and books on the shelf
I just received the following phone call:
Me: _____ ______ Library, this is Holley.
Patron: Yes, I'm calling for ____ ____. She wants you to get a few books for her and she'll pick them up this afternoon.
Me: Certainly. What are the titles?
Patron: Well, I don't know.
Patron: She just wants you to set aside some books for her.
Me: Well, what does she like to read? I need at least a few details.
Patron: Well, hold on just a minute.
Patron: She says you have her on file.
Me: *giving up* Okay, I'll get something together.
Now, I think our collection numbers well over 100,000 items in every genre you can imagine. Let me put it in perspective for you. I need you to go to Wal-mart and pick a few things up for me. What are those items, you may ask? You pick.
