I am a very eclectic reader: professional books about librarianship; trashy murder mysteries; historical fiction; quirky biographies; dog books (of course); books set in Ireland; memoirs of people who have moved into a farmhouse in Tuscany and could not get the local stone mason to fix her crumbling retaining wall (okay, maybe that last one is a narrow genre but…)
As a librarian, I also read nerdy books about libraries, or books about books! Just finished: Check These Out: One Librarian’s Catalog of the 200 Coolest, Best, and Most Important Books You’ll Ever Read, by Gina Sheridan. She is a librarian in St. Louis, Missouri. The best part of her book is her table of contents, which sorts books into categories, including: My Family Is Weirder than Your Family; Southern Discomfort: Spooky Reads Set in the American South; Reel Good Books: Books into Movies that Won’t Make You Gag; and my favorite: Meta-Textuals: Books about Books, Libraries, Book Shops, and Book Nerds. Yes, preaching to the choir!
