Go read something your own size

I do not see why university students insist on asking where they can find Harry Potter books. I’m guessing it has escaped them entirely that we are at a university library where serious people conduct serious research and read serious books. If you must lower yourself to reading fiction as an adult, please stick to the classics, preferably the heavy ones.

The last student who asked me for the Hunger Games seemed offended when I rolled my eyes at him, which was almost amusing.
