I don’t know about all of you, but as a book lover and a lover of mysteries, it actually kind of tickles me when someone takes notice of books and makes fun of them. I mean, of course we make fun of books. We are, after all, librarians. Since books are kind of our stock in trade we obviously have jokes about them. Radio people have radio jokes. Doctors make fun of various things relevant to the medical world.
So when I see a book joke, out of context, totally out of the literary setting – I smile and laugh a little louder than most because hey, I’ve found this stuff to be funny for years!
