Weekend Reads: On a Monday?

I know.

I am sorry that I didn’t have a chance to post this on Friday. As some of you know, I have been out of town since Friday. It was a hectic and busy weekend, but on Sunday, the spontaneous BBQ that we had with a few close friends made up for it. A whole afternoon filled with good company, some amazing conversations, tons of delicious food, and an hour or two on the Kinect…what beats that?

For my lack of posting, I thought I’d make it up to you with showing you what I just borrowed from the library.

The books that I borrowed from the previous trip were due, so I made the trip over. I decided to check out the new releases first. Even though I had a mental list of books that I wanted to get, it doesn’t hurt to explore authors and books that I hadn’t thought about. Then I browse through the young adult section, since this section is generally smaller than the fiction section. Since there was not a large crowd at the library, I browsed through every row in each section. It may seem a little excessive, but I saw some books that I never noticed before. Also, I saw some books that were tucked away!

I then spent the next hour writing. It was a decent hour until this large crowd came in. I normally do not get bothered by it, especially since I just listen to music, but it was distracting.

What is your normal routine when you visit a library, or a bookstore? What section do you gravitate towards to?

Oh well. Enough ramblings. Here were my borrowed books and will most likely be my reads for the week. But you know me, this could always change.
