my list of books on hold at the library

Does this tell you anything?  Can you tell I need a little inspiration and motivation?
Have you read any of these books?  What did you think?  Do books motivate you?
I started reading I shouldn't be telling you this... but I never finished because I had to return it to the library because it was late.  Ooopsies!  I enjoyed what I read and felt like a lot of it was applicable to me.  I'm looking forward to finishing.

Here's to many hours at Starbucks or on my back porch reading all these books!

P.S. The Intuitive Eating is kind of random and obviously doesn't really fit the theme of the other books.  It's a book I've heard good things about and thought, "hey, if I'm going to the library, I may as well throw that one in too."

P.P.S.  Did you know that the Santa Fe Public Library doesn't have late fees?  Isn't that crazy?  So if you have a late book, you get a bunch of emails "reminding" you that your book is overdue but you're never charged a fee.  The first time I had a book overdue, I walked it into the library and informed the employee that I needed to pay the late fees and the lady looked at me like I was crazy and said, "What do you mean by late fees?"  I slowly walked out of the library...I thought I was being punked or something.  Turns out, it wasn't a joke, there are not late fees.  Sweet!

I think I'm the library's least favorite type of patron. I'll check out a book, set it on my night stand, not read it, renew it three times, and finally crack it open a week before it's due. And the only reason I'll read it at that point, is because they won't actually let me renew it again. But, I always return them on time so they don't make any money on me either, lol. Also, I haven't read anything on your list, but if you ever need fiction picks you know who to ask :)

I usually run out of renewals too or someone has it on hold so it doesn't let me renew it. :) I've gotten a lot of books recommendations from your blog - I always enjoy your reviews of books on your blog! I read Sharp Objects a month or so ago, I really like Gillian Flynn. Have you read Wild by Cheryl Strayed? I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on this book.
