Please say hello if you've been on our blog--we'd love to hear from you!
I've been thinking a lot about how our category system allows us to shelve FACT and FICTION about a topic together, where a reader is more likely to find an array of information.Some books are such a melding of facts and story, or narrative with non-fiction, that we're glad we can put them together where they'll be found by readers looking for either information or fiction!Here are a few books in this category ---Are some readers missing these great books?
This is a list of "mixture" books of fact and fiction, and where they are located at several of the NY area libraries. Where could you put them to get more use? Any ideas?
