I picked this up because it was on the list of books for my first class of graduate school...well, the other class, I'll read the books for my class when I take it. I thought it would be an interesting relatively easy take on the history of libraries and I was right. It was pretty entertaining, though I did think Battles lingered too much on the retelling of other people's stories or on the destroying of libraries. I guess, I think that's what he set out to do. I think I was maybe looking for a little more theory...though then I wouldn't have gotten my nice easy read. ;)
