So yesterday I went to the library for the first time since I started blogging. I know, I should’ve gone long ago but I haven’t been able to until now. My trip went according to plan.
See that stack on the right? That all came from the library. I almost brought Pulse by Patrick Carman home but I decided that was a book for another trip. I started Sylo already. Very interesting so far. To be honest, I wanted After Hello by Lisa Mangum the most but my library doesn’t have it, which was disappointing. It didn’t have Reboot either, which is too bad since I’ve wanted to read it for months now.
The one I’m most excited about though is Sylo. Hannah at Book Haven Extraordinaire wrote an awesome review and I’ve wanted it ever since. Needless to say, it’s the library book I’ll be reading first.
As for the stack of books on the left, those are all mine or my parent’s. From bottom to top they are, Second Chance Summer, The Demigod Diaries, Scorched ARC, The Fellowship of the Ring, Dracula, and The Ruins of Gorlan. The one in the middle it Plato. In addition to the books you see before you, there are two more behind them, Exemeus and Falling Kingdoms (not sure if I’ll be finishing that one).
Anyway, I went to the library with a focus. I was only going to get books on my to-read list. That basically meant, as long as I recognized the title and wanted to read it (or had heard good things about it) then I was getting it.
But now I’m curious, how do the rest of you pick out library books? Do you only get titles you recognize or do you actually browse the unknown titles. When I go to the library it’s usually with a specific book or goal in mind. I leave the random book browsing for Barnes & Noble.
Let me know what you think!
