In the spirit of the magic book recommender, let me just briefly recommend five books to be read together if you’re feeling stuck in your career or mid-lifey or just wanting to vibe on the disconnect of today’s society and find yourself wondering “how did I get here, and why do I stay?”
For as far back as I can remember, I have strongly believed that libraries are just about the coolest places around. I love the books, the ambience, the possibilities. But I have come to realize that one of the most unsung yet greatest parts about libraries is their librarians. Intelligent, helpful, bookish, they are great sources of information. I have received many excellent book recommendations over the years from thoughtful librarians, especially Dunce One, aka The World’s Strongest Librarian.
