I saw Flickr has a goup called Reading Stack. This shot I took for my blog, but it seems to fit right in with the stacks. This is my borrowed stack!
The photo captures a momentous occasion: On May 31, I returned my library books on time, on their due date! You have to understand, when I go to the library, I feel like a kid in a candy store. I can’t believe I can borrow all of them for free! So, I tend to check out a lot at a time; just in case some don’t interest me, I can have some waiting in the wings.
Thing is, I am not always so good about returning them on time. I have probably paid a part-timer’s salary with my overdue book fines over the years; even when I worked at the campus library while in school, I had overdues. I’d even have them in my car, people. I’d be tired after a long day and not want to walk clear out to the boonies to my car and lug them clear back to the library. I’d sigh and think, “Ehhhhh, I’ll return them tomorrow”. What’s up with that?
Maybe this is the new adult GW, who turns 40 this year and suddenly returns books when she should!
