holds, oh holds, how i hate you

A few reasons my list didn’t work:

  • Holds kept coming available that I wanted to read more than the books on that list.
  • Some of the books on that list I realized I didn’t actually want to read or re-read.
  • Holds kept coming available that I wanted to read more than the books on the list.
  • I’m impatient.

Now I have nearly all my impatient holds, so I’m going to try and have my list again. We’ll see how it goes.

I also just picked up a copy of 1001 Books to Read Before You Die and I’m hoping to knock one of those out a month… at least one of the 20th and 21st century ones, anyways… any older than that and you’ll see a post from a close relative saying “sorry everyone, emilybrary’s died of boredom.”  (Yeah, I’m that cynical about old literature.  I just can’t do it.  I never have been able to, which is why I probably haven’t read anywhere near as many books in that book as I should.  I just put it and the children’s version on my Amazon wishlist though, if you know me & like buying me presents.)
