The World's Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne - Love at First Book

The World’s Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne

Thanks to Monika at A Lovely Bookshelf on the Wall, I was able to get a copy of The World’s Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne.

Where has this book been all my life?  I loved loved loved it!  I am disappointed in myself that it sat on my bookshelf for this long.

This is the true story of Josh Hanagarne.  Josh has a lot to deal with.  He’s super duper tall and thin, with red hair and Tourette’s.  He also is Mormon, but has some rifts in his faith at times.  Josh’s Tourette’s is extensive, and ends up controlling his life.

He tries to control his tics by weightlifting.  But the tics interfere with a lot: his love life (or lack thereof), his schooling, and his jobs.

Can Josh pull it together to become the weightlifting, Mormon librarian with controlled Tourette’s?  Or is he destined to struggle with his disease and his patrons at the library?

This book is must read!  It was funny, charming, and open, which all began with Josh’s willingness to describe his struggles through faith and Tourette’s.

Have you checked this book out yet???

  14. This book has been on my to-read for a while now. I even had it out from the library once but just didn’t get to it. I’m a library science graduate, so pretty much any book that comes out about libraries and librarians gets my paws on it. ;)
