My Love Affair with the Library

Oh library, how I love thee!

I'm so sad I haven't been taking advantage of the library until now. Everything about it is great! It's so easy to reserve a book! I can easily check to see how many people are ahead of me for a certain book. I can have them hold a book for me that's available right now, so that I can just run in and pick it up instead of searching for it (always a good thing when you have a young child that doesn't like to sit still in the stroller unless it's moving!)

They even have a drive up book return!

The only thing I could find wrong with it was that I had to pay to park if I went before 5 on weekdays. But, today I found out that if you are parked in the ramps for less than an hour, it's free! Sweet!

Today I picked up eight (yes, eight!) books that were on hold for me. I was surprised so many of them became available so quickly! So, here's the list...guess I know what I'll be reading this month!

The Named (Book 1-Guardians of Time Trilogy) - Marianne Curley
The Dark (Book 2-Guardians of Time Trilogy) - Marianne Curley
The Key (Book 3-Guardians of Time Trilogy) - Marianne Curley
The September Sisters - Jillian Cantor
Graceling - Kristin Cashore
The Abstinence Teacher - Tom Perrotta
Wondrous Strange - Lesley Livingston
Blue is For Nightmares - Laurie Faria Stolarz

And I still have 2 others that I picked up last week:
Darkfever - Karen Marie Moning
The Truth About Forever - Sarah Dessen

I also still need to read the 8th Sookie Stackhouse book, and City of Glass. I ordered both of those, and should get them either tomorrow or Monday.

I'm going to be a busy girl...


  1. my library is the same way. though they don't have such a nice selection as yours. i like that we can jsut click a few buttons on the com p and run in and get your book. look how lazy we've gotten.... BUT I LOVE IT!!!

  2. haha...Oh I know - I find it a little sad that I'm too lazy to wander around and look for books most days, but anything that can save me a few minutes works for me!!

  3. I just came across your fun blog :)
    have fun with all those books

  4. Just come across your blog now, and enjoyed reading your posts on the books you have read.
    A lot of the authors are new to me, as here in Oz. we don't seem to get a lot of their books.
    When that happens, I head off to the Bookmooch site to track them down.
