I stopped by the local library branch yesterday and found that they had the books I had requested the earlier. Now they hadn’t called me to let me know. They hadn’t emailed me to let me know either. I need to check out my patron profile to see if they have an email address and the correct phone number there. There needs to be a better way to find out if the requested books are ready. But I picked up Dan Simmons The Terror. I’m going to be reading the books I planned to read for the RIP II Challenge, even if it happens a lot later than I initially intended.
