So, I was doing some of my traditional bookshelf fussing to put things on the paperback swap list. Except, I discover that I really shouldn't swap this particular book, because it was checked out from the Boston Public Library. In 1991.

Library books

I have a book I checked out of my elementary school library in 1979. I still plan to go return it some day and pay the fine...

Some day.

"What do I do?
What do I do?
This library book is 42
Years overdue.
I admit that it's mine
But I can't pay the fine--
Should I turn it in
Or hide it again?
What do I do?
What do I do?"

(Shel Silverstein)

Happily, the BPL fine does max out at something ridiculously small. So I can just take it back and pay the fine. I do wonder whether they actually *want* it at this point, but even if they don't, they can probably put it in their boko sale or something. :)

Then you should have titled your post as a confession too!

You make me feel so much better about my overdue library books. My longest was only about 5 years. :)
