 If you work in a library, you work with book carts, so naturally you give them nicknames. You could call your faithful book cart Bumpy, Squeaky, Rusty or Tipsy.  But surely you can do better than that! Here’s a list of actual nicknames librarians have bestowed upon their favorite book carts:  

 Boris Cartoff   

Andrew Cartnegie 

Louisa May Alcart 

Orson Scott Cart 

Magna Carta 

Herman Shelfville 

Carty McCartface 

Paul McCartney 

Cartin Sheen 

Kim Kartdashian 

Wheels DeGrasse Tyson 

Cart Blanche 

Schlep 

Cartship Enterprise 

Carth Books (and his wife Trisha Cartwood) 

Bookaditch Cartabatch 

Groucho Cart 

Descartes 

Cart Vader 

Lord Voldecart 

Cartasaurus Rex  

If you happen to be a librarian and these names inspire you to re-name the book cart in your life, please share the results in the comments section.
