Bye Bye Bye

*NSYNC
Boekhoff and Kallen
2003

Submitter: This book is ‘tearing up my heart’ knowing it’s still sitting on the shelf all these years. So who’s  going to weed this book? “It’s gonna be me.” I guess I could have gone with Bye Bye Bye old book…

Holly: This was published just as the group was breaking up. I think we can safely let it go. “This I Promise You.”

The Cars cover

Victim of Love

The Cars
Kamin and Goddard
1986

Submitter: This was an excellent book about a local band to purchase for this library. 35 years later, the band split up, reunite under a new name, reunite under the old name, and saw two of the found members die, and all not covered here. Time to Shake It Up and replace!

Holly: This was NOT Just What I Needed. You Might Think so…but you’d be wrong. Weed it. Drive it off a cliff. Give it to My Best Friend’s Girl. Weeding is not Magic, it’s science. Library Science.

Ok, I’m done now.

Elton John cover

Rocket Man

Elton John
Taylor
1975

Submitter: Straight from the juvenile collection of a small public library. Elton John! Well, Elton John circa 1975. 40 years later, there is a lot more to Elton’s story than what is printed here.

Holly: There sure is. He’s better than ever! I’m a big fan of Sir Elton’s. About the only things kids might know about Elton John is the Lion King “Circle of Life” song, and that was looooong after this book was published! Replace this one with a biography of Justin Bieber and buy a newer bio of Elton John for the adult section.
