Romantic Librarians

Auburn dropped me a line (thanks!) about another book featuring librarians that I'd missed in my talk: Josephine Carr's The Dewey Decimal System of Love. The reviews I've read make it sound like one of those perky-yet-depressing (IMHO) "she was celibate for years but then found her true love and nothing would keep them apart" kind of books, but Booklist said "much of the pleasure in this wonderfully amusing novel comes from Carr's realistic depiction of the everyday pleasures and occasional downsides to working in a library." I may have to look for it at my own library and give it a read - it is summer, after all!
