I love the library. I really do. It's nice to be able to get books for free so you can read them and judge them and purchase them later if you like them enough. I would be nowhere without the library. I definitely wouldn't have enough money to satisfy my reading obsession if it wasn't there. There is one downside though, and that is that it is just so hard to choose books! I went there today and I ended up taking out five more books than I had on hold which is bad. It means that I will be that much more rushed to get them all read and returned before the due date. Everytime I browse the shelves, I see a bajillion books that catch my eye and it's so hard to limit myself! How can I stand to take just a few? But then I have to hit myself on the head and say; can you really read that many books in a two week period? And the answer would be...well, no. But nonetheless, I still end up taking out many books more than I could possibly read. Ugh. I guess I'll just have to read faster. But that too is also getting harder as the pressure of the school year ending draws upon us. So as I'm taking more and more books out of the library, there is less and less time to actually read them. It's quite sad. Wish me luck as I try to gobble a pile of books up to beat the due date and the heavy fines. Eek!
