Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice"
to the Tuesday Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Betsy, Beth, Kathleen, Deb, Lisa, Melanie, and Lanny
for hosting this meeting place each Tuesday and nurturing our writing lives.
It all started with a simple search for Things to Do by Elaine Magliaro. I had just read Linda Baie's review of this new book, so I headed to our library site to request the book.
But I soon found myself with more books on my holds shelf. You see when I entered Things to Do as the title search, I ended up with 44 pages of things to do and 1,096 items. I am easily distracted, but no, I did not look at all 44 pages. However, I did allow myself to peruse the first page of 25 titles. And that's how I ended up with three additional titles on my holds list:
- 100 Things to Do In Seattle Before You Die (which is ready for me to pick up)
- Sixty Things to Do When You Turn Sixty (in transit)
- 50 Fantastic Things to Do With Babies (also in transit)
So, I'll have some books to amuse me while I wait for Elaine's book to show up. I'm hold #5 on 15 copies, but they are all currently "in process" (library speak for new books that are waiting in a long line to get processed and become available for check out). But no worries, I'll have 100, 60, and 50 things to do while I wait. I wonder how many things to do are in Elaine's book!
