Over the last few weeks, my books lists have gone crazy. First, I discovered that I can request ILL books over the internet at the university library. Then I found that they will deilver said books to my husband's office, and he delivers them to our house. At every other library I've used, ILL is inconvenient, so I haven't used it much. But ILL books delivered right to my home! This is a great system. I have a list right now of 50 books to request, and since I can request anything it is sure to continue growing.
Then MFS at Mental Multivitamin posted a list of biographies. I've been reading M-Mv since she started her blog and I have enjoyed many of her recommendations. I've generally been able to keep up with the ones she recommends that I want to read, but her biography list has slowed me down. By the way, if you haven't been to her site, visit! It's lovely to read.
Then Melissa and Julie started book blogs and I don't have a prayer of keeping up anymore.
What it really comes down to is that I trust the opinions of MFS, Melissa, and Julie. I've enjoyed many of the books Melissa has enjoyed, and I've read several she recommends and liked them very much.
But who can complain? To know that there are so many good books just waiting out there makes me happy.
