I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'stock of unsold books' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both man-made objects as well as being plural nouns.
Maybe there's a link between them I don't understand?

'memoranda about a' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'about' could be 're' ('re' means regarding or about) and 're' is found within the answer.
'a' is present in the answer.
The remaining letters 'minders' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).
