redcub‘s post about books prompted me to go look to see if the Rowan Gant mysteries are available at any of the three county libraries with whom I have cards. Nope, not one! The Amazon page for the most recent book mentioned the Harry Dresden series. I only read the first of those, but it was very enjoyable, so I searched for those as well—nothing!

Then I remembered seeing a follow-up to Diane Marcellas’ Mother Ocean, Daughter Sea. Again, no joy in three libraries.


I’m also driving myself nuts with trying to remember the name of another book that I read at the same time as MO,DS. The title contains the word “Fire,” it was a first novel, and it was a fantasy novel set in a land where certain races have strong elemental affinities. And that’s all I remember.

I did find that Dana Stabenow has been busy, so I’ve got a couple of her books to look forward to.

As delightful as college libraries are, in my experience they aren’t a good source for the latest genre fiction.

I absolutely adore libraries. Being able to access their catalogs via the web, to place holds and all—SWOON! I do wish that I could go look at a record of the books I’ve checked out, but I know that one of the reasons libraries don’t like to keep such records is because they can be subpoenaed by the FBI. I don’t particularly care who knows what I read, but it’s the principle of the thing.

I lust after a Fulton county library card. Why? Because I’ve never had one and I want it, dammit! But I don’t have a Fulton county address to use, and they charge something like $75 a year to issue a non-resident card. Eeep!
