Sometimes the waiting list is very long...
I am still waiting for an e-book, but been so long, I gave up.
last book read. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.
Absolutely! Libraries are great. And so are the librarians. My local librarian will suggest other authors/books based on what she sees you checking out.
That's why I usually have my request list full - I never know how long it will take for a book to be available, though I can guess from how many "holds" are ahead of me.
1 time I had 9 books come in all at once! Some I'd been waiting for months. The librarian gave me a canvas Friends of the Library bag to carry them in, it was such a big pile!
Of course, with ebooks, you don't have to drive to the library & lug them home. ;-)
I have just started reading Sarah Knight's :The life changing magic of not giving a fuck in french
I love reading, also. I could not even begin to list the authors I like. There are way too many, including many on all of your lists.
But, some favorites I'd like to share: J. D. Robb. (Nora Roberts pen name for her sci fi police procedural romance. Yeah, those are all the genres they fit into.) If you like cozy mysteries, Ellery Adams is both prolific and an awesome writer.
I love Carole Nelson Douglas, especially her Midnight Louie cat mystery series, which she finished a little while ago. I have a few more to acquire, then I'm reading them from beginning to end. She did an amazing thing in that she did the alphabet and each book is an individual story, but there's also an overarching story that starts in the first book and doesn't end until the last one. G. R. R. Martin could learn a lot from her about holding onto the thread of a long story arc.
I forgot I wanted to mention BookBub ( https://www.bookbub.com/welcome ) You can get free or really cheap ebooks from them. I've found a lot of books I'm glad I didn't pay for. But I've also found some favorite new authors.
I could go on about books all day, but I won't.
Have fun stormin' the castle!
Bookbub is great! I just have to be careful and not buy too many. Right now I have 72 books waiting to be read on my Kindle. Seems like every time I finish a few and seem to making headway, I find something on Bookbub and buy it. Of course, I also have over 50 on my Bookbub "Wanted" list that I'm watching to be on sale.
At the moment I am reading Ken Follett's "Turn of the Century" trilogy.
I have four Goodwills near me. Paperbacks are $1.00, Hardbacks $3.00 and Children/Young Adult are 50 cent.
So I have been spending 50 cents for hardback Harry Potter books.
But I generally keep books I grew up with and re-read them over and over. (Baum, Dickens, Lewis Carroll, C S Lewis, Tolkien, Heinlein, McCaffrey and Agatha Christie)
And history books.
Looks like I will have to get a kindle, I moved states with 22 IKEA bookcases with extra shelves, built a special room for them, have many more books packed in plastic storage crates in the shed. Must go through and see what I really want to keep and start listing them on ebay. My son says since I couldn't train to be a librarian, I bought my own library.
At least with a kindle, the storage problem would be solved.
