Thursday Thoughts, October 18, 2012--Next Read

It's only Thursday, but I'm already thinking about what I'll start reading over the weekend. I placed a hold on The Casual Vacancy at New York Public Library several months ago, after learning that J.K. Rowling was writing a novel expressly for adults.  I picked the book up earlier this week and, much like a Harry Potter novel,  it weighs in at a whopping 503 pages.

Rowling  There has been so much publicity surrounding this new book, and from the little I've heard, reviews are running hot and cold.  I'm planning an open-minded approach, and look forward to forming my own opinion.  If Rowling taps into the rich imagination displayed in the Harry Potter series, it's sure to be an entertaining read.

  1. Ha! I have been attempting to get this book through ILL with no luck so far. I may just have to buy it...

    1. Yes, this is a popular title. Currently at New York Public Library there are 1,233 hold requests on 201 print copies and 438 hold requests on 18 large print copies. You might consider placing a hold on the audiobook CD through your local library because there tend to be fewer requests for that format.
