What books caught my eye this week as they passed over the library counter and under my scanner? Well, it was weeding week at the library - no, not flowerbeds, but bookshelves. It's time to cull the stacks for low circulating items. These two items are now on the way to the Friends of the Library book sale.......but I'm sure you could order them online if you needed a copy.
How about The Second-hand Parrot by by Mattie Sue Athan and Dianalee Deter?
"Two expert parrot owners point out the pros and cons of adopting a bird that has had a previous owner. All Complete Pet Owner's Manuals are heavily illustrated with color photos and line art, and are filled with reliable, easy-to-understand information on pet care. The many titles in this series show and tell pet owners how to care for dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles, gerbils, hamsters, and virtually every other animal that is kept as a pet. The books give advice on purchasing and otherwise acquiring a pet, maintaining health care, housing, proper feeding, and where applicable, grooming and training. Clear, straightforward text comes with high-quality, full-color photos and anatomically accurate line art, as well as helpful tables and charts."

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)
