When was it that librarians turned into a class of people who hate to read? I have one co-worker librarian who doesn't read anything (except for the occasional magazine). She also says that if she did read, she wouldn't read fiction, because novels never say anything important, anyway. That statement is wrong on so many levels. I have another co-worker librarian who reads maybe one or two books a year. My boss reads mysteries only, our office manager reads mysteries only. Another co-worker librarian reads quite a bit, but just spent five minutes trying to convince me that nothing worth reading (in terms of fiction) has been published since the era of Anthony Trollope. Why the hell are these people librarians?
