So far I’m not liking The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever as much as Quinn’s other works. It’s going by very quickly, but it’s not as much fun as the best of her books.  In fact, I’m even noticing the bad writing, which is generally a bad sign.  Too many paragraphs starting with “and” or “but”.  Oh well.  It’s still decent, just not as good.

And for the mini-challenge:

  1. What is the name of your local library? What city is it located in?
  2. York Central Library and it’s right in the center of York, next to a museum and the medieval walls.

  3. How often do you go to the library? If you’re a regular, do the staff know you?
  4. Maybe once a week? The staff don’t know me, but I’ve applied for a job there, so they might in future.

  5. Do you browse while you’re there or just pick up items you have placed on reserve?
  6. I browse if I have time! I haven’t been too successful there lately though. I think more people are using it as a result of the recession.

  7. What is your favorite thing about your local library?
  8. Well, honestly, free books. I love that I can get lots of non-fiction and craft books there too, which are normally more expensive than fiction, and I can justify checking out books I wouldn’t necessarily want to buy.

And, back I go! Hope it’s going well for everyone else. I’m off to check!
