Book Beginnings: The World's Strongest Librarian

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The World's Strongest Librarian: A Memoir of Tourette's, Faith, Strength, and the Power of Family by Josh Hanagarne

 "Today the library was hot, humid, and smelly. It was like working inside a giant pair of glass underpants without any leg holes to escape through."

I did two lines instead of one today because that second line is so visceral. Ick.

Some memoirs are captivating and well-written; others, not so much. This one sounds like it has a lot of interesting elements (librarian, Tourette's). I hope it's enjoyable.
My Friday post features What I Remember Most.

Yuck. What a disgusting picture this evokes in my mind. Ha!
