The Librarian

It is assumed that “Bokklubben Magnus”, “The Librarian” project was started around 2013, when Magnus, a librarian at a library in Oslo, met a young woman in the library who was confused about what to read. Eager to help, librarian he was, to spare her the choices between the endless shelves of books, they agreed he’d reserve (and later, when the pandemic hit: send) her a new book for every book she finished.

“It’s like a masochism of the mind!”
exclaimed a woman who first heard about this agreement. The reader did after hall have to finish all the books in order to get new ones, whether she liked them or not. This way she would be exposed to thoughts and worlds she would never otherwise have visited.
