Check out this post by Maggie, the Ultimate Southern Librarian, about the importance of librarians reading. It seems completely bizarre that it needs to be said, but apparently it's becoming common for librarians to not enjoy books! I know of one librarian in our system who admits to not liking reading much, and we were quite shocked when she said it. But Maggie's story in the post and those of people commenting are dreadful. The access to books is my main job perk, for heaven's sake! And one of the main reasons I wanted to be a librarian. I blame library schools - they seem to be taking the library out and putting "information professional" in and it makes public librarianship seem second class. Just my opinion, of course, but I definitely noticed it when I was in library school 8 years ago and I bet it's worse now.
So, read on, librarians and other booklovers, read on!
