    • 10. I’m lost!
      in the 909 world history section, there are a lot of Islamic and Arab history books sprinkled though out. Shouldn't they all be together?
      In the constitutional section, 342-347, there are a bunch of different books on the amendments by smith. Seems like they should all be together? Also the Supreme Court Milestones books, mostly written by Gold -seems like there is some overlap between 320-321 and 335 -there are such wildly different subjects contained in section 363. I find it very confusing.
