Meet bibliotherapists, millionaire librarians, and time traveling photographers: Bookishness for September 16, 2013

A prescription for loneliness
“Books that fill you with friends are… great – such as Robert Graves’ I Claudius. And Emil Zola’s Rougon -maquart series, 19 novels, which will fill your mind with an amazing population of characters!” Maclean’s takes a look at bibliotherapy.

Millionaire, librarian, and my newest hero
An Ohio librarian secretly amassed a small fortune (perhaps what she saved by borrowing rather than buying books?) which she then left to the library on her death.

The time traveling photographer
20130913-OldNew-CrossingToronto photographer Harry Enchin plays with time in his current exhibition of cityscape mash-ups, Toronto Time.

Who said it?
Taylor Swift or Chuck Palahniuk? (A shockingly challenging quiz.)
