I'm going to start this post out by saying I love my library. Love it. The almost always carry the books that I want to read. And if the library that I usually go to doesn't have it, I can reserve it and pick it up there. I'm not going to lie (and this is terrible) I hardly ever buy books anymore. I know, I'm probably the only one. But I buy about one book a month, sometimes with several months in between without buying any.
But, in my defense, I don't have a book store near me. I know, it's terrible. I'm not a big fan of ordering online because I just like going to the store and picking out a book. But I do order books from Amazon and The Book Depository occasionally.
Anyway, that's not the point of this post.
I have too many library books.
It's like an addiction for me. I go about once a week and get at least three or four more to add to my already huge pile. And if I don't get to them before they are due, I just recheck them out. Sometimes five or six times.
So, I'm going to make it a goal to try to reduce that pile. It may never be completely gone, but I want to reduce it tremendously. The reason for this is because I already have so many on my TBR pile that own that I need to read, and I can't get through them if I'm always trying to read library books before they are due.
So, for the next two or three weeks, I'm going to make it a goal to get rid of my huge pile. I think if I only read library books from now on, I can do it.
Here's a list of all of the ones that I have now:
As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott
Beautiful Days by Anna Godbersen
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
The Fox Inheritance by Mary E. Pearson
Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward
Perfect Fifths by Megan McCafferty
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvator
Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
Soul Thief by Jana Oliver
Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep
You Against Me by Jenny Downham
Now, I have some that should be coming in that are reserved, so I'll get those, but other than that, I'm going to try to not check any more out.
And, after I have reduced it, I'm going to take a bit of my TBR pile.
So, on November 13, I'll check back in to see how I'm doing on this.
Let me know, which books should I read first?
