Demotivational Poster: Library Fail

Library Fail by ~BlameThe1st on deviantART

This is perhaps the only demotivational poster in which I use my own image rather than one I found on the internet (and considering that my other demotivationals have been removed—or at risk of being removed—for copyright violations, I think this one is safe to upload uncensored on Deviantart).

I recently checked out The Eye Of The World, the first book in the Wheel Of Time series, and was surprised to discover that the book, a fantasy novel part of a series similar to Lord Of The Rings or Eragon, was labeled as a “Western.” Clearly the librarians have neglected to read the book, if not glance at the cover. I guess one could mistake the samurai-like warrior riding horseback as a cowboy, but even then, that would require a great level of ignorance.

Once I’m done reading this book, I’ll try contacting the library and see if I can have this mistake corrected. I’d like to know how they managed to make such a glaring faux pas.
