Format: Paperback
This book came recommended based on other books I had purchased and rated. As someone in the same profession, I thought this would be something new and cutting edge compared to how most people view librarians. I was sorely disappointed. While the somewhat risqué content did not shock me, it did strike a nerve with how badly it was written. There was really no build up, no background, no character development, and the main character is completely self-absorbed and just not likeable. I will keep looking for something fresh and exciting about librarians.

Format: Paperback
This book is so much more than a single story. It is a meta-fiction about a certain form of popular literature with some very interesting, and very distinguishing differences... It is written by a contemporary artist, and from what I've come to understand, the novel itself was just another chapter in what is otherwise a rather epic adventure in sculpture, rejection, modern romance, library deaccession, information science, among other themes.

On top of all that the read is good! The book is very entertaining, and a real thrill, as it takes the reader beyond the romance or "chick lit" genre.

One of my favorite parts: the rejection letters that are from the publishing houses who declined to publish Sexy Librarian. They are included! Oh the romance, the heartbreak, its brilliant.

A work of great intelligence, and yet, Sexy Librarian is endlessly entertaining. Deep readers will understand the satirical element, the inferred genre study, and the criticality with which Weist relishes in the most ridiculously constructs of the romance-novel formula. The author is a New York-based artist and librarian; the afterword is written by a librarian at the Museum of Modern Art and the book is edited by a curator at the Cooper Hewitt Museum.

I have seen reviews for this book that either people love it or hate it. Maybe that is due to the style of writing and some angle the author was trying to work that I do not understand. This book is just bad. I am not shocked at how many rejection letters appear in the front from publishing companies not wanting to publish this book.

Written with wit and bite, you can't help but revel in the irony of this book.
It's a fun, breezy read; I could not put it down. Weist not only redefines the concept of a "romance novel," she redefines the concept of a librarian! Take off the glasses, let down the hair, there is a new generation taking over the roll. Thank goodness! Don't "discard" your book. With copies in the library of major art museums and institutions around the country, your copy will be worth more than the great time reading it.
