Yeah I am now the proud owner of a Library Card!!! We have a rather large brand new(well I guess it's about 2 years old now)library! It is a really interesting building. It has a very...governmental...feel to it...I'm not entirely sure if that's a good thing or not! It's very crisp and clean and fresh. I do like the way it is laid out as everything has it's own room. They even have a geneology room! I went in looking for the 1st two books in Gena's Alien Huntress series. I was delighted to find the fiction room...unfortunately they have them groups by author as opposed to genre...so...the romance books were all mixed in with everything else. It was kind of frustrating since they didn't have the books I was looking for. I generaly like to peruse the romance section looking for something that catches my fancy. Can't do that in our library. =( I ended up finding another Nalini Signh book and one by Maggie Shanye. I am about 3/4 of the way through Nalini's so there should be another update soon.
ooooh I also have decided that YES audiobooks count as long as they are the unabridged version...I mean really what's the point of the abridged version!!! Several months ago I joined Audible.com It's $15 a month and I get a credit. A credit will buy me almost ANY book in their library. And I also get 30% off any book NOT purchased with credits. I have Gena SHowalter's entire Lords of the Underworld series on audiobook right now. Today I decided to bu another audiobook (since I forgot to check out the selection at the library! LOL) I decided to get a classic this time around. So I used my monthly credit and got Gone With the Wind! It's 48 hours of listening enjoyment! (or so I hope!) GWTW normally retails for 48 dollars!!!!! And I got it essentially for $15...gotta love that!
Since I was talking about my current library...I thought I would share a pic of the library I grew up with. It will always be my favorite library...it has sooooo much character! =D
