The Night Bookmobile by Audrey Niffenegger, 40 pages, read by Courtney, on 08/28/2012

Maybe someday you will get really lucky and come across the Night Bookmobile. You can’t go looking for it; you’ll have to wait for it to find you. When you do see it, it will be blasting music that you know and love. When you board it, you will slowly begin to realize that you’ve read everything on the shelves. Every. Single. Thing. When you finally have to tear yourself away from the wonders of the Night Bookmobile, you’ll find that morning has arrived. You also won’t be able to take anything from the shelves with you.
It might be years, even decades before you see the bookmobile again. When you do, you’ll notice how many more books are lining its shelves and you’ll realize that this is *your* bookmobile. It contains everything you’ve ever read and its librarian can tell you where and when you read it. But he still won’t let you check anything out. It’s against the rules.
Oh, and if you really want to be a librarian who works on the Night Bookmobile….well, let’s just say you had better be positively sure that’s exactly what you want.
A charming and slightly haunting read.
