Spellchecking restaurant menus

trade paperbacksHighly recommended by the person who just returned the book:
NFI PA Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader
by Anne Fadiman, a memoir of her word-obsessed family. They read, discussed, and argued about anything in print. This is a non-fiction trade paperback, so you would find it on the shelves nearest the newspapers. "Mass market" paperbacks are the short, fat ones in the revolving racks. "Trade" paperbacks are the taller, skinny one. You will find most of the fiction ones on the display wall. We also have special places for certain types of content: classics, science fiction, romance and so on. So you need to look carefully at the item information line at the bottom of each catalog record.
