Library Visit

My library visit this weekend was a bit of a bust. I went to pick up a hold and was thinking I’d browse the new book shelves but I saw that the new books shelves were reduced to a small section. It seems that the “holds” section has overpowered the new books. What?

When I went to check out I asked the librarian and she must have been having a bad day because all she said was, “I guess all the new books are checked out.” I wanted to point out that no, they just moved the new books to another much smaller area. Oh well, it’s not like I need to browse new books at the library as I have so many books to be read but it was just a bit of a bummer to see that and to get that response. Maybe I’ll just find another library to go visit as I do have a couple of other branches somewhat near me.

So all I got was my hold, The Temptation of Forgiveness by Donna Leon. I wonโ€™t be making it to my September book group meeting but this is the book weโ€™re discussing in October. I figure I might as well as get it now and be ready. Iโ€™ve read several of the Commissario Brunetti books and really like the main character so Iโ€™m looking forward to seeing what case the Commissario will be involved with in this installment.

I noticed there’s a wonderful map on the end papers (what’s up with the library sticker though?) but I also was surprised to read that this is the 27th installment. Yikes. The last book I read in this series was #5 so I guess I’m way behind. Now I really wonder what’s in store for me when I read this book.

Anyway, hope you all had a great weekend! Let me know if you’ve picked up anything at the library recently.
