Need some humour to put a smile on your dial after a hard day’s work? Need to be reminded that you aren’t the only one who sometimes is confronted with the oddest requests for information? Need to remember to laugh once in a while?
You could read the first volume of James Turner’s series, Rex Libris : I, Librarian, and put your name on the waitlist for the second volume, Rex Libris : Book of Monsters.
And you could always sink your teeth into the many fiction books starring librarians, such as Ian Sansom’s series about Israel Armstrong, who is described as a “young duffle-coat wearing librarian who solves crimes, mysteries, and domestic problems” – does this sound like any librarian you know? Perhaps you want something a bit more intrepid, then what about The camel bookmobile by Masha Hamilton?
Got any other favourite librarian-related reads you want to recommend?
