    There’s been some buzz about this one on the book blogosphere recently!

    Have you heard about The Library by Night? If you liked This Book Is Overdue, you’ll almost for sure like that one as well.

      I haven’t heard of it, no! But now that I have, I’ll keep an eye out for it.

    I really enjoyed this one too. I read it when it first came out. I’m a librarian, and I was inspired by all of the cool things we do (and often outside of work). It’s funny: people are rarely surprised when they hear I have a book blog because I’m a librarian, but I’m an academic librarian. I teach undergraduates and assist with research; I rarely deal with novels at work. For me, my blog is my labor of love:-)

      Very interesting! I’m an English teacher, so nobody’s really that surprised – except that I usually review books that most of my students definitely do not have the literacy skills to read.

    This sounds fantastic – I definitely hope to read it at some point.

    I had to laugh when you said, “Have you ever met a truly unhelpful librarian? (I don’t mean that mean old frump at the reception desk of my university library, or the high school student page who was really only there to shelve books. Neither of them were really “librarians”, though some people might have thought so.)”

    It seems like there’s a new generation of librarians coming in, and I’ll be interested to see how they change things, probably for the better!
