The trends and memes that the internet throws up can be truly bewildering… mind-boggling… unfathomable. “Shaming” is one of those trends that started a few years ago – post a cute photo of your pet, making it quite clear that he or she had committed some heinous crime. Who could resist? But Librarian Shaming?! Go figure. Go to Tumblr! It’s awash with tales of the egregious sins of the people we trust to take care of our public literature; hilarious, weird, odd and some tragic. Still, spend your life among books and you could be forgiven for losing your mind, and self-control occasionally. Here. Have a look…
and judge ye not,lest ye be judged yerself…
Do you have any unreturned library books? Forgetting to return them is bad enough, but if you end up then working as a librarian, what do you do?
If that copy of that novel you’re looking for is missing from the shelf next time you visit the library, you might want to check the librarian’s desk.
Oh my! How could you? I’m not sure I could resist reading it either but to read the epilogue first!
Oh dear, I think I just died a little.
I think this is just tragic and I think this person needs a new job.
And finally, the one that invariably starts fierce discussions!
I hope you enjoyed those, add your own reading confessions in the comments.
