Book lovers are, by their very nature, an eccentric group of people. They range from book hoarders to collectors of first editions and to those whose entire attention is focused on one genre or author. No matter what type of book lover, a book lover is, one thing is certain, they cherish their books with an undeniable passion. In Richard Seltzer's new collection, Libraries, Librarians, and Book Lovers he has gathered together seventy-four books that honor book lovers, the librarians who so deftly manage large book collections, and the libraries who hold within their walls untold treasures.

The seventy-four books in this collection are housed on a single CD-ROM disc, which is designed for use with Window's PCs. For the most part, the books in this collection presented in plain text format, making them accessible to visually impaired readers using screen readers and screen magnification programs.
