Book Wishlist

2012 has been a busy year for me. Workings 1.5 jobs and attending school part-time online is challenging, but something that I know that I can handle. The downside to this– is I am looking at some very interesting books and wishing I could squeeze in some pleasure reading. It’s true that I own more clothes than books. Think of me as the Jessica Parker from Sex in the City…only I have lots of books in my closets. If I had a permanent dwelling place…it would probably look something like the photo below…

    This reminds me of one of the regular customers from my library. Every day he comes in with a list of 14 books for us to search for, and place holds for any titles not at our specific branch. The library has a 75-item limit for checkouts, and I am quite sure he makes full use of it. The Circ staff have one shelf in their workroom just for his holds. lol He finds his titles from weekly book reviews.

    I know that feeling well. There are always more books that I WANT to read than I can actually manage! I’m lucky if I get through one “fun” book per month.
