Yesterday I thought I was doing the right thing when I pointed out to the librarian of the university where I work that one of the library books has been defaced.
Someone went through the text with different coloured highlighter pens and scribbled in biro on the margins of the pages, and of course I was most appalled.
But not as appalled as said librarian who then replies with “Oh you are being far too precious about books”.
When I asked her to explain her statement she said, “That’s what people do to library books so people should stop being so sensitive about it”.
This, bloggie friends, from a fully qualified went to library school, custodian of all things literary, LIBRARIAN.
Will the madness never end!?
Charlie says: I like my hat.
Beautiful Sammy, Andy, Shelly and mum who gave Charlie his hat are having a most fabulous auction and commentathons to help them through a horrible financial crisis. We send them lots of hugs and purrs and are bidding for the bookmark!
