Wrapped in the Flag : A Personal History of America's Radical Right by Claire Connor

Read and reviewed Sep 2013

Rules of the game:

1. Please play on the most recent correct post.

2 Please verify that no one else has posted while you were preparing your post.

3. The title of the book cited must have one word, at least, which is the same as a word in the previous title.

4. The repeated word in the new title must be other than an article ("a," "an," or "the").

5. The repeated word must be spelled exactly as the word was spelled in the previous title, e.g., "prune" is not the same word as "prunes," and "loyal" is not the same word as "loyalty."

6. The repeated word must be in the title as shown in a LT library listing, or on the title page of the book. A sub-title or a series name can be included if the sub-title or series name is included in the title of a LT library listing, or is printed on the title page of the book.

7. A hyphenated word is one word, not two, e.g., "thunder-clouds," and if used must be repeated in full, not in part only.

8. No repeats on current thread.

9. If you have read the book it would be informative that you so indicate and tell when you read it, if you can.

10. Try to use Touchstones. Put brackets around the title and double brackets around the author. If Touchstones don't work, try using an HTML link.

John Major: The Autobiography by John Major

This game is so silly and childish, like the games I played at my elementary school.

I even contacted the main library at Lakeway, New Jersey, and asked if they had the autobiography by Major.
They answered, quite cynically, that I had to wait for my turn patiently because currently it was in the hands of a rabbi or someone.
They also said they were not sure whether my interest was sincere, being so far away.
So I am a bit disappointed.
Maybe they need some training? Or they listen to some bad advisors?
They will lose a reader this way.

They don't want to give me the book, just some boring mind-damaging comic books.

asurbanipal, your experience sounds really weird. I can't imagine a librarian saying those things. What Have you done, if anything, to cause such treatment? At our library when someone requests a book it results in the present holder of the book not being able to renew it--which seems like a logical procedure to me.
