[BHE 216] “Adopting” Previously Owned Books


Fats here.

Every Sunday, we share the books that have found their way into our shelves either from libraries, book shops – or simply landed into our mailboxes. About a month ago, my boyfriend’s cousin sent me a message on Facebook telling me that he was weeding his bookshelf. He asked if I was interested in taking a look at his collection before he donates the weeded books. It was too good of an offer to refuse.

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).
