Library books to return

I have a bad habit of checking out too many library books at a time. I get them read, but not quickly enough. To make this problem worse, the library no longer charges for overdue books, so I tend to sit on the books, thinking that I’ll get to them eventually.

I renew my books online, but if there is someone waiting for the book, or if I have already renewed the loan three times, I can’t renew it anymore. These books become overdue.

I have several that are overdue, and several that I know I won’t read any time soon. These should go back. I know this.

I will be going on a trip soon, so I think I should probably go through my library books and see what I’ll finish before I go, and what I want to take with me. The audiobooks automatically go with me, on my phone, so they aren’t an issue. And ebooks go on my kindle. Both types of digital books get returned as soon as the library decides I need to return them.

I have given myself a project today. Actually, multiple projects. 1) return the library books that are in my car. 2) Decide what library books are due, and what won’t be read before my trip. 3) Decide what is going with me on my trip. 4) Locate the books that are going to go back. 5) Put the books to return in the car. And… 6) Fix the book stack that may topple while I am away.

I also have to do laundry, since I spilled my breakfast down the front of my scrubs at work this morning.

I probably should start thinking about what I am going to pack for my trip, too.

Two more tasks for a nice round 10?
