OMG, guys! I did a thing. It started out innocently enough.
I love my @akronlibrary. Every book that I was interested in on this list they have ordered except for those that donâ€™t come out for a while yet.— Heather (@Dvmheather) January 28, 2021

Then there were a few more lists that I read through and put some holds in at the library. I’m primarily an ebook reader but some of these they were only going to have available in physical book form.
I got a email that a had something on hold. I went to pick it up and well,
The library clerk just kept pulling books off the hold shelf. Then he calmly asked, “Can I get you anything else?”
“I think that will do it for a bit.”
He laughed. “Yeah, this is an amazing group of books though. I want to read most of them.”
At the same time my ebook checkouts/requests looks like this:
And then of course, I got a review request I wanted to read. The book came as a Netgalley widget. I don’t use Netgalley except for things like that but I started looking around the food book section and one thing led to another and now I have 4 books there.
So this is me now:
So far I’ve finished Winter’s Orbit and am halfway through When You Look Like Us. I’ve started The Library of the Unwritten and a few things on Netgalley. That doesn’t count the book on my nightstand or the one in the bathroom…..
Oh, and, that library photo way at the top of the post? I found it by searching Pixabay for “many books”. Then I realized where it was. It is in a place that I HAD RESERVATIONS TO STAY AT AND TOUR THE LIBRARY last fall and where I didn’t get to go. Thanks, COVID!
