Listening to: Handsome Devil – The Smiths

Okay, so that’s all wonderful, but this is what’s been bugging me lately. (Well, not “bugging” so much as “providing an interesting challenge”.)

Say you’re in a library. There’s a fiction section (with alphabetical call numbers), and there’s a non-fiction section (which uses Dewey). What would you expect to find in each? For example, where would you look for the following?:

A novel by Margaret Atwood
A biography of Marie Curie
A book of poetry
A collection of short stories
A biography of Virginia Woolf
An autobiography by Simone de Beauvoir
A book about the politics of housework

(I am basically looking for people to agree with me, so make sure you get the answers right!)
