Read what you want: librarians don’t judge

As librarians, we will never judge you.  We would never judge you.  We sideeye those who do.

In response to THAT article, and in solidarity with the sentiments over here (at the New Republic) and over here (with NSFW language, a bit, at Jezebel).

I don’t give a shit what you read!  Erotica?  I’ll get it for you.  Obscure manga?  OCLC to the rescue.  That one book with the blue cover and the thingy?  I will go down a black research hole for you and then I will put a hold on it.

LIBRARIANS HAVE NO SHAME.  WE DON’T CARE.

The solo adventurer must face themselves, over, and over, and over again.

"If you want to know who you are, travel. You meet someone and they start asking all kinds of questions that even a therapist couldn’t conjure. And then you meet someone else. And then someone else. Who are you? What is your purpose? What are you doing? What do you want to do? They all want to know. And practicing repeating it over and over is like repeating a conversation in Spanish class every morning. You become fluent in you. Constantly explaining who you are is a good way of remembering when you have forgotten. "

everyone’s got that couple of fanfics that you just read over and over even though you practically know it by heart because it’s so perfect it’s like a favorite book and you just catch yourself clicking to a random chapter on it because it’s so good it’s comforting to reread it

True this.
