I have an absolutely wonderful problem! Strange way to start a post, I know. But here it is. *draws a breath and blurts* All the books I ordered from the library came in at the same time! (Approximately a dozen books.) Half of these books are on a waiting list, so I have three weeks to read them. The other half I can renew. But, man! I have two bags of books I've been drooling over all to myself for 3-6 weeks!
The left-hand pile of books has to go back in three weeks. Those books include Catching Fire, The Scorpio Races, The Night Circus, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and The Forest of Hands and Teeth.
The right-hand pile I can keep longer and renew. Those books include The Insider's Guide to Getting an Agent, Well-Witched, Prophecy of the Sisters, Witches Abroad, and Fly Trap.
(the cat sniffing the books is Squirrel, my little curious tabby)
It's like Christmas! There's at least one Terry Pratchett in there, and Fly Trap is the continued adventures of Miss Mosca Mye and her homicidal goose, Saracen. Not to mention, Well-Witched is another book by Mosca's author Frances Hardinge who I'm really beginning to like.
So, while I'm going to have to read pretty much non-stop (when I'm not working) for three weeks, it's the best problem I've had in a long time! If you could die from too many books, then I would die happy! I walked out of the library, carrying my heavy bags and trying not to grin like an idiot. It was a great rainy-day treat.
What's your library haul this week? Or what books are you reading? Do you have a similar wonderful problem?
