Books can be wallflowers too.
We have created an ongoing display of books that could be classified as wallflowers. These books have never been checked out, remain overlooked on the shelves and yet can be a very good read. There is no common theme other than the fact they've been overlooked.
A few you might take a look at are; Rabid Nun Infects Entire Convent; Life's Little Annoyances; The Art of Aging and The Unending Mystery (not what you'd think).
Go ahead, take a chance! Come in, check out some of the books on our display. You may be pleasantly surprised.
