last library haul, I checked out 8 books and was able to finish 5 of them in three weeks. I found it was especially difficult because I also have purchased books that I want to get to as well. This faces me with the dilemma of library due dates versus what I actually feel like reading.
I recently went back to the library and checked out 15 books (plus 1 e-book and 1 dvd).
As I walked out of the library with my plastic bad loaded to full capacity, and several books in arms, I realized I have reached the highest level of book hoarding. There is no way I can finish all 15 (in addition to the ones I renewed from the last haul) in 3 weeks. But I'll admit, when I unloaded the bag on my bedroom floor and spread them all out, I was filled with great zeal at all my choices. I really got a great selection this time and it's going to be so much fun getting to decide which ones get read first.
I'm going to start this haul by including what I renewed/returned from my last book haul.
Maureen Johnson's 13 Little Blue Envelopes
Sarah Dessen's The Truth About Forever
Maureen Johnson's The Last Little Blue Envelope
My main reason for returning this one is because I have yet to read its predecessor, 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I figured I'd borrow it again once at least finish its predecessor first.
Thirteen Reasons Why, How to Save A Life, Where Things Come Back, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, Boy Meets Boy
A Natural History of Dragons, This Is What Happy Looks Like, Night, How To Train Your Dragon, The Realms of Possibility
Fables Vol. 1, The Happiness Project, Gone Girl, 17 & Gone, Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone (just realized the last 3 all have "Gone" in the title)
(I apologize for the glare. Library books almost always have protective coats which are very reflective when you take photos in well-lit rooms.)
Even though its slightly overwhelming having to choose which books to read and which ones to wait on at the risk of not being able to renew, I love the challenge. But that's just the book-lover in me. <3
