Library Checkout: May 2016

library checkout

Oh, hello. Hey there. I guess it’s almost the end of May, huh? So…about those library books. I didn’t read any this month. What’s that? You’re wondering if I just stopped using my library? Oh, well…no. No, I keep putting things on hold and then not reading them because I’m a horrible, impulsive person. And then there’s that whole trip to BEA, which saddled me with enough books to last through the rest of the year. But I still want to hear what you’ve been reading and holding! Maybe it will encourage me to do better.
