A Room With a View?

We librarians have to work hard in the call of duty you know. Selflessly, we travel the world in search of the very best printed materials with which to stock our libraries, and bring knowledge and pleasure to the masses.

Sometimes our world collides with less pleasant worlds as in my recent book buying trip to a city which shall remain nameless, and a hotel which shall remain nameless, in an area the luminescence of which could be descibed as "rose tinted" at night.

How we librarians marvelled at our neighbour - "Jonny Diamond's Pink Flamingo", its business too, being about the bringing of pleasure to the masses....
