Just a quick little post this morning. I haven't been spending as much time as usual in the blogging world the past few days. We're trying to sell or rent our house. Someone wants to look at the house tonight, so we've been on a mad cleaning spree.
Anyway, what I want to talk about today is a "painful" incident at the library yesterday. I was there to pick up Dark Lover by J.R. Ward from the hold shel (yay!). I made the mistake of going back to the YA section. I was dismayed to see a good dozen books on the shelf that I'm dying to read - including Demonglass, Entwined, Daughter of Xanadu, Mostly Good Grils, The Jumbee, and more.
Normally of course, this would be a cause for cheering and subsequent book gorging. But I'm in the unfortunate/enviable situation of having way too many books sitting at home to be read - specifically, review books that I "need" to read. So I left all those wonderful books on the shelf and trudged home to my bulging bookshelf.
Has anything like this happened to you - where there was an incredible book just begging you to pick it up, but you couldn't?
Also, I'm incredibly fortunate to have a fabulous library just down the street. How is your library's YA collection?
