Yes, We Have Big Books

Elephants: A Cultural and Natural HistoryA few days ago, a man approached the Library Information Desk and asked for a "big book."

"Okay," I replied. "Do you have a specific title in mind?"

"No, I just need a big book," said the patron.

Inside the HindenburgWithout further discussion, I got up and led the patron to the oversized-book collection. "Is this what you need?" I asked.

"Oh, this is perfect!" exclaimed the man. He grabbed two large books at random, and headed toward the check-out desk.
