Reading Frenzy Book Sale

A blurb from a London-area book-based charity event, written with typical British humour: “We also need offers from people who may want to be librarians for a day – organising the donations into rough categories and novels into order. If it has always been your dream to wear thick-rimmed glasses and put your hair in a bun or wear a cardigan and sensible shoes then this could be for you. Librarian fancy dress code will be encouraged for volunteers but by no means compulsory. At the end of the sale you will, of course, be invited to shake down your hair and remove your glasses to a chorus of “ – but miss, you are beautiful”. Male librarians will be offered the chance to flex their muscles and make the buttons fly from their brown shirt or M&S cardy.”
