Musing Monday is hosted by Becca of Just One More Page. Pop over and read lots of interesting comments & post your own.
Today, busy-borrowing Becca asks about library borrowing habits…
Do you restrict yourself on how many books you take out from the library at a time? Do you borrow books if you already have some out? Do you always re-borrow books you don’t get to?
I’m hopeless library borrower. I love libraries & have spent most of my working life in them, which is helpful when you’re also a hopeless returner. Working in libraries allows certain advantages; seeing all the new books come across the desk (& into my carry-bag), seeing interesting books returned (& into my carry bag), scanning the spines whilst shelving and finding many interesting reads that find their way into my carry-bag…you get the idea.
AND being able to renew all said carry-bag books without incurring fines is very helpful for a slow reader.
I find when I’m not working in one (as I am right now) I don’t borrow from libraries much because I hate the due-date pressure. I read so slowly (am amazed by bloggy friends who read multiple books in a week) and mount TBR is so huge – I have plenty to be getting on with without a visit to the library.
That’s not to say I don’t miss the library like an amputee…
