library card goodness

Now that I am not in public education I needed access to free books again. 🙂 I set foot in a library today for the first time in maybe a decade? Possibly longer. Most of the books I’d like to read are checked out, but I decided I could use a lesson in patience. Just like the good old days, right?

The Serpent King yanked me from my reading rut, and now I want to read all of the things! I finished City of Bones [Book 1 of the Immortal Instruments series] within a week after it sat on my nightstand for a year or so! And of course I chose to read it when Shadowhunters [based on the Immortan Instruments novels] came out on FreeForm [formerly ABC Family]. Bad timing on my part, because the books are back in high demand. BUT I put myself on the waitlist with my fancy library card e-ID. cough-grandma-cough  I almost checked out the final book in the trilogy just so I wouldn’t have to wait for it, but that’s just cruel.

Instead, I looked for a recommendation from a friend, The Testing. Another friend seconded the rec, so I feel pretty confident. Plus it’s part of a trilogy! Maybe I’ll be back in the library in just a few days. 🙂

I’ve been trying to make an effort to stay off technology, which is also why I have been reading a lot more. These headaches make staring at a screen quite painful. Plus it’s probably just healthy.

Do you still use your library card? What are you currently reading?




  1. I love going to the library! I’m currently reading sci-fi a book called “Dissemblance.” I got it in exchange for a review and love it! Your dog is so cute 🙂

    • Cool! I’ll have to look into it. I think I have found a new old love, this library business. 🙂

  2. I need to use my library card more often! I live in a really small town and the library doesn’t have the best/newest selection. However now I work in St. Louis and am eligible to get a library card in the city. I think I’ll have to get one and use it! Right now I’m reading I Feel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts on Being a Woman by Nora Ephron and I LOVE it. Laugh out loud funny and definitely relatable.

    • Yes! I got one in my parents’ neighborhood and could totally get one for my neighborhood. Sounds like a fun book! That I can check out! ??

  3. Whoa, we’re totally on the same wavelength here. I was just about to get a new library card and start hitting the Heights Neighborhood Library up. With all the books I’m reading lately it just seems better, economically. 🙂

    • Yes! Exactly. I already checked out three bc the ones I put on hold became available! Hoping to finish one and return it soon so’s not to hog them! ?
