Hello, I’m Caidyn and I’m addicted to the library

I don’t know about y’all, but I love the library.

It really helps that my mom’s a librarian so I can get her help or ask for her to do something for me, but I fucking love the library.

But, lately, I have a crazy amount of books out. I think this is because I have bad book impulse control, so I put holds on new releases that interest me so I can at least leaf through them.

Yet, all of them seem to be published or start getting to me at the same time.

Right now, I have 12 books out from the library and I’m pretty sure that more will be coming in by the end of the month.

And, it’s such a problem because I have 200+ unread books that I own, which I’m desperately trying to get through, and then I have 10+ holds come in that I’m trying to read. Usually, they’re books I want to read immediately or check out if they’re new releases.

Talk to me!

What about you all? Do you use the library? Do you feel you’re addicted to it? And, if you’re from areas that don’t have libraries like most of America has, what do you use to read your books?

  1. I used the library a lot once I found out that my library did inter-library loans between the libraries part of the same consortium but once I started working in libraries, my usage went sky high! I rarely buy books anymore. In fact, my library habit is so bad no one will go to bookstores with me because I just talk about how I can get such and such book at the library!

    • My mom’s a librarian as well! We have two other library systems linked with ours, so that means you can access their downloadable/e-library. So, I totally get that! I’m bad about buying books, but I’m trying to use the library more.

  2. I borrow e-books from the library, it’s a great way to get access to some of the latest books! (providing their publishers are signed up to the e-book provider).
    I don’t often borrow physical books now.

  3. I can relate to this struggle, because I have the same problem. There was a time I borrowed 18 books from the library and couldn’t read them anymore. Atm I managed to keep it down to about 4 to 9 books and as it seems that amount actually work for me. 🙂
