it's the small things that matter.
i'd like to read the intimate world of abraham lincoln by c.a. tripp. so i check the memphis public library's catalog. no holdings. not even listed.
just for kicks, i check the seattle public library's catalog. four copies of the book, one checked out with a second in transit (i'm assuming to be read by some wonderful seattle-ite. of love, perhaps.).
won't someone please unbuckle the bible belt so i can get the hell out of this place????
