The Library Book
3 journalers for this copy...
A history of the Los Angeles Public Library system, also looking at the arson case at the main library. I thought this book had some truly excellent characters featured, including the female library director who was fired because the board wanted a man to do the job but who refused to hand in her keys and just kept showing up to work!
Received in a Christmas parcel from Discoverylover.
Journal Entry 3
Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Saturday, April 18, 2020
I read this bit by bit over the past week while lockdown continues. I enjoyed parts of this book, but I thought the author needed to decide if she was writing about the fire and the possible arsonist or the history of the library. I found the parts about the past librarians the most engaging parts. There were some real eccentrics amongst them. I loved the guy who walked from Ohio to California to take up his post. I'm sure this is one that will appeal to other Bookcrossers so will save for a future meet-up. Hope that is not too many months from now! Thanks for sending me this one Discoverylover.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Welcome to Bookcrossing!
You have found a travelling book. Why not join in the fun? Read, release and pass on but don't forget to write a Journal Entry telling us where you found the book, if you read it what you thought about it and where you are going to leave it. If you join bookcrossing before you do the entry you will get an alert when the next person writes up about it and can track its travels. If you prefer to just leave an Anonymous Journal Entry, it will brighten up my day either way. Oh and if you like the book sooooo much you just don't want to let it go that is fine too, maybe one day eh ☺
