What the Dewey?
Many people are apparently intimidated by the Dewey Decimal system! I know, can you believe it!?! Well, once upon a time so was I, but that’s another story. The fact is, those numbers on the spines of the nonfiction books (you know, the mostly serious books) tell you what the book is about. Use the charts we have up, one of our bookmarks, or ask a librarian to find the number of your favorite subject. Most of the books on your favorite pastime will be grouped together; e.g. 629 = cars, 741.597 = comics, 641.5 = cooking. So go find your number! You can thank me later.
