Anissa I pre-ordered Tiamat's Wrath & before the day is done I'll have A Memory Called Empire. I've so been looking forward to AMCE & I'm going to have to finish my current book today so that I can get right to it.

Haha! Yeah, I've found most libraries are really responsive to reader requests. It might take them some time to get it in, but in my experience, they normally do in the end.

message 15: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne Put "The Library of Lost and Found" on hold at the library. I loved "The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper"--one of the few books I gave a "5" rating.

message 18: by Herbertson (new)

Herbertson It would be interesting to read all these books but sadly I have no time. I think that I could discover more best nursing shoes for flat feet than books at my job. Hope that I could read something on vacation. I'm waiting for that day and hope that it will come soon.


message 19: by Pam (new)

Pam Carmichael Thank God for books, I would go mad if I could not read!!
