In my first library book haul post, I picked up five books. I dropped three of them, but The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender was a five star read and I’m greatly enjoying Buddhism Plain & Simple so far. I had two more holds come shortly after that post – All the Birds, Singing and I Forgot to Remember. I read both and posted a few thoughts here.
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve picked up a good number of library books, through planned trips, spontaneous browsing and hold requests. Here’s what’s sitting in the pile:
- Floating City by Sudhir Venkatesh
- Bone & Bread by Saleema Nawaz
- The Road to Middle-Earth by T.A. Shippey
- Doll Bones by Holly Black
- How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid
- Moon at Nine by Deborah Ellis
- The Archived by Victoria Schwab
- Visit the library once a week
- I forgot this was actually on my goals list! Oops…I haven’t been keeping track, but I think I have managed this anyhow. I’ve been stopping in lots to pick up books. I haven’t had any of those fun afternoons at the library yet, but now that I’m done school I hope to get in at least two before the end of the month.
- Read 12 library books
- I Forgot to Remember by Su Meck
- All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld
- The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton (review forthcoming!)
- A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
- Huh, only four! Two I loved, two I am ambivalent about. I don’t think I’ll have a problem reading eight more now that I’m out of school.
- Attend two library-hosted events
- Halfway there! I participated in an Ideas Fair last month. Today I inadvertently found a clue for the library’s book hunt. Next time I visit I’m going to give it a try. After checking out upcoming events, I might attend an outdoor open mic reading session or a guided tour of a local park.
