Lesbian Librarians – Audiobooks

Part of Pop Sugar’s 2016 reading challenge is to read a book starring a protagonist who shares your profession.  Librarians face a lot of stereotypes.  We’re often shown transforming from prudish spinsters to sexy temptresses, but rarely anything in between or multidimensional.  It can be a cringe-inducing experience to watch a movie or reading a book with a cardboard cut-out of a librarian stamping books, shushing kids, or somehow knowing everything.  Most people I’ve met who view librarians this way haven’t set foot in a library in years, or read/watched much online about how librarians currently engage their  communities.  Do you find yourself nitpicking a character whose profession you share?   

 

That being said, I’m searching for audiobooks featuring lesbian librarians.  I was browsing Audible this morning (because the avalanche of books I’m reading somehow just isn’t enough ^^) and found a handful to get me started.  The Lesbrarian Books list on Goodreads gave me a helpful boost, though sadly not all of the books listed have audiobook versions.  

If you have any recommendations to add, please let me know in the comments.  Thank you!
