Wilbur Aalfs Library honors the "Siouxland Dewie System"
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Have you heard of the Dewey Decimal System? How about the Siouxland Dewie System?
Dewie Gaul, a retired District Court Judge, began his own personal classification system in 1936, as a third grader.
On Saturday, the Wilbur Aalfs Library in Sioux City recognized his achievement.
He recorded every book he's ever finished, not counting books read more than once, or books read to his children.
The 84-year old completed his 5,000th book on February 15th, and he says everyone should keep track of all the books they read.
"You spend all these hours reading a book, and then you should write down a little bit about the book, so you remember it. And that way, you haven't lost it. Now a days, a lot of people...'Did I read that? Yeah, I think I read that,'" said Dewie Gaul.
Over the years, Gaul has cross referenced the titles, dates, and his personal reviews.
