Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!I have a confession to make. I am a bit addicted to my local library and I am way to quick on the request button! You may have noticed. It is getting to the stage where my library pile is getting a bit out of control again, so it is time to gain some control back. Or at least, it will be from now on for the month of July.
Back in April, I put some restrictions on my borrowing in that I wasn't allowed to request any new books with one proviso. I could request a book only if it was the next book in the series that I am reading. No starting new series, no stand alones, no new releases that I must have right now!
I think I am going to have to put these same restrictions in place now. Of course, if I wanted to be really ruthless, I would return a whole heap of the books that are currently sitting on my library shelves and start from scratch, but I don't think I can bring myself to do that. It might be step 2 in my intervention program.
Having said that, I only got one book out from the library this week, but will be posting about 8 books next week once I pick them up. After that it should calm down a little bit again.
