Circulation Desk

I've gone to the circulation desk at my library more than once trying to find a book about which I have just the merest wisps of information. I'm trying to find a book on CD whose title I can't remember. My sister recommended it to me. It's about a house, or construction. Or an architect. But I think maybe it's told in first person by the house itself?

Happily, the librarians get into problem-solving mode with me and we have a grand time following the few crumbs I've offered up as clues.

And we almost always find what I'm looking for.

Wonder what'd transpire if I went to the circulation desk and made the following query: Do you know of a book whose cover might go well with this bookmark? … preferably fiction, preferably with a plot I'll like?

  1. Dotty, I think it's worth a try. You should take some bookmarks in with you and see what they get you! I'm thinking the current bookmark is leaning towards science fiction or some kind of space odyssey.

    1. Thanks for the nudge—maybe I WILL bring a few bookmarks in with me. I'm thinking my friends at the circulation desk might just rise to the occasion. Hope they steer me towards other than sci-fi!

  2. This reminds me of maybe a Gothic mystery novel. Reminds me of a modern stained glass window. Love those lines? Good luck with your book hunting.

    1. Oh my gosh, a Gothic mystery novel?! That would be other than my usual! I thought stained glass, also, Carol. Thanks for your comments : )

  3. The view form a bomber immediately comes to mind. Then map. Then Map of the Human Heart. All in the space of a second. Or so. This looks like town mixed in with farm land. English countryside. (Downton confessed Anglophile here.)
    I fell in love with this movie when it first came out. Watched it over and over. The lead slightly resembles my husband, (at the time). It's a love story... who can resist. And I just bet the book is even better than the movie.
    All that from your wonderful bookmark. I even see trees and bushes, as an architect would show them. LOVE YOUR ART Dotty!

    1. Thanks for your commentary and enthusiasm, Sheila. I see an aerial view, map, and architect's flora indicators as well! Love your seeing a map of the human heart, and love that several images flashed through in split seconds.

  4. First thing I saw this morning in my mailbox: and I had to laugh really loud!

    1. Hi Simone, don't you just love a good laugh, especially right at the start of a new day? Glad I could be the catalyst!
