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:
Louisa May Alcart
Orson Scott Cart
Wheels DeGrasse Tyson
Carth Books (and his wife Trisha Cartwood)
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.
(Roz Warren is the author of Our Bodies, Our Shelves: Library Humor and Just Another Day At Your Local Public Library, both of which make terrific gifts for librarians and other bookish people.)
