I Work at a Public Library: A Collection of Crazy Stories from the Stacks - Gina Sheridan


"Patrons will often let us know when they really like, or hate, a book. One day, a woman expressed both emotions when returning two books. 


WOMAN: [Slams first book onto the counter.] This book is born of the devil. It was absolutely repulsive and I don’t think it would benefit anyone to read it. [Lovingly places the second book in my hands.] Now this one. This one, well, I insist that you read it. Insist! Do you think you could read it by next week? I’d like to discuss it with you. I bet you’ll just love it. You’d better love it! "



I don't get it. Doesn't everyone do this when returning their books to the library? #thiswasprobablyme #prettysureofit
