PS. My primary school librarian would kick my arse for listing things alphabetically but leaving in ‘the’ (as in “The Cat Zine” is listed in “T” instead of “Cat Zine, The” listed in “C”), but I feel like the way I was taught has gone a bit out of style. I think more people expect to look in the “T” section for something that starts with “The”.
