An anecdote. Some of you may be familiar with it

I went home to visit my family this past weekend.

I thought I would be safe with three books.

No. Not at all. I'd zoomed through all three (BART helps) by Saturday morning. The only thing left to do was go to the library and get more...

I managed to limit myself to five... But that means that on the way back, I was carrying eight books. Erm.

This is the part where having a Kindle would come in handy. Oh, wait! I do have a Kindle. It's just that I'm adverse to actually purchasing books to put on there, when you can get books for free from the library!

Anyway, to make a short story shorter, my shoulder is now aching slightly. Looks like I still haven't gotten over book hauler syndrome...

PS: Across the Universe, by Beth Revis. Pretty good read.


  1. Have you checked Overdrive (http://www.overdrive.com/)? I was surprised by how many libraries near me use it.

  2. I think you can use the library. You have a time limit as you would with printed books.

  3. I'm not sure where you are (I think BART maybe Bay Area Rapid Transit). Here's a post I did on the Dallas Library.
