I came across this cartoon on the web. How can you tell it wasn’t drawn by a librarian?
Because all the librarians I have ever met hold books this way –
so they can use their free hand to shelve the top book as they go along. Even if you are carrying a load of books to the one place you tend to use the same method as they are less likely to fall. At least, I always did (do).
Anyone have a different way of holding them?
