Library Books

I am reading . . . or should I say WAS reading a really good book--Kathryn Stockett's The Help.  I'm about 275 pages into a 400 page book.  I planned to finish the novel on this upcoming 3-day weekend.  It was due on Tuesday, so Tuesday morning I got online to renew it.
My request was DENIED!  Someone else had requested the book.  It's like watching a good movie on television only for the power to go out fifteen minutes before the ending.  I thought about saying the heck with it and just pay a late fee.  I decided to do the right thing and return it.  I'm now on the wait-list.  Bummer!


  1. That would have made me nuts! You are a better person than me. I would have kept it and paid the fine!

  2. Oh--it was not an easy decision. Not so sure I'd make the same choice if it happens again--ha! ha!
