It's been ages since I have put up a list of all the books I have out from the library at the moment, so when I saw Danielle's list over at A Work in Progress I thought that I might post my list!

  1. Wow, that's a lot of books! I thought I had it bad when I got up to a dozen at a time.

    Happy reading!

  2. You know Marg one of the thinks I admire most about you is how varied and eclectic your reading is. You broaden my narrow horizons.

  3. You have lots of good books checked out! I loved The Welsh Girl--I hope you like it when you get to it. And I really liked the Tasha Alexander, too. I think I have over 30 on my request list. Some are brand new books, so they don't even have them yet, and others I am in a line waiting for them. It's amazing how many they will let you check out at once. We can have 40 books checked out at one time. I think I am somewhere at the 15 book mark right now...

  4. I don't know how many the maximum amount of check outs is, but the maximum number of requests is 20.
