The stacks are dangerous

Okay, so I’ll start here where I started myself.  At the library, of course.  I went into the library catalog and, feeling smug about my librarian skills, went straight for the subject headings.  I punch in ‘aunts’ and nothing looks too promising.  In fact, one heading stops me in my tracks:

Aunts — Crimes Against

At that point, I decide against subject headings and scour the catalog using keywords.  There wasn’t much to be had.  I tried Amazon as well and there were no how-to or dummies books for aunthood.  The only title I might try to track down is The Uncle Book: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Kid’s Favorite Relative.  It really seems to address my mission as an aunt and mentions Nintendo.  Hopefully it isn’t too man-centric.
