Bookstore v Library, Part II

The nearest branch of library here is tiny, and it almost has more computers than books. The local Barnes and Noble has a lot more books than the library does. This would usually be unforgiveable, but the city library system is wonderful. So now when we go to the library, we just go in, pick up our stack of holds, check them out ourselves, and head back home.

Then we walk to Barnes and Noble to sit and read and to the library thing.

I'm just getting the hang of this, so I only picked up a few today:

The Forsaken People: Case Studies of the Internally Displaced

La Paella: Deliciously Authentic Rice Dishes from Spain's Mediterranean Coast
Expat: Women's True Tales of Life Abroad
Samarkand: A Novel
