younger member of staff had to teach me this. On the other hand, I can use a typewriter, rotary phone AND a phonograph, and I doubt most college students can!
