I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I finished reading Libraries of the Ancient World by Lionel Casson. It is a short work of 177 pages with an index and notes. There are some black and white illustrations. It starts with clay tablets then moves to scrolls and final parchement codexes. It is solid overview of how libraries developed. The book ends with the middle ages.
