This was a random find while volunteering at the library. The cover, the short description pulled me in, and I’m glad it did. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The author time hops between the past and current time as the story progresses. I enjoyed learning a great deal about the history of libraries, specifically this particular library in Los Angeles, along with a bit of history regarding librarians. A non-fiction book at its best!
The Orchid Thief – A True Story of Beauty and Obsession by Susan Orlean
After reading Orlean’s book titled, The Library Book, I just knew I wanted to read this one. Fascinating history of the state of Florida, educating me on entire topics I had no idea about. The passionate world of orchid collectors, and those that will do anything, pay any price to have the orchids they feel are beautiful and unique. Looking forward to watching the movie, Adaption. It’s on my list!
