NOTE: If you are looking up “Bud, not Buddy” in the library catalog, don’t put in the word “not.”

If it’s getting late in the summer, you’re better off trying to buy a paperback of your summer reading book since availability may be limited. You can try the used books at Amazon, or go over to Barnes and Noble or Baker Books.
