Never in my wildest dreams did I think that my library was anything but a very dear friend, stuffed to the gunwales with books to satisfy my every craving. What is more, they have a fantastic request and hold system! So far so good. Over the past week I have been requesting books I see recommended on other avid-readers-book-blogs. Perhaps my requests have overloaded the system? I have 19 on request and 8 of them have been in transit for three days. THREE WHOLE DAYS! Each lunch hour I have been in, but the hold shelf contains no flapping paper with my name on it in bold capitals. Disappointed once again I exit. However I still have 10 beside my bed, unread and each vieing with the other for my attention.
