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 won’t be making it to my September book group meeting but this is the book we’re discussing in October. I figure I might as well as get it now and be ready. I’ve read several of the Commissario Brunetti books and really like the main character so I’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.
