MidnightBookGirl I cannot walk into a bookstore without tripping over something and accidentally throwing a stack of books and my debit card at the register. By then I'm too embarrassed to say anything and just have to suck it up and bring the books home with me. 1mo

Finally starting this during lunch today. I loved the first book in the series. I usually like to wait until the series is complete to read, but occasionally I make a worthwhile exception.

I find this series a little aggressively quirky and on a professional level I question the heroine's dedication to patron privacy and library policy. But I still mostly enjoy it.

I am very much feeling the Angela Thirkell right now. Close to finishing the current one, so downloaded the next few, er, or six, in the series.

rretzler 🤣So, I‘m not the only one! Plus having them on the Kindle means you don‘t have to find shelf space for them and you can‘t see them, so you can avoid the guilt! 1mo
quietjenn @rretzler definitely not the only one! And the no shelf space is certainly an advantage! 1mo

I've been doing the #readharder challenge this year, in a sort of half-hearted way. Mostly, it's reinforced my suspicion that reading challenges aren't my thing. Nevertheless, it would be nice to finish and I'm not sure when I would've gotten around to this otherwise.
