These are some of the physical books for which I also currently have audiobooks checked out from the library... which to pick first for my next #ImmersionReading experience? 🤔

Megabooks Of the three I‘ve read, this is my fav 2y
TracyReadsBooks We Keep the Dead Close is very good. 2y
janeycanuck I Was Told It Would Get Easier is quick and fun. 2y
BookishMarginalia @Megabooks @TracyReadsBooks @janeycanuck I decided to go with Keep the Dead Close mostly because it‘s due the soonest #LibraryProblems 2y

When you go to the library and all the books you prepicked are humongous.

Thanks for the add @Manal22

vivastory All 3 of these are at the top of my TBR. You have some great reading ahead! 3y
Leniverse Illuminae is a fairly quick read though. It looks big due to the creative formatting. Some pages only have a few words of text. 3y
emz711 @Leniverse excited to try something similar to S. 3y

OnlyYoo I finished Name of the Wind in one day because I was just so engrossed in it! The hardest part is waiting for the last book of the trilogy. I‘ve been waiting 6 years now... 3y
emz711 @OnlyYoo oh no! I didn't know 3y
emz711 @Leniverse good to know, it'll be my next one! 3y
emz711 @OnlyYoo loving it 3y
OnlyYoo It‘s an amazing series 👍 3y

I only have 8 days left with this beauty, so I‘m going to have to try and get back on the waiting list (and wait another 6 months to continue reading it) or buy a copy as soon as humanly possible. This book is amazingly good, but wow it‘s packed with info. I feel like I could read it more like a historian if I had a physical copy (which is even harder to get my hands on).

Detroit‘s Mark Twain library, which was closed in 1996 for renovations and never reopened. Just look at all of the forgotten volumes. It‘s tragic. I want to go in and find them all new, loving homes. The poor dears.

kmshaffer Wow! 4y
GingerAntics @kmshaffer right? You‘d think even if you weren‘t going to reopen the library, you‘d give the books to other libraries that were open, but apparently not. Just imagine what has been lost, because the books were just left to slowly decay. That pile of books makes me sad, and not just because the pages are getting ruined. 4y
AlaSkaat Treasures lost at sea. They should have packed those books, if they didn't need them, and sent them to poor countries where Libraries and books are needed. Such a waste!! 4y

julesG I can't believe it. 😢 4y
JazzFeathers I can't believe it. What's the sense of it? If you don't mean to reopen the library, donate the books to who will enjoy them. It's heartbreaking. It's madness. 4y
Bklover Noooooo!!!😢 4y
kmshaffer No kidding! I‘m sure many libraries would love to have these lost treasures! Makes me sad too 😢 4y
Weaponxgirl That‘s awful! Why waste so much in general, let alone books! 4y
Tamra How horrible. 4y
Crazeedi What a tragic photo! Makes my heart hurt 4y
GingerAntics @OleAnder @julesG @JazzFeathers @Bklover @kmshaffer @Weaponxgirl @Tamra @Crazeedi if nothing else, let book lovers come take them. They‘ll give them good homes or take them to libraries in their communities. Mark Twain must be rolling over in his grave. It‘s so sad. I guess this is just more proof that America does not care about knowing things, just having things. Well, most of America. (edited) 4y
AlaSkaat Books are sooo undervalued 😕 4y
ravenlee We need some book ninjas to liberate these poor orphans. 4y

Things I have to request again because I couldn't get to them before the due date. #libraryproblems 😏

Buechersuechtling I know exactly what you mean. 😂 If I foresee that I won‘t manage to read all the books I took home, I secretly sneak into my library‘s user account to put them on hold for me, so that I immediately can take them with me again. 😇 4y
readinginthedark This is me with 95% of the library books I bring home! 😅 4y

Hey guys, no #friyayintro this week. I just got back from Disneyland and I‘m still in post-vacay catch-up mode, I don‘t think I have time to check out all the posts like I usually try to!

But, I just finally finished this awesome book (did not really have reading time in CA as I‘d hoped to), and now I can take my kindle off airplane mode, and download something new! 🙂 #libraryproblems #jesshowreads2018

tournevis 😘😘😘 4y
Bklover Hope you had a great time! I just stopped by to check and make sure you were ok when I didn‘t see the Friyay thing! 4y

Cathythoughts These look great. I also have Less , yet to read it though 5y
akckitty The snow child is a good read. Every time I tell myself I‘ll have self restraint in the library I fail lol 5y

I just had a thought...
What if I put ALLLLL the books on my TBR on hold with the library?

I figured if anyone could appreciate this idea, it would be my Littens 🤣

Andrew65 😂😂😂 5y
Ashley_Nicoletto They would all come in at one time. 😂😂😂 #libraryproblems 5y
Amie That's totally something I would do ... if they let me. My tbr far exceeds the reserve limit at my library 😁 5y

rubyslippersreads You'd probably crash their computer system! 😂 5y
Bookzombie @amie Mine does too! I think for physical items the limit is 25. I would have to do it in cycles. Lol 5y
Sweettartlaura @amie @Bookzombie yes... but they WOULDN‘T all come in at once. There would be other holds, or inter-library loans, & I would be returning a couple a week too... Hmmm... maybe this is further incentive to clear the TBR next to my bed & try it 😏 5y
Sweettartlaura @rubyslippersreads I wonder... I REALLY wanna do it now 😜 5y
Sweettartlaura @Ashley_Nicoletto THAT would be crazy!!! 🤣 5y
Wife My library hold limit is 50 titles. I have 50 and am Number 1 on almost all. I just use the “suspend” function to let them trickle in as I need them. I mark my calendar each month to bump out the suspension date by one month. 5y
Sweettartlaura @wife 😮😮😮. You‘re a library rock star 🤟🏻🤟🏻 5y
Wife 🤣🤣🤣Thanks. I‘m pretty proud of my “system”. 5y
LauraBeth Do it! 😂 I need to be like @wife and be better about suspending/pausing holds! 5y
Sweettartlaura @LauraBeth I just might🤔. I have to eliminate my physical TBR ... which takes up a small bookcase... and then some. So it might be 2019‘s project. It could be fun... 5y
