Am I the only one who finds the ACT Libraries collection a tiny tad lacking? Pretty much each and every book I want to read, I have to request to be held because they never seem to make it to the shelves. And now I know why. For 3 of the books I recently asked to be held, I am 15th, 14th and 13th in the queue. That’s a 10 month wait to read a book?!
I checked the shelves for a few classic authors today and for some did not find even one of their books on the shelves. So all I can go in there for is to collect items that are being held for me when they finally arrive. Browsing is futile.
It makes it tempting to just buy them cheaply from overseas, but I have so many books that I will never read again on my bookshelves already… Maybe I should do it anyway and then donate them to the library once I’ve read them!
