Submitter: Remember your “How To Ski A Little Bit” book and how some folks wished to read “Alice In Womanland”? Well, I found it! This is actually a “Last Copy.” For the non-library types (if you post this) it means that when a book, fiction or non-fiction, is down to only one copy in our county-wide system, they send the very last book to headquarters and if it’s not too bad a shape, they keep it there. Any person who wants the book can put it on hold and read it. Which is what I’m doing now. So people who worry about books no longer being available when they’re weeded need not worry because it is saved somewhere!
It’s not a bad book. I have to look some people it references up such as Jack E. Leonard and Helen Gurley Brown – what can I say? When it comes to insult comics I know Don Rickles and I wouldn’t read Cosmo if you paid me a million dollars. A billion, yes, but not a dime less. I guess it’s a parody of The Feminine Mystique but I’ve never read that. It’s got some rather oddball stories meant to be funny about women – such as the “advice letter” from a woman who preserves an already burnt pot roast with hairspray and uses it to get her husband to take her out to dinner. The tale of a marriage nearly broken up because the wife won’t drink. An advertisement for a school to teach women how to have better sex. I’m on the dining chapter right now.
Anyway, let people know the book is out there for Inter-library loan (ILL) if they really want to read it because we do have it as a Last Copy!
Holly: There you have it, folks! It’s out there for the asking!
