lesley--I love the library, but I have piles of other things to get through, too. At this point, the library is just a temptation!

I'm trying to avoid the library now too, and get through some of the books I've managed to accumulate over the past couple years - that said, I have about four library books sitting on my bedside table as I write!

dewey--sounds like you have a well-run library system. We have some great branches and some not-so-great branches, and unfortunately, the one that is walking distance to me is only so-so. The kids' section is good, but the adults' stuff is kinda sad. I bet if I worked the system better, I'd probably be able to get new things a little faster, though...

I guess I'm luckier than I knew! I realized I was lucky that my library has no fine system, but they also get stuff in fast. Sometimes, when I hear of a book, I can go to their website and see that the book is "in processing" and request it, and get it brand new before anyone else.

lotus--that's how it is here, too. The library is behind the times, and the early birds all get the books! I cave in, too!

eva--yes, it looked the same way to me--this last week was a bonanza of interesting books, after a few weeks of zip, zero, bupkis!

2007-07-02T07:25:00.000-07:00

is it just me or was the nyt book review this week ridiculously chockfull of good books? The past few weeks, I've read my e-mail and barely mustered any interest in even one book. Then, this week, I felt like I wanted every book on the list!

My problem with getting new books from the library (especially if they are not authored by well-known bestselling authors) is that I always have to wait so long before the library adds a copy to their collection...most times I cave in and buy the book myself.

Those are some really interesting titles showcased by the NYTimes, I am making a note of them, thanks, Gentle Reader.

jen--clearly, I'm feeling guilty about book-buying now, too. It's nice in LA, but HOT today, not my favorite thing. You'll have to tell me more about the timothy egan book...

oh my gosh -- i want both of these! but i have such a huge stack already here at lopez i feel guilty buyingmore. the depression one in particular -- it goes well with that book i loved by timothy egan, the worst hard time. hope it's nice in LA!

You're right, I need to do that, too. It's hard here in my neighborhood, because my local branch is tiny, and all the good stuff goes really quickly, so you have to put your name on the waiting list...
What I should do is trek to the downtown library, where they have EVERYTHING!



Or! Get them from the library!
