Books, books, and more books…

I get a lot of my books from the public library.  That way, I only buy the ones I really love.  Sometimes, the wait time for the most popular books can be forever.  For instance, the list at my library right now for “Mockingjay” is 2,440 people long.  Now, I requested this early so I’m under 100, but still.  Do you know how long it’s going to take for some of those people to get that book.

Because some of the wait times are so long, I usually have one book at a time.  However, in the last three days, I’ve been notified of three books that are waiting for me to pick up.  I guess I’d better get reading!!!  You can’t renew these books because there’s someone else in line right behind you who wants it.

Anyone else do it the same way?

  1. I just go to a shop, look around, find a book that is interesting and start reading it. Sometimes i read 3 books at the same time.

    I love to do that because that way I can choose in what world I would like to escape in.

    I don’t really buy books that are popular, I don’t know why I just do.
    Loved your post!


  2. Hey, just wanted to mention that I noticed that your link on my site had somehow been deleted. I apologize, and it’s back now.

    *Not that anyone visits my site and would be steered your way anyhow… but it’s a matter of principle. 😀


  3. Yep. I borrow from the library and only spend my money on books that I really love. I asked my library last week about Mockingjay (even though I know I want to buy it) and there are going to be 4 copies and I’d be number 9 on the list. So…of course I can’t wait even more than a day and I will buy it. In fact, I plan on purchasing all three. I borrowed the first two from the library, but I want to own that series. I wish I could afford to buy whatever book I want, but then again, I find it a waste as I’m not one to often read a book more than once (though I’m contemplating reading TMI series again :-)).

    So, yes. I’m a big time borrower, but there are some books that I will not wait for and Mockingjay is one of them!
