What We Did On Our Summer Vacation

Rex LibrisSince most people don't spend much time thinking about librarians, it is only natural that they assume we become librarians because we like to read books. Actually, most of us become librarians to wield the Secret Flame or Arnor and to fight the evil, and eternal, machinations of the Illuminati. That doesn't mean we haven't been known to crack a spine from time to time (of a book that is, not a half monster/half human evil-doer sucked into our universe through a void in the time-space continuum). We here in the library thought we would share with you some of the tomes we pondered, weak and weary, as we stayed up late at night this summer reading, in the August rain, so dreary.
