Here is another book on home decorating. This one is from the 1990s and has a pastel country look. The overly pink softness feels odd – almost like you were living in an Orange Julius shop. I guess I don’t think of a pink/orange palette as particularly appealing. But I digress…

This isn’t as bad as some decorating books we have featured on our site. (See examples here, here, and here.) The point is that these materials are subject to fashion trends. These books need to be regularly weeded and updated.

Have you been wondering what those AOL disks that come in the mail are all about? Did you hear about something called Electronic Mail? This book has you covered. It is still in circulation as of this writing. I am pretty confident that public libraries can weed pretty much any tech books from the 1990s without damaging the library’s collections.
