Library Checkout: September 2015

library checkout

Welcome to the first Library Checkout, which will cover the month of September. Of course, we’re starting with a month that pretty much destroyed me in terms of reading, and I ended up returning over half of what I checked out this month unread. I also just had three new books come in at the same time, when I still have a few checked out to read and several ARCs I’d like to get to. I think I need to get better at marking things “Wishlist” instead of “Hold”, no? I suppose the good news is, most of the books I did read this month came from the library, so…thanks for saving the day.
