I admit, I send generic emails to people when I feel the pressures of time, but I have to say that the email I received from the public library was a bit of a surprise…

I couldn’t help but reply and let them know that Mills and Boon is not appropriate for the younger visitors to the library. I know a number of children with both a library card and an email address likely in the library database that I wouldn’t want to see turn up at the library asking for directions to the new Mills and Boon collection.
