Best Books Set in Libraries
Settings. Settings are a pretty popular topic here at Top Ten Tuesday. I've done lots of posts on settings. Top Ten Settings in Books. Top Ten Most Vivid Settings. Top Ten Settings I'd Like to See More Of. And Paris, of course. Even a Top Ten Books That Take Place in Paris.
So let's venture off today to a new setting, a quieter setting. Let's take a look at books set in libraries. What are the top ten books set in libraries?
You may be saying, "Top Ten Books Set in Libraries? Really? I bet there aren't but ten books set in libraries!" I would reply, "Surprise! You'd be amazed at how many books are set at least in part in libraries." It was very difficult to pick just ten. So many, in fact, that I had to break the books into small lists.
Here we go....

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists!
