My New Nickname: Bibliobimbo

My lovely friend Harley May shared this photo with me (via The Mysterious Bookshop, which is a lovely bookstore to visit for cool noir & pulp novels and the like): 





I  suppose I could/should write a rant about how this is sexist and anti-feminist and plays upon tired librarian stereotypes but honestly, I'm too tired from last night's Book Riot Start Here (a lovely book you should buy) party last night at WORD Brooklyn (another lovely bookstore you should visit) to offer anything of value, so just interpret this piece of art any way you'd like. 

Love, 

Bibliobimbo

  1. I can't say that's a stereotypical librarian, but I can ask what the male equivalent of "bibliobimbo" might be. Let me know so I can amend my business cards.

    I have some rare books in my library.
