OK, so the atomic accidents book is for me - but whose current interests include urban pests? Which sounds really interesting too... argh, you got me again!

Gotcha! is what it's all about. ;-) Be grateful I don't teach you the subject heading game ... that's a guaranteed path to doom.

A half dozen or so titles are known current interests; the rest, including "Pests in the city", are general this-looks-cool types. Though "Pests" is also on my own hmmmm list (I already own books on rats, parasites, and blood-feeding animals so it'd fit into my library very nicely)
