There are so many great releases this fall that I had trouble picking just ten! I will say that I have never been so glad in all my days to have thirteen library cards. See, most libraries don’t add new books to their inventory till just before the release date, and I’ve never seen them announce it ahead of time, so you are really stuck checking and checking and checking, and then finding yourself 73rd on the hold list. There is kind of a way around this, and that is that you can request that the library purchase the book as soon as you hear about it, and then once they do puchase it, you are automagically added to the hold list, before the book goes live in their system.
The only trixie bit is that you can only make three purchase requests per week…but that’s three per week PER LIBRARY. So, thirteen library cards…39 requests per week. I know. I KNOW.
So, anyway, here are ten books that I requested from four different libraries in the last couple weeks.
