A month or so I took a big step, and cut down the number of books that I have out from the library from more than 50 books to just over 30. I am doing quite well at keeping the total down to a managable level, although I am have borrowed quite a few books this week. I have taken quite a lot back as well though!
The interesting consequence of having less books out is that I am able to read more of the books I already own, or I don't have to worry so much about the due date if I do choose to read a library book. Now this sounds like a good thing right? In actual fact, it is problematic. Last night I changed my mind about 6 times about which book I was going to read next, and it took about half an hour to finally decide! I never had to worry about that problem as much before.
So these are the books that I have checked out from the library in the last week:
Mutiny on the Bounty by John Boyne - I know that there are lots of blog posts about John Boyne's other book, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, but I don't recall seeing anything about this book any where.
Before They Are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie - I read the first book in this series a while ago. It's time to read the second book I think!
Wife for Hire by Janet Evanovich - I enjoy these rereleased romances. They are very silly, but good fun and quick reads.
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - I think I will read this as part of the Book Awards Reading Challenge.
The Low Road by Chris Womersley - This is the April book for a group that I have recently joined which focuses on crime novels.
Imitation in Death by J D Robb - Next book in this great series!
