Reading Update

Well, I have not been posting because I have not been making much in the way of quilted type stuff, so I was thinking that the summer is going by rather unproductively. I decided to catch you up on my reading and realized what has been taking up most of my time. Here is a list of what I have read since my last post on books (titles in blue are science fiction):

This is probably more books than I have read in the last couple of years. How wonderful it is to rediscover my love of reading.

I found this wonderful service that my library offers. I can go on my computer at home and search their database for books by author, title or subject. Then I can reserve the book. If they have it anywhere in the county library system, I can request it to be available at my local library and it is usually there for me in a couple days. If it is checked out by someone, of course, it takes a little longer.

I think this is the best thing. The library in Florida had the same type of database, but I never got it to work with my library card number so all I could do was see where the book was and go to that library to get it.  I have two books waiting for me right now that I am going to pick up today.
