Small Pleasures in Libraries

14 Sep

It’s the small pleasures in life like finding a book called “Modern marriage and family living” published in 1957 on the shelf of the library where I work that make me laugh. Chapters include how to select a suitable “mate” based on social class, religion, and race as well as info on what to expect from the wedding night including the sexual organs of both sexes. Wow, I’m so glad that this was never weeding out of the collection just so that I could find it and laugh!

    It could be even more interesting to compare it with a similar topic book say dated 1857 and….2057. Sth definitely would seem very familiar, some – peculiar, and sth – very fresh or even..innovative?
