Overheard today

One older lady to another: Oh, I never go to [nearby city] any more.

Other older lady: Oh, you should! We have a lovely new police station. It's the size of the Taj Mahal!

Lady: Where are the books from 1961?

Me: Any particular one?

Lady: The one on harmonica playing.

The books from 1961 Lady should go to Sweden. I'm not sure if it was true of all libraries, but in the Uppsala University library, the books were arranged chronologically within their subject. In some ways it was fascinating, in other ways it was incredibly frustrating.
