The New Book on the Shelf

Post by m_a_kelly » Sun Sep 20, 2009 10:36 am

The new book was placed on the bookcase between Lady Chatterly’s Lover and the Kama Sutra. Since one can endure only so much of anything, the stunned little paperback crept sheepishly away from those two naughty tomes and jumped to the shelf below. There, it nestled comfortably between Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey.

Within minutes, the people on the cover began ducking, shaking their fists as arrows and bullets whizzed past their heads, dangerously close. The book catapulted to the shelf underneath, sighing with fatigue. It squeezed between Dante’s Inferno and Milton’s Paradise Lost.

And then all hell broke loose.

m_a_kelly wouldn't be a librarian, by any chance? I always wondered what they do to distract themselves from their imprisonment in the Dewey Decimal System.
Welcome, m_a, delighted to meet you.

Hi Strawman;

I' m not a librarian, actually. Just a science fictionfantasy nerd who likes to spend a lot of her time trapped in that part of the House of Dewey. They should just put a cot in there for me, seriously. Thanks for the welcome.

Hi Mr. Tweedy;
Decided to let the"little paperback" be the unnamed protagonist who represents us all, say after a crazy weekend, then you realize you have to go back to work. That's where the hell part comes in...Or maybe I just hate Mondays.
