Library Card! and What I'm Reading Now

Guess what? I am now in possession of my very own library card! I haven't had one since moving to Illinois [unless you count my college ID, but we're talking reading for pleasure here, so it doesn't count.] So technically, this is the first library card I've had since I was in high school.

I know, I know. You're thinking, Bethany "bookish" girl didn't have a library card? What's up with that? But the truth is, I've had this really bad habit, like all book addicts do, of buying most of the books that I wanted to read. [Tell me I'm not the only one that does this!] And then I realized I was broke. I'm sick of borrowing books or just going through dry spells of not reading, so I am now the proud owner of a library card, and I checked out The History of Love by Nicole Krauss. 

Ever read it? Seems like everyone is raving about it right now. I'm 50 pages in [since starting last night!] and I understand why!

So what are you reading? And do you have a library card or do you buy or borrow all of your books?

Gotta love the library... This could be a good pick for my book club!

I have a feeling it would be a GREAT pick for your book club. The writing is incredible, and very diverse. You'll see what I mean when you read it. I'm totally blown away.

I love the library and always have. I get most of my reading material there. I will have to see if I can check out "The History of Love". :)

So funny you mentioned your habit of just buying all the books you want to read. My SIL (teacher/ writer/book addict) is the same way - never leaves a bookstore empty handed. : )
