For my birthday this year, I got myself twenty books... from the library.
I sat down with my ridiculously long list of Books To Read and starting requesting them from my local library. (Most of them were recommendations from Forever Young Adult.) I was really hoping that they'd come in a bit more spread out than they did... Within three days I had this pile sitting on my kitchen table:
Since I catch public transport to and from work every day now, I am getting through the pile at a pretty good rate. Still a few to go, but books are still trickling in - I have at least one waiting for me at the library right now.
I highly recommend this as a birthday present.
