Librarians and Time Travel

Ramona dropped me an email (thanks!) to tell me about another book featuring a librarian: The Time Traveler's Wife, by Audrey Niffeneggar. (Unbelievably, I couldn't find this book at LibraryThing thanks for the correction, Tim!) Anyway, this tells the story of Henry De Tamble, "a rather dashing librarian at the famous Newberry Library in Chicago", who finds himself unstuck in time. It's a love story, since Henry meets his soul mate on one of his journeys, and the tale tells of their times together at various spots along their disconnected timelines. (Apparently there's a movie in pre-production, as well, with Eric Bana tapped to play Henry.) I'll be checking this out from my local library!

Apparently I'm awfully search challenged - thanks, Tim! (Post amended to remove my error....)
