I had an unpleasant surprise at the library today: made a beeline for the history section and found myself gazing blankly at the travel books. Seems someone had the bright idea of shifting the biographies from the end of the non-fiction shelves to the beginning, and now I have to relearn where everything is. I cheered up, though, at the unintentional comedy of Don Quixote shelved under Q ... and at the number of books I found that I can count toward various challenges. The best discovery was Alex & Me - the Non-Fiction 5 Challenge specifies that one book must be different from the other four, and for a while I was at a loss as to where I would find a non-fiction book with nothing to do with history.

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg.
