I’m so terrible at following my own rules. You know, last month‘s rule that I should stop putting books on hold and add them to a wishlist instead? That didn’t happen. Not at all. I got all hyped on the upcoming Nonfiction November event and went wild, just throwing everything I might want to read on my holds list…but now I have so many choices!
