Excellent summary, Sue!

About 5-6 years ago, I wanted my own copy of the Chicago Manual of Style,
but it runs about $65 here in Canada, so I thought I'd see if I could find
it cheaper in a local used-bookstore that usually has an excellent reference
section. When I couldn't find it on the shelf, I thought I'd ask at the
counter. The wizened old bookworm type at the counter looked up at me and
said, "Have you looked in the fashion section?" (Why no, it hadn't occurred
to me...)
