So Many Books, So Little Time…
As a librarian, it may come as no surprise that I love books. It should also come as no surprise that I have access to a lot of them. Awesome, right? Riiiiigghhht. Except sometimes, my eyes are bigger than…well… my eyes, and my nightstand winds up looking like the stack in this picture.
Last week, for example, I had no fewer than six (6!) books piled high next to my bed, waiting to be read. I would love to tell you about the evenings I spent curled up devouring them all, but alas, that was not the case. You see, I am a very slow reader. This is not aided by the fact that by the time I get to read my book, I am usually half asleep. So what’s a girl to do?
Fortunately for all of us who have a Maplewood Library card, all is not lost. By creating an account with your library card barcode, you can not only keep a reading history, receive email notifications of new titles as they become available, place holds, and(drum roll, please) keep a reading list of all those books you’ve wanted to read but just haven’t gotten to yet.
