Thursday Thirteen 26

The doors of our Southern Oregon Library System are closing indefinitely in nine days. For an explanation see my post, Southern Oregon's Looming Library Closure. Several of my TT since I learned of this in early December have been on this theme. The last three were a three part series on the research projects of mine which will be impacted. The issue is still consuming my attention so once more into the breach...

These thirteen items aren't the only remaining library items vying for my attention by any means. They are just some of the most important to me. Between our two cards my husband and I still have close to sixty items out and most of what is on my husband's card was more for me than him. And as you can see with #13, I cheated a bit.

I split the list rather arbitrarily into three catagories: Non-Fiction books, Novels and DVD--four of each plus #13. Of the novels I can probably hope to complete only two. I've already started #5. Help me decide which of the remaining three I should commit to. #6 is the shortest. #7 is by the author of Three Junes which won the National Book Award--a novel I adored and for which I wrote this book review. #8 is by the most recent winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
