June taught me rough lessons that have made me shift my library reading ways for July. I struggled to balance the short loan times of longer novels I wanted to read in June. One of my library cards almost always has the titles I want to read available, but for only 14 day loans. I thought I could read a few longer novels faster than humanly possible for my eyes, haha, you live and you learn.
Here is what I learned in June:
- Again, popular titles have LONG wait times.
- Do not request multiple 500+ page novels at once.
- Audiobooks have a shorter wait time, if any wait time at all!
- IF you must read huge novels in one month, request a mix of audiobooks and ebooks.
- SOME ebook loans will linger on your Kindle after the loan has ended. I do not know why, but it happens. You can keep reading and then return the look manually. I do not know how long the loan would stay on your Kindle.
- When listening to an audiobook on Libby, if you tap the book cover Libby will display stats for that listening session.
- Do not be afraid to go to the library and pick up physical copies of the books you want to read!
