Read full description of the books In the Stacks: Short Stories about Libraries and Librarians:
I am a library dork. I eat, sleep & work library, so of course, I had to read this book of short stories about libraries and librarians. So many good stories but my favorite was "Exchange" by Ray Bradbury. It gave me such a sweet sadness; it is a beautiful story. After I read that story I had to just close the book & let the feelings wash over me. It's a rare author that can make you feel precisely what he wants you to. Ohhhh....Ray Bradbury has become one of my favorite authors.
Many other wonderful authors included in this are Ursula K. LeGuin; Francine Prose; Alice Munro; Saki & many others I didn't know. This book is varied in authors, who vary in nationality & era. Another good thing is that each story is different genre. Some are mysteries, some are political commentary, some are romantic, some are romanesque. "QL 696.C9" by Anthony Boucher is a memorable little murder mystery.
