My plan WAS to finish up a couple of library books, then read short stories for the rest of the month, finishing up some several collections and getting started on some others.
Well… I did finish reading one of the library books, and am part way through the second one. Then yesterday two more library books came off my hold list and are ready for pickup. Plus I’m at the front of the line on three more, so those are about to pop from hold list to ready for pickup.
Yep, five, count ’em, five more library books in hand or about to be. Since it is my policy to read library books before anything else – that deadline, don’t you know – it looks like it will be a while before I get to those short stories. * Sigh *
