Comments on the clue
1.Hard to imagine this scenario, and a squishy recliner doesn't sound very appealing. Defines bibliophilia rather than bibliomania.
2.Good example of a subtractive anagram that isn’t impossible to solve. Wouldn’t a mobile librarian already have a passion for books?!
3.Clever to get librarian into the anagrind. Amusing story!
