Old and vintage books – like librarian porn!

While at library school I realised that librarians are actually very different. We’re not all bespectacled and constantly peering out over the top of our glasses, nor do we really know 22 secret shushing techniques (the real figure is more like seven).

We do, however, seem to have one thing that unites us, and in the world of libraries binds us – our love for books.

I’ve never spoken to a librarian who hasn’t devoured whole literary genre-sections in their local library, before discovering that there was such a thing as ordering books home from other libraries…and from there on we were lost in our own little worlds of books.

We simply love books, which is why pictures of books – especially old books – is very close to literary porn for librarians. Pictures like the ones found here:
