While a lot of the quotes did not impress and came from less than well known sources, there is still a good collection of useful quotes for librarians to enjoy.
I work in a Library and all of us at this library thought it was great. Thanks for the prompt service
I was not sure what to expect with this one, but I found it pretty interesting. Most of the quotes are from librarians, about libraries, or from historic libraries. It is definitely not the traditional quote book, but it is perfect for library enthusiasts. Not a whole lot of quotes in this one, which is the only downside, but it hits the target market of librarians perfectly. If you are looking for a traditional quote book, you might want to look elsewhere, but I believe this one will be very interesting to you if you enjoy reading quotes that you are not likely to find in other quote books.

This book was way to small for the expensive price! Thought it would make a great gift for my friend who became a librarian, but definately not worth the price paid!
