My salad dressing days


Unknown unknowns

I visited my recently refurb’ed local library, which looks all kinds of different with its abundance of funky seating, space age machinery and lack of staff.

As if the wall-to-wall faux parquet flooring wasn’t enough to throw me off my book-seeking scent, they’ve recategorised all the books.

Mostly the new categories are fathomable but I was quickly drawn to a new-fangled section of books entitled ‘Unknown’.

On closer inspection, this section was made up of sci-fi, books about feng shui* and Batman albums.

I have so many questions…

* pronounced FUNG SCHWAY – please! and NOT ‘feng shoo-ee’

Do they now mimic the bookshop categories of “Mind Body and SPirit” and “Tales of Childhood HArdship fabricated by journalists”

Fung-shooey, chop suey, whatever. 😉

Unknown, eh? Does that mean unknown topics, unknown authors, or unknown readers?
