Remember a long long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I proclaimed that I was going to read (or at least listen to) more nonfiction books? And that I put in a couple of requests online for books on CD at the library, including Freakanomics, which spurred a brief discussion?
Well, the library STILL doesn't have any of them for me. It's been a month and a half. More! Where are my books? I was first in the HOLDS list for Geraldine Brooks' Year of Wonders. How long does it take to drive a book from Fort Lauderdale to Hollywood, I ask you???
I NEED these books on CD. It's not so bad on the way to work - if I hit it right, I get most of the first hour of the Diane Rehm show on NPR - but on the way home I'm stuck with either Panthers hockey or NPR's News and Notes, which is usually good for the first half hour but then tends to veer toward interviews with R&B acts and other assorted entertainment that I'm not terribly interested in.
I'm going to remember this, Library, when I'm doling out my meager charity donations for the year.
