BOOKS REMAINING: 48
CURRENT BOOK: None
Now that I have finished the third book on the list, I am still waiting for the second book which I have on hold for approximately another twelve days. I moved onto the fourth book, Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl. Eagerly, I pulled up the library web site. My options were to check out the audiobook (which I wasn’t interested in, I’m READING these books, not LISTENING to them) or to put a hold on the hard copy (which I do not want to do while I already have a hold on another book).
So I moved onto the fifth book, Bad Feminist. Really? Another feminist rant? Even though Ain’t I a Woman came in at under 200 pages, I was not ready for another 320 more. Still, out of perhaps a misplaced sense of obligation, I checked availability at the library. There was a hard copy. But…it was checked out! Due May 11, 2016.
I had no choice, then, but to move on to the sixth book, The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver. Which was available. Somehow I remember my mother reading all of Kingsolver’s books while I was in high school. And it’s a bestseller more like I usually read. Can’t be all bad, right?
