I have my own circulation assistant.

I am a lucky reader. The public library branches in my area are closed by the time I get home from work, but my girlfriend is available to make book runs. And, boy, is that awesome! Not only do I not have to remember due dates, but I have conversations like this:

Her: I'm taking back the second Carey book since you won't finish that series. :P
Me: Yes. It sucked.
Her: Arrow's Fall if they have it. And would you consider a different Lackey series with a coauthor?
Me: Nah; I've been through a bunch, and I've read the ones I wanted to.
Her: k
Me: Anything in the last 2 years from Lackey alone.
Her: k. The new King book, Under the Dome?
Me: Ooh! Okay.

It's like having a librarian Pandora, or Jango. (And now you know my taste in literary popcorn. No shame!)


  1. Hahaha that's wonderful! If only we all could be that lucky.

  2. This is exactly the service I provide for my boyfriend! He loves nonfiction, and is a programmer. The last book I brought home was "Ghosts in the Wires," by Kevin Mitnick. It was a complete hit... the only problem is he finished it in 24 hours, and I only work at the public library once a week!
