Hold It!

Hold It!

How is it that all my library holds always seem to become available at once?

It doesn't seem to matter if I start out as second in line, fifth in line, or twenty-something in line. Whether some are paper copies at the local branch or electronic copies from the digital library. I wait patiently and then BAM! - All of a sudden I have a huge pile of books waiting for me.

And all those books must be read within two to three weeks, because there are more hold requests waiting behind me - meaning no renewals, sorry!

So, if you will please excuse me, I've got a lot of reading to do!

You start reading and the next thing you know you've read a good chunk of the book. You avoid looking at the clock, telling yourself that you'll just read one more chapter. And then another. And then another. When you finally tear yourself away from the book it's after midnight and you know you are really going to hate the alarm clock in the morning. Sound familiar? Welcome to my world and the reason why I've had to completely revamp my reading in bed criteria.   Read more >
