The Library Books: The Story of Libraries from Camels to Computers by Maureen Sawa

I read this book for the Bibliography Challenge.

I didn’t know anything about where libraries came from so this book was interesting. My only qualm was that I found it a little hard to follow. I don’t know my history and so all the names and places mentioned got me a little mixed up. I couldn’t keep them straight. I think someone who knows their world history would have done better with that.

However I learned a lot of interesting things about early books as well as libraries. The illustrations are good and fit well with the book.
