Last night, I had time to kill before my bus home, so I popped into the library for a spell. I had just finished a book over the weekend, and it so underwhelmed me that I needed a pick-me-up.
Little known fact: This book was originally titled The Book of Crap and Stupidness, but the publisher wasn't sure it would sell.
I was hoping to borrow The Hunger Games, but discovered that it had thirty-three people on the waiting list. Damn you, popular book! I wandered around a bit and picked up Fool by Christopher Moore and The Gates by John Connolly.
I love Moore, so that was a no-brainer, and I finished one of Connolly's books a few weeks ago, and it was fantastic (OMG so fantastic!). I grabbed The Gates and made good on my self-imposed rule to borrow more books this year. (Bookstore gift cards do not count, however. Especially ones that expire at the end of this month...)
My impatience is a bit of problem. I have a feeling that I am going to end up buying The Hunger Games, even though I could easily wait. And wait (thirty-three people?!??!). I mean, I have a ton of books on my shelves that I haven't even touched.
Maybe buying books should be what I give up for Lent this year!
