Have you ever...(3)
As a collector of books, though probably still within amateur ranks compared to some, I usually purchase my reading material (besides those I receive as review copies). Recently, I've been faced with the scary fact that I'm running out of room to store and display my books, which truly saddens me. In an effort to conserve space...I've asked my daughter when she'll be moving out but she says, "Mom, I only 9!", so her room won't be available for another decade....I've acquired a library card. Ok, more than one library card; I like having options.
So, I've begun, slowly, borrowing books from the library. But I am really bad at returning the items or fitting them into my reading schedule. I want to read these books, I really do, but sometimes, I just can't get it done!
Worse still are the penalties charged for my tardiness. Am I alone in this bad habit?
Have you ever: Returned a library book late (even after several extensions) without having read it? Matching poll is on the right blog bar but please feel free to comment below. Your admissions may help to quell my own guilty conscience :-)
