<<On a happier note, we're talking about buying graphic novels for
(private school) library. My partner in crime has a twelve-year-old
daughter who LOVES manga, so she's sympathetic to the cause. It's
problematic because the age range is from 6 to 14, but not impossible.
would help if we had a budget, of course....>>
I know my friends would be thrilled if our library included manga,
though I am less into it. My school library seems to have forgotten
that libraries include BOOKS. There is a lot of technology and many
computers, but not many books- even less fiction, even less fantasy/sci
fi. No DWJ. The books we do have are a very strange selection. There
is often the middle of a series only. We are missing many important
classics that you would expect to be in a school library. The new
fiction books are just weird. I really wonder who chooses them? Some
consist only of Hot Steaminess. A little of that is ok, but when there
is no plot? And in a school library?
