    2. I'm a librarian--how can I not love this book? I didn't know about Mary Lemist Titcomb and her work to get books out into rural areas by putting together the first bookmobile. The archival photos and postcards and other materials help tell the brief story and the book design is quite lovely. The readership may be limited beyond librarians, but young avid readers and book lovers may be pulled in to the book by the photos.
