I finished up all the due books, and trotted off to both libraries holding firmly to my resolutions, and did fairly well. I think ordering pizza at our favorite place first helped, since I was already feeling gratified.
My hold shelf offered up:
- Ender's Game: Battle School, the graphic novel version. X already read this, so it was clearly for him.
- Owl at Home, by Arnold Lobel. From the recommended list.
- How Obelix Fell Into the Magic Potion When He Was a Little Boy. Asterix is always cool. X already read this as well.
- A Touch of Dead, by Charlaine Harris. Again, it hardly counts because I've probably read all the stories and I got it for my sister anyway.
Total Books from Library Elf (counting all the kid stuff that I'm legally responsible for even if I hope not to read it): 92. Stuff on my card: 84. And I think they haven't taken everything off that I turned in; sometimes it takes the county a day or so to check the movies and music since they don't take it off your record until they check the disc. I'm in the double digits! Go Me!
I'll go sign up for Library Loot this week. That's a weekly event hosted in turns by Eva's A Striped Armchair (this week's host) and Marg's Reading Adventures where bloggers can share their library finds of the week. Some of them make me look restrained.
