Review for I Work at a Public Library: A Collection of Crazy Stories from the Stacks

This was fabulous!

I bought this about a month ago (at Amazon but at their marketplace), and it finally came in 3 days ago! I just wish that the shop it came from hadn’t put a sticker on the cover, as the cover is paper and thus if I try to remove the sticker the cover rips. 😐

Back to the book and how fun it was. Really it was, I laughed so much, and even shared quite a few of the things in here with my boyfriend, who also laughed, but (just like me) shook his head and wondered what was happening in the world that people did those things, or didn’t know the simplest things (like asking if the library also has books, or thinking dragons were real creatures).

I loved how the book was separated in Dewey decimals/categories for the chapters. It definitely fitted perfectly with the book, and I really glad they went for that instead of just boring old chapters. 😛 I definitely loved how the chapter names were stuff that you could indeed find on those decimals.

Plus I liked the introductions that each chapter had. It gave a bit of a background on what was going to happen in this chapter, and I liked reading them.

Some of the stuff mentioned in this one did seem quite not true, but I am guessing it is all true, and people are really that weird or stupid (like the guy with fingernail fungus and him just typing on the keyboard without a care).

The Carol chapter was the one that worried me most, I thought I might not like it, but in the end it turned out to be one of my favourite chapters in the book. Carol is quite the character.

Also plus points to the cover.

What more? Well, I do hope that this author will continue to collect stories/conversations like this, and that she will make more books about it. The world needs more books like this one.

I would highly recommend this book to everyone!
