“Our Bodies, Our Shelves: A Collection of Library Humor” by Roz Warren – Book Review


Roz Warren’s Our Bodies, Our Shelves: A Collection of Literary Humor is really funny. Really, really funny. I got it today as a birthday present and read it in one sitting, laughing out loud the whole time. If I were the type to steal a book from a library, this would be the one. But that would be wrong. Indeed, Ms. Warren may use Paul’s Flying Squirrel Squadron to track down book thieves, page rippers, cell-phone shouters, and fine dodgers anytime she wants.

Any librarian, any son or daughter of a librarian, any one who’s dated a librarian will appreciate the joys and struggles of your library’s workers and heroes. And gosh, who knew they could be so funny? While in high school, St. Mary’s, a school for librarians, sent me a brochure encouraging me to go there. I chose to go to another school and major in economics. After reading the wonderful Our Bodies, Our Shelves, I wonder if I made the right choice.

Well written, Roz.

See her book on Amazon.
