Now that I am not in public education I needed access to free books again. 🙂 I set foot in a library today for the first time in maybe a decade? Possibly longer. Most of the books I’d like to read are checked out, but I decided I could use a lesson in patience. Just like the good old days, right?
The Serpent King yanked me from my reading rut, and now I want to read all of the things! I finished City of Bones [Book 1 of the Immortal Instruments series] within a week after it sat on my nightstand for a year or so! And of course I chose to read it when Shadowhunters [based on the Immortan Instruments novels] came out on FreeForm [formerly ABC Family]. Bad timing on my part, because the books are back in high demand. BUT I put myself on the waitlist with my fancy library card e-ID. cough-grandma-cough I almost checked out the final book in the trilogy just so I wouldn’t have to wait for it, but that’s just cruel.
Instead, I looked for a recommendation from a friend, The Testing. Another friend seconded the rec, so I feel pretty confident. Plus it’s part of a trilogy! Maybe I’ll be back in the library in just a few days. 🙂
I’ve been trying to make an effort to stay off technology, which is also why I have been reading a lot more. These headaches make staring at a screen quite painful. Plus it’s probably just healthy.
Do you still use your library card? What are you currently reading?
