Do You Have to Love Reading to be a Librarian?
I will read if I have to, usually for school or food preparation. It seems as though all of my MLIS professors love to read and they just shove article after article down your throat. I honestly would read them if they weren't saying the same thing each semester. It has become extremely redundant to be given the umpteenth article about how important libraries and librarians really are, blah blah blah.
If being a non-avid reader will affect my prospective career in whatever librarianship route I choose, who knows? I don't see myself going the public route so reader advising wouldn't be in my future.
The main thing I learned from that class is that indexes are a life saver.
