this is what i didn’t see at the melbourne cricket club library

 

love the white gloves, which are required if you want to read the cricket book. and i have no idea why katy us attempting to climb the shelves of a library which she doesnt even work at.

over dinner i casually enquired if the staff had ever seen any famous cricketers using the library [in an attempt to get inside cricket gossip]. the response was a stare and the question thrown back at me: can cricketers read? 

point taken. i replied by saying that they could write their own best selling biographies [therefore read??]. once again that look and a question as answer: have you ever read one of them?  point taken again.

however, to give credit to cricketers and cricket fans in general, during the boxing day test matches the library attracts over 12,000 visitors a day.
