I got more books than I expected this week – went in to pick up three and there were six waiting for me! It turns out there should have been one more, so I sent my husband back to get it the next day, and he came home with another hold, but STILL not the one the system says is waiting for me, so I might have to go back in and ask the librarians what’s up with America For Beginners. My account says it’s waiting, but it’s apparently not on the shelf!
Like America for Beginners, A River of Stars and Number One Chinese Restaurant were on my Summer TBR list – I thought they’d release and make their way to me in time to read them this summer, but here it is October! If I’m dependent on library books, I may need to remember not to put New Releases on my seasonal TBR lists. Another “new” release that just got to me is Catwoman: Soulstealer. It’s the third in the DC Icons series, after Wonder Woman and Batman.
After hearing it recommended multiple times at the Baltimore Book Festival, I checked out Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone. The other three books I checked out this week are Bob Woodward’s FEAR: Trump in the White House (which I know I won’t be able to renew, so it’s high up on my to-read list right now, and lord that cover is creepy), Carol Anderson’s One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying Our Democracy, and Many Love: A Memoir of Polyamory and Finding Love(s) by Sophie Lucido Johnson. I now have quite a bit of heavy nonfiction out from the library that I need to sit down and read, so I may have to drop by the grocery store and get some crunchy snacks to help keep me awake!
That’s awesome that you’re utilizing the library so much. I really need to use mine more. I do love putting things on hold there and picking them up but I always come out with more than what I had been planning. I have four out right now that I still need to read and two of those are two in three weeks, lol. 😀
I absolutely adore the library. I’ve always been a pretty heavy library user – and living in weird places while my husband was in the military gave me a lot of appreciation for good library systems! Maryland’s Marina system for interlibrary loans is fantastic. They even managed to get a book for me from a university library when none of the state libraries had it.
Oh wow, that’s awesome. I haven’t used the interlibrary loan system yet, just the regular requests from another branch.
