Library Loot June 23-29

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!

This week Marg has the Mr. Linky where you can link your own Library Loot post anytime this week if you wish to participate.

Because of a planned visit at my Mom's in Longview WA from July 11 thru mid August, I've cut back to nearly zip on ordering books at the library here so no new ones came for me since last Tuesday. But on Thursday several more DVD arrived and were brought home:

The West Wing. The complete 4th season
Bones season 1 discs 3 & 4 (already watched and sent back)

Band of Brothers the HBO mini-series
Curb your enthusiasm. The complete first season

The first four I have high motivation to watch before I leave but I may pass on the last three until I can get them back again after I return. They were sent for with my husband in mind or at his request so I'll make the effort only if he is motivated. At the moment though he seems to have other things on his agenda.

That isn't the end of the DVD either. I've already sent for The West Wing season 5 and as soon as it arrives will also send for 6 and 7. I'm highly motivated to get the whole thing watched before I leave as I seem to have been the one to discover the library system had acquired the entire series a couple months ago because I have been first in queue for each so far but the queues are building up behind me and if I wait until I get back in August I'll be in weeks or months long queues for whichever ones I don't get watched before I leave.

Meanwhile the list of items checked out is shrinking. Nearly cut in half in the last ten days and I'm looking at the books left with a sinking feeling as it becomes evident that I can't hope to finish with one quarter of them. Choosing makes me weary. Instead of choosing I spend way too much time moving the piles around, fondling the covers, flipping the pages and sighing as the panic rises. Pathetic or what?

The consolation is that my sister lets me use her card while I'm there and I have access to the library I grew up with and there are dozens of books I've had bookmarks in at some point in the last decade which did not make it to the last page.

To see some of the titles of books I still have see yesterday's It's Monday! What are You Reading. Maybe suggest which of the novels I should prioritize.
