My Reading Pile

So, I am getting to the point where I simply cannot afford to buy all the books I want to anymore. Sad I know! I think I tend to stop buying myself stuff around this time of year in hopes that I will get it for Christmas if it is something that I really want. But there are still lots on my reading list. Here are the books I have on reserve at the library (I'm just waiting for that grand e-mail that says one of them is waiting for me!)

AS YOU WISH by Jackson Pearce (number one on the waiting list now!)
DREAMING ANASTASIA by Joy Preble (number 7)
GIVE UP THE GHOST by Megan Crewe (number 6)
ONCE A WITCH by Carolyn MacCullough (number 15! Oye!)

I love that I can reserve books online at my library and just go pick them up when I want to. Usually if I have something on hold it leads me to browsing the racks of CDs or DVDs and new releases as well. I love my library! It allows me to read so much more than I can afford to buy, and in the end if I read something I love, I go buy it eventually anyway!

I love the library, too. I would love to support authors by buying every book I read, but I'm just not financially able to do that. Though I still do buy quite a few books a year, and today I am taking my five year old to the library!

One of my favorite memories growing up was participating in summer reading programs at our local library! They were awesome and my mom avidly had us participate every year. I truly owe her so much for my love of books and reading.

That's all I do now! And then I have the extra bonus of having a MIL who works at the library to bring them to me!! :)

If I start a book that I really like and want to buy, most of the time I'll stop reading the library's copy and just go buy it for myself.
