Shannon at Rivercity Reading is doing a little Library Checkout link-up thingy and since I can’t seem to stop myself from going to the library and picking up more books, I thought I might as well put my book insatiability to work!
Library Books Read
White Teeth by Zadie Smith
Shanghai Girls by Lisa See
So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson
The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh
Checked Out, To Be Read
Girl at War by Sara Novic
Friends, Lovers, Chocolate by Alexander McCall Smith
The Woman Who Stole My Life
(I realize we’ve covered this before)
Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova
A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler
Nothing anymore – I went to pick up The Weight of Blood and came home with two more! It’s looking like I’m going to have to quit my job or something just so I can actually read all these books in this lifetime.
Care to join us?

I’m so impressed that you cleared out your hold list! A Spool of Blue Thread is one I’ve been going back and forth over – I think I’ve had my finger hovered over the hold button more than once, but just haven’t made the leap.
I actually don’t place holds very often! I haven’t graduated to that library level yet. I still just kind of go in and peruse and choose what strikes my fancy on any given day. I tend to only hold books that I NEED to read – for a challenge or book club.
I’m impressed that you didn’t have to return any unread! I hate to do it, but sometimes it just has to be done.
Inside the O’Briens is a book that I had out a couple of months ago, but had to return unread. I’ll definitely be getting that one out again. I’ve seen a couple of good reviews just in the last few days.
Occasionally I renew the books so I have time to read them. But often, I feel bad about doing that because other people might be waiting for them!
I’m really looking forward to reading Inside the O’Briens!
Oh, so many of the books on your list are also on my TBR list! And I am so with you on quitting the job and just reading/writing!! Yes! Now…who will support us? That’s the only drawback I can see and I have yet to be able to answer it! 🙂 I love Alexander McCall Smith, except the Portuguese dog (or whatever) series. That one was way too dry for me! 🙂
There must be a way! I always hope that a lottery win is in my future.
There’s a Portuguese dog series of his?? I’m going to have to look into this!
Good list! I need my holds to start moving so I can request Girl at War!
I still need to read that one!
I actually told my husband he needs to keep searching for that big paying dream job, cause as soon as he finds it, I’m taking a sabbatical for no other reason than to read like a maniac for a year!
