Rude1By Lovely RitaI don't know, reads like someone working at a library and just doesn't like it...get another job and hopefully you are replaced with someone less rude.
Fine for Free4By NewCNNfanThis isn't the funniest book out there, but for a free book, it's worth the download. Simple, short stores that will make you smile, occasionally broken up by less humorous tales.
Very Funny5By Pikejackson72I downloaded the book because of the price tag (free!) and could not put it down. I enjoyed it very much, and it was better than the ones I've paid for so far.
not funny1By dr_punditingtonI started reading this because it turned up when I did a search on "humor.". I read the first 16 pages and never found anything even remotely close to humorous.
Love5By PAPAGOOSEI loved reading these dispatches. They were a great comedic look at the true thoughts and actions of a public librarian. Very nice writing!
Entertaining4By Boo BowenBookish types are sure to get a kick out of this modern librarian's take on the library and the world outside its sacred doors.
