I discovered something about my life as a library user today. That is, I hate digital holds. This might have to do with my desire to have everything planned out; I may over-structure my reading life. I get stuck in an agenda and when a wrench (albeit a wrench I’d been looking forward to) gets thrown into my agenda, I might feel a little stuck.
On the one hand, I want to finish the book(s) I’ve already started – I’m trying really hard not to read a million books at the same time this year. On the other, I also need/want to listen to the books that I got off of hold before they expire. Sure, I could download them, put them on a device, and be the bad library patron who doesn’t delete the files after the loan has expired. But that’s not the library patron I want to be.
How do you prioritize? (There’s a poll in my IG story if you’re interested in weighing in over there.)
