Happy weekend all and welcome to a brand-new combined Library Haul for Library #2 and #3!
That is right, two libraries again in one. It was almost time again and since today was all free I decided today was perfect.
First up Library #2! Sadly, no reservations this time… and I am still waiting for 4 Sinterklaas/Christmas books which I reserved in… November.. Yay. Almost tempted to just remove them.. but I want to read them. Argh. So a bit of a conundrum here. So today I just wandered around looking for older books to read and I did manage to find quite a few of them. Including some more travel guides. I am totally in the mood for those, free travelling (well, free-ish given that the library costs money each year, but it is cheaper than going to the countries 😝), discovering new places to add to my growing list of places I want to visit.
I also got a bunch of picture books I haven’t read yet and they all sound super adorable so I can’t wait to read them!
Next up Library #3, well… it took us about an hour plus to get there as apparently a big road was closed off and everyone used the one road we decided to use. Normally it is about 20 minutes by car just to give a comparison on how long it took today.
I found one new book (or is it a magazine?) at the new releases tables, sadly nothing at the children’s book but I did find at least one book there that I had plans to read for some time now. I decided to just raid the comics/graphic novel department again! I found a few fun new comics to try and two interesting looking graphic novels.
While I had hoped for more books, I didn’t even reach the limit for Library #3 which is 12, I am still very happy with what I got. Now what to read first? Mmmm. 🤔
I just need to find a cover for that De Bijen (The Bees) book because I am NOT a fan of seeing a bee so close up. I know the book is flipped over when I read it, but still shivers.
Stats: 19 books (10 at Library #2, 9 at Library #3). 5 non-fiction, 7 comic/GN, 5 picture books, 2 fiction.
NOTE: Quite a few of these aren’t on Goodreads, will add them when I read and if I don’t forget add the links here.
