I have a library addiction. I'm a big fan of my library's website (though I don't love their catalog), so I request most of my books while sitting here reading blogs, and like magic, they appear on a shelf at the library with my name on them. Yes, I'm a lazy library user. Generally, I have at least a dozen books/DVDs requested, thinking that they won't all arrive at the same time.
They all arrived at the same time. I nearly fell down at the sight of these beauties waiting for me to pick them up and take them to their new temporary home.
Gone by Lisa McMann
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
Aurelia by Anne Osterlund
My Life in France by Julia Child
Ahh, where do I begin!? Do I really betray Going Bovine and start one of these instead? I've already given up on The Eyre Affair, after getting more than halfway through the book! I do like it, but I don't really care for where the story is going. It's more about the quirkiness of the world and the literary allusions, and I'm just not in the mood for that at the moment. But one of those books up there, oh, how can I choose?
I also visited another library today, where a book was specifically purchased for me. How cool is that? It's a high school library, so I browsed their graphic novel section too.
Readicide: How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It by Kelly Gallagher
Kitchen Princess (Vol. 1-3) by Natsumi Ando
Chibi Vampire (Vol. 1-3) by Yuna Kagesaki
So, that's what's new this week. But I still have about 20 others checked out. I think I will have to read Once a Witch tonight/tomorrow morning, since it's due tomorrow, and I'm not allowed to renew it again. Perhaps I will get to Going Bovine over the weekend.
And which of the new books should I read first? I welcome suggestions. :)
