Musing Monday (Jan 5)

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about library books…

Do you have a system for borrowing out books from the library? Do you know what you're going to borrow before you get there? How often do you borrow out books?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.




I usually go to the library once a fortnight, usually on a Sunday morning - thought lately my sister's been coming with me, so we've been going at random times. It makes a nice change to be going in with someone else, as my sister reads different books than I do. This is the reason I've been reading so many YA novels this year; we've been working our way through the collection.


When I do go, I usually have a book or two in mind that I'm looking for, and I always have a list on books I want to borrow out (ones I KNOW the library has) on my phone in case I need it. But for the most part I just browse for a while and pick up whatever grabs my eye. Now that I go to the library so regularly it makes it much easier to pick up novels I wouldn't normally read. Of course, it also means that I come home with a huge stack :)
