Library Checkout: November 2015

It’s time to do my monthly  Library Checkout post! Actually, it is past time! I’m running a bit behind due to holiday activities and Nonfiction November.  Library Checkout is hosted by Shannon at River City Reading. The purpose of the meme is to track our library check-outs, reads, and of particular interest to me, because I always have so many, our books on hold! I will be including both print books and ebooks. I love this idea of tracking, so let’s get started!

Library Books Read
  • Moloka’i book club set
  • I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

Currently Checked Out
  • Everything I Never Told You book club set
  • Saving Grace by Jane Green

Returned Unread or Incompletely Read
I returned nothing unread last month

On Hold
  • Being Mortal by Atul Gawanda
  • The Dressmaker’s War by Mary Chamberlain
  • The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin
  • The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton
  • The Hours Count by Jillian Cantor
  • Neurotribe by Steve Silberman
I have a pretty extensive hold list because I have reserved every book that MIGHT be chosen by our book club to read in 2016. However, I freeze the hold until I know we are going to actually choose the book for discussion, so I don’t really count those on my ‘holds’ list. The books listed above are books that I am actually waiting on!

Ok; it’s your turn now! What’s your current status with your local library? Post it on your blog, and share the link on Shannon’s post here.

  1. That's an awesome idea - of putting books on hold and then freezing the hold. I never thought about doing that. My ebook / audiobook load from the library exploded a bit in the last 2 weeks and of course, I want to read everything but can't!

  2. You have so many great books on your hold list! I'm especially excited to hear what you think about Being Mortal and Neurotribes. Both seem like interesting reads!
