it was amazing
bookshelves: books-about-books, libraries
Read in April, 2009

For anyone who loves books and reading this book will probably be delightful. I'm pretty sure that except for the intricacies of cataloging books (and how to be king of the file clerks in a company, something I'm going to forget I ever had the misfortune to learn as soon as the class is over, so we'll ignore that) everything I've learned in my 3 semesters of Library School is in this book, and generally presented in a much more enjoyable manner than any of the things I've been required to read so far. Unfortunately at the end of the book isn't an MLS, and this book cost me twenty bucks as opposed to whatever school is going to end up costing, but oh well. All of the great stuff about books and libraries without all of the bullshit or the inane questions and concerns of ones peers.
