Book reviews, musings and waffle from a British lit addict

Library raid #1: Epic fail…

I’ve almost finished creeping myself out with ‘The Angel’s Game’ (hopefully review will be up tomorrow!) so I thought that today would be a good time to check out my local library and hit two birds with one library-card-shaped stone. So I bobbled home on the bus, got off, strolled along only to find it has changed its opening hours and was closed…oh…

It turns out that now, being a full-time worker and library-goer needs better planning. So, a little local internet research later on, and I know that the library is now closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It is, however, open for a few hours on Fridays and Saturdays so better luck to me next time…

Hopefully I’ll be making some headway on my challenges soon!



  • So frustrating, better luck next time.

  • Fortunately, I've recovered from my irritation now – after a relaxing trip to the library of course šŸ™‚

    Collection for the weekend is nicely boosted so now all I need is some sun to read it in!

    Have a great Saturday!

  • Just wanted to say hi and let you know how much I am enjoying your posts, I just sort of stumbled in via book blogs, nice to find a new blog to enjoy.
    Library opening is frustrating, more funding for libraries, so we can have better opening hours. Happy blogging and may your book hunting be successful!

  • Hi!

    Thanks šŸ™‚ It's a work in progress but I'm pretty happy with it so far.

    I would definitely back more funding for libraries because they can be so great when they're well stocked and kept – obviously, being open is also a bonus!

    I just checked out your blog and love that you did a Terry Pratchett challenge. I wish I had started blogging and doing challenges at the beginning of the year – I'm definitely in next time!
