library books

I work in a public library. These are some of the books I currently have checked out…I think right now I have 31 items on my card.  I’m also reading The Secret Garden on my iPad.


Two questions…what are you reading right now?  How often do you visit your local library?

  1. I’ve read small excerpts from a half-dozen books, but the one that seems destined to be my next full read is Don’t Breathe A Word by Holly Cupala.

    As for the local library question? In childhood, I practically lived at the library. Now I’d say I make it there about once a month, which is a little depressing in light of the fact it’s only 2.5 blocks away! I’m trying to shift toward visiting at least once every three weeks, the book check-out window, so my son grows up appreciating libraries the way I do.

  2. Once every three weeks or a month is good! You’re lucky to live so close to a library. I’m about a five minute walk from the one I work at (which is very handy since I’m not really a morning person).

    Do you feel compelled to finish a book you’ve started? If I’m not enjoying it, I don’t have a problem not finishing it. But I’ve talked to many people who say once they start a book they have to finish it, no matter what.

    • I used to! The friend who helped me end a long reading dry spell last year got me out of the habit by pointing out that reading all those words that didn’t move me meant I (a) was losing precious time to read words that did and (b) stopped reading. It was hard to put down a book that first time, but liberating, too. 😉
