A Library Miscellany

It's an absolute delight to welcome Claire Cock-Starkey to the salon today as she undertakes the promo rounds with her new book, A Library Miscellany.

As with all of Claire's marvellous books, this one is another treasure trove and absolutely beautiful to look at too! It may be small but it's packed with wonderful bits of trivia and fascinating stories about libraries across the world, from the earliest to today. What book lover doesn’t love a library? A whole place full of books that you can borrow as much as you like. I love libraries so it was a real pleasure to read Claire Cock-Starkey’s book full of facts and information all about libraries.

If you love books (who doesn't?) and the wonders of libraries, this is a must read!

You can follow Claire on Twitter and if you're anywhere near Oxford at noon on 20th March, she's speaking at the Oxford Literary Festival. Find out more here!

Without further ado, let's delve into the world of circulating libraries...
