librarian bypass

Book ExchangeSeveral pubs I’ve visited recently have bookshelves labeled ‘book exchange’.   Unlike a library, you do not get a wide range of choice, helpful advice, and an occassional dose of ‘shushing’.  This  can be a  bonus  for noisey, decisionally-challenged, me.

Until now I’d treated the bookshelves of friends and family as book exchanges,  now my net has widened to include pubs….   …some people are releasing their books into the wild then remotely tracking their progress via websites like bookcrossing.

    It seems an incredibly civilised way to read books. One wonders if libraries should start selling cheeky wee half pints.

    I did once seriously propose that one of our libraries, which has the shape, size, disposition and atmosphere of a friendly village pub, should have red flock wallpaper and horse brasses on the wall to complete the effect.
