I love libraries. I still can’t believe that they just let you have the books, you know, with no actual collateral and only a vague promise that you will bring them back.
It wasn’t always like this for me. I used to avoid the library because I was so bad at actually bringing back the books that at one point I caught the attention of a local sheriff for my larceny. After that, I resigned myself to just buying what I wanted, which was a super-expensive habit.
But Kindle library borrowing changed all that, and I find myself the current holder of something like thirteen library cards, in five different states.
I know. That’s insane.
But, I saw this monthly recap over at Bookish Beck, and I thought that it would be an interesting exercise.
