You know, you run across some interesting people when you work in the library...
Yesterday I was sorting books in the Jr. Mezzanine, when suddenly a little girl, probably about ten years old, comes up.
Her: "Hey, what are these?"
Me: "Uh, books that haven't been shelved yet. Did you want to look at them?"
Her: "Okay." Three seconds later, "I don't think anyone will want these books."
Me: *eyebrows raising* "What?"
Her: "Nobody will want these?"
Me: "...Why not?" as I glance over the books I've shelved over and over and over. Trust me, people are reading these.
Her: "They just look stupid." She points out one from a series I shelve nearly every time I volunteer. "Like this? This just looks stupid."
Me: "... Okay." Go and find the kinds of books you actually want to read, then, and let me finish my perusal of my eventual competition in peace.
Fare thee well, friend! And don't judge books by their cover!
