This happens every now and then: books on hold at the library all pop up at once. Right now, between the two of us, we have seven library books in the house, a couple of them fat ones, all of them screaming “READ ME NOW, I HAVE A DUE DATE!”
Some are books I put on hold months ago, and was two hundred and something out of two hundred and something on the wait list. Others I put a hold on two weeks ago. When I stack up a dozen holds and there’s no telling when the books will be available, they can sure tumble together and suddenly I have a bunch of things all at once. That’s when I feel a lot of pressure to drop everything and get them read, especially those that can’t be renewed.
