It’s time to do my monthly Library Checkout post! 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!

Returned Unread or Incompletely Read

I have a tendency to add a book to the ‘hold’ list whenever I see it, even if I don’t have time to read it at the moment. Then I ‘freeze’ it. This is a neat feature my library offers that allows me to keep moving up on the reserve list and then remain first in line so I have only a short wait when I do have time to read the book.
So I’ve decided to break my ‘on holds’ list into two segments. The above list are books that I’ve added to my holds in the past month. The list below are books that have been on my holds list for over one month, sometimes because there are a lot of people are in line ahead of me, but more often because I’ve frozen my hold.
