For a short week (no mail delivery on Monday, Labor Day) I ended up with a tall stack.
It started with my Tuesday trip to a meeting. Why, oh why, did we ever choose to meet in a library?
I resisted browsing the new book
shelf, but right by the exit there was this rack of discards. At 25
cents each how could I walk on by? (Dates in parentheses are dates rec'd, not publication dates.)

Then there was an Email from the library so I went there to pick up a hold (The Bone Clocks). I just took a glance at the new book shelf--I should have known better.

There is also another hold "in transit" which may mean "in limbo" since it's had that status for several days.
