Welcome to my new blog, The Bourgeois Librarian. Actually, it's a bit of false advertising since I am actually not yet technically a "librarian;" I am merely a library student -- horror!
So, why the name "Bourgeois Librarian?" Well, being neither "conservative" (other than I like to conserve things) nor "liberal" (other than being liberated from blue-collar labor) -- I'm a monarchist -- I found that the first step in any librarian's blog is to determine which side of the fence you fall on. I considered calling my blog "Feudal Librarian," but that just didn't have quite the same tea-with-crumpets ring to it as "bourgeois." Yes, I'm exactly what Marx despised, and why aren't I landed aristocracy? We leave that mystery for another day.
Let's just say that when I'm Queen of the Library, Manga is gone, along with a horde of other literary screed; old books will be treasured and patrons will be sushed. Yes, perhaps I'm a biblio-tyrant, but what can I say, better to be bourgeois than bland.
Stay tuned and follow the career of an outspoken, extroverted, and fabulous . . . Bourgeois Librarian!

This is such a great start to your blog! Your mater showed it to me. If you really are a monarchist I would love to hear more about it some time.

I commiserate with you in not be landed aristocracy. It is my calling! Sigh.
