A library haul after months | Notes from my Reading

Despite so much going on over here between work, house projects, yard work, and just daily living challenges in this pandemic era, I've been able to squeeze in time to read as well, which I'm thankful for, because the news has been abysmal these past few weeks for various reasons and I'm continually worrying about where humanity is headed, even more so than I did before.

A library haul after months...My biggest highlight in books this past week was that the library opened for holds pickup. I'd been checking their website every week to find if next week was going to be the week it opened. So when the notice finally came through last week, I was beyond thrilled. I was also very unsure what books to request from the library since I had gotten very used to reading online. Still, I had a few requested when they called me to schedule a one-hour window for pickup. I did request a ton of books after that though, so I expect a bigger bag this week.

Teaser Tuesdays -- Feb 02, 2010


Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.


So, Rainwater won the battle of the books today! I managed to convince myself that if I didn't get to Not my Daughter, I can still place it on hold and read some other time, hopefully when all my holds do not come together. (Speaking of holds, I have 3 new holds available now. So I doubt there will ever be a situation when all my holds cease to come together)


"August eleventh, 1934," the woman read aloud. Then looking back at him, she asked, "What does it commemorate? An anniversary? Birthday? Something exceptional?"

Interesting teaser! Enjoy!

I just think you're lucky that you're allowed to place holds on so many books. My library limits me to three. Three! Luckily, my hubby doesn't use his card too much, so I can put three more on his, but that still feels like a ridiculously low number.

Diane, I loved it too!

Jennifer, I can put only 8, but yeah, 3 sucks! 6, too. I guess for people like me, anything above 5 is too much, considering all my holds tend to come together! Maybe its the library's way of making us feel less guilty, in the event we can't read a book. ;-)
