Read all about it! No more tomato, tomahto...

Several moons back, I told you that I have a tiny niggle about Danish libraries.  Now, to be honest, it was really only an incy wincy niggle - because, oh my word, how I love our Danish libraries!  You see, I thought it was reallyconfusing to have English language books split up into two different sections (British English or American English).  So you would often have to look in both sections before you could find the book you were looking for...    Danish Libraries (Part Three) - You say tomato, I say tomahto...


Anyway.  I was perusing the (beautiful) shelves of our local library on Thursday and it suddenly hit me...


Bam!  They've now put the whole lot together! "English and American" :)


Much better!  And a lot easier to browse...


And who did I need to thank for this marvelous - and no doubt very time consuming - reshuffle?  A librarian called Maria. "Tak, Maria!" :D

On the other hand, I'm really pleased that they've still retained a sub-section of English and American novels...  My favourite genre, Crime!


There are shelves and shelves of English crime novels and it's nice to be able peruse at leisure and find new authors to try.  Though I'm definitely the cosy crime type (like "Death under the Dryer" by Simon Brett, "August Heat" by Andrea Camilleri and "Bellfield Hall" by Anna Dean).  None of the heavy stuff, thank you very much.  Let's keep it (u)hyggelig!


Have a marvelous (marvellous...) Monday!

Diane,
As a retired public librarian, I can assure you we have those same "niggles" here in the USA. I often was frustrated with all the little collections, especially in our children's area. The Adult Fiction was divided into General Fiction, Science Fiction, Mystery, Large Print, and Western..oh, and the paperbacks were separate with the above divisions and Romance!! Although clearly labeled, it was confusing to say the least. I am very happy for you that Maria, the librarian, has made life easier for you. Happy reading!!
