Pic Pick! It's a Book! About a Book?


Today's pic pick is a book about being in a book? A book?

It's a book? Wait, I am confused and amused!

Yes, you read right, today's pic pick includes books about books, with the words book in the title.

We've seen a couple of more books about being in a book, reminding us of their value (no, I am not being biased because I love the library. OK, maybe a little).

Here are some below!
