Library book stack

Library books

I went to the library yesterday to return one book, and ended up checking out four more – oops/yay! From top to bottom: 1) The Bone People by Keri Hulme – I already had this checked out, just took it out of my bag for the picture. This one’s another pre-New-Zealand-trip reading recommendation. I started it last night and it’s really satisfying so far, with lots of satisfyingly-rendered quirky inner monologue. 2) Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, because I’ve been meaning to read this for ages but haven’t yet. 3) Public Library by Ali Smith, because I generally love her playfulness/smarts/inventiveness. 4) The Chimes by Anna Smaill, because I’ve been vaguely meaning to check it out since this 2015 post by Teresa over at Shelf Love. 5) Crosstalk by Connie Willis, because I want to get lost in a story and in the past I’ve found her work really good for that.

    STORY OF MY LIFE. I don’t think I’ve ever managed to make a library trip to return books without checking out new books in exchange. The only way I can work around this is if I drop the books off in the book drop when the library is closed. :p

    Haha, glad it’s not just me. If I just walk in and return my books and don’t look at anything on the shelves at all, I can do it, but that’s pretty rare.
