[I need a librarian icon.]

I finally got to doing UnitHead's bookshelves this morning. I checked in with Alyssa about whether to go across or down and she said across, which I was prepared to concede to although my instinct is down (years in libraries, what can I do?) but it turned out that the shelves were already largely alphabetized (which was a yay in and of itself) and they went down (score)! Books included The Pearl by Steinbeck (one of the three books I have ever hated with a fiery passion -- Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea and Edith Wharton's Ethan Frome were the others ... all of which I should probably reread [I was in 9th/10th grade when I read them] -- though I should probably add C. S. Lewis' Surprised By Joy to that list given how much I ranted and raved when I finished it ::waves at Emma:: ) and Dickens' Great Expectations. And for my dad ... Economic Analysis of Law, Third Edition (Richard A. Posner) and Tom Schelling's The Strategy of Conflict.
