literary serendipity

i went to the dc public library this evening.
the northeast branch is open until 9pm a couple of days a week
which is awesome.

one of the things i love about the library here,
is that i can place online holds for books i want to read.
i usually request five to ten books at a time
and get email notifications when one is ready for me to pickup.
and they never show up all at the same time.

literary serendipity
in that all - yes all -
of the books i placed on hold with
the dc public library last week
showed up all at the same time.
when does this ever happen?

seems the goddess of the library
knows that i suddenly
have lots of free time
to sit.
listen to music.
drink herb tea.
read some more.

here's my reading list for the next three weeks:

Cold Sassy Tree
(they made an opera out of this one)
Cutting for Stone
(recommended by a friend)
Twenties Girl
(recommended by another friend)
My Latest Grievance
(this month's pick for book group)
An Amish Gathering
(i don't remember why this interested me)
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand
(july's book group pick, which i was too busy to read)
Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict
(i am a jane austen addict)
The Illustrated Lark Rise to Candleford
(i love the bbc series)

i gots lots and lots of reading to do. yay!
