So I went to Library #4. Due to me still being a bit sick, I asked my boyfriend to come with me (he can drive and Library #4 is quite a bit away). Why I am going to the library when I am sick? Well, a bit of a long story. I had a book that I had to get back, it was a Sprinter book apparently. For some reason Library #4 has the same stickers for both New and Sprinter books. Orange, triangle/roundish stickers. Same size even. The words are different, but my mind apparently skipped over that when I spotted the book. Sprinter books mean that a book has to come back in 1 week. However, I didn’t spot that sticker a few days before my vacation in August. Then right when I got back from my vacation I got really sick, and I am still recovering from that. I got several notifications that they want the book back (duh), and about 1 and a half week ago they sent a letter that the book had to come back in 2 weeks or else I would have to pay a lot of money. So I kindly asked my boyfriend if he would mind driving me all the way to Library #4. He didn’t mind, yay!
I did learn to look even closer to the library books at Library #4. Though of course I do wonder how many others also made the mistake. And why they think it is such a good idea to have the same stickers for stuff. I also wonder why the lady at the desk didn’t say anything back when I borrowed the books (since there was some trouble) back then. I clearly talked about my vacation and how I was going to enjoy these books. 🙁 Oh well, the book is back now and that is what counts the most.
Now for happier stuff, I found 10 lovely new books to enjoy and read! Mostly English, which is a big yay! They also had several newer books which made me happy, as I didn’t expect them here at the library. I am really excited about that Whisper to Me, the Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Zout van de Zee, as I heard a lot about those books.
Here are my new precious books!
