Reading List

I'd be happy if I even get through half of these.

Beatrice and Virgil by Yann Martel (gift)
The Poisoner's Handbook by Deborah Blum (from library)
Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks (from library)
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris (e-book)
When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris (borrowed)
Female Chauvinist Pigs by Ariel Levy (borrowed)
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne (free for kindle)
and more!

The public library is so amazing! They have the newest books, videos, and music as well as e-books and audio books you can borrow through their website. I feel like a kid in a candy store. Alas, there is a borrowing limit and I have a carrying capacity. My arms are a bit sore today. The Queens library implemented a new checkout system which utilizes RFIDs in the books and a scanner at each counter. All it takes it 3 motions: flash library card, put stack of books on counter all together, pick up stack of books. It's wonderful and so much faster than their old system of barcodes. I was thoroughly amused and loving the library even more. The downside to the public library is BABIES and people screaming on their cellphone. Oh, sometimes I feel like I have to wear gloves to read their books so I don't catch anything. Some library patrons are not the cleanest people. =x
