I stopped by the library this past weekend to pick up five holds. Oh why did they all come in at once? Unfortunately I also had to return some library books without even starting them and I had to return back my audiobook. Darn, my first DNF of the year and it wasn’t because I wasn’t liking it but because our weather hasn’t been that great to enjoy my outdoor walks which is when I listen to audiobooks. Oh well, I’ll have to try to check it out another time.
Anyway, let’s talk about the holds. Aside from Ghost Medicine by Aime Thurlo and The Gone Dead Train by Lisa Turner which are for my mystery book group, my other holds are graphic novels. Last year I only read one and I must be making up for it this year.
First up is The Chill by Jason Starr. This is billed as a mystery novel so I’ve never read a mystery graphic novel and thought I needed to try one out. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Then I also picked up An Age of License by Lucy Knisley. I’ve greatly enjoyed her other two books French Milk and Relish so I was excited to see the library had this one.
And, finally the book I’m most excited about is Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor by Lynda Barry. I haven’t taken a peek in this yet because I want to savor it over the weekend when I have more time but just the book itself looks wonderful. It looks like a composition book which is perfect as this book came about from her preparation for a class she taught on creativity. Oh how I would love to take that class. I’ve read several of her books and have enjoyed them so much for their creativity, freedom, and passion. I can’t wait to read this one.
How about you? What have you checked out from the library?
