Some things really happen by coincidence but I’m beginning to wonder if something else is afoot. The last six books I read all have an important character named Henry. The titles include Breathless (Dean Koontz), Edgar Sawtelle (Wroblewski) and Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet (Ford). Then I started Olive Kitteridge (Strout) and in the very first section there are two Henrys! It’s a great name, the name of kings, synonymous with power and strength. Its popularity is on the rise here and in Europe, but 7 books in a row? So far no Henrys in my current book, Safe from the Neighbors.
To everyone, including all our Henrys, thanks for continuing to support the circulation staff and our renovated desk. We are happy with your positive reaction to the self-checkout machines and to our more efficient way of handling reserves and returns. We are always open to your comments or suggestions. Just a reminder not to put AV games in our book drop; bring them to the AV department.
