#LoveMyLibraryCard Confession: I’m not good with Author Aliases!!!! By not good, I mean I am HORRIBLE with Author (or Narrator) Aliases. Even if I have been told before what pen/narrator names an author or a narrator have. Unless I have google in front of me, I am going to most likely get it wrong. So what does that have to do with my Library Card? Let me tell you the tale of the Jessicas. Yesterday I was in the mood to read something I haven’t tried in a while because normally it is just not my cup of tea: Billionaires. Of course not being my cup of tea AND the fact that I have a horribly strict book budget this year, I went online to my overdrive libraries as one does in times like these. I don’t know about y’all but libraries are my spur book “shopping” places to go. Overdrive is possibly my favorite way of getting books in my hand. The other reason is I can “whim” shop and not have any guilt. This is how this tale took place! ONE YEAR AGO: Last year during Buns and Roses I was talking to my friend Beth about a PNR series that I found fun. The author of that series Jessica Sims was there. That is when I heard of a new series by Jessica under Jessica Clare was coming out around Roughneck Billionaires. I had to confess that I never read any of her Jessica Clare books (contemporary in general is probably my least read romance sub-genre) but it sounded like something I might like. The Billionaire thing made me just put it on my library maybe list. I did really like what I had read of her PNR and I generally will trust authors across sub-genres. So I stored that in “for later” to read list. FAST-FORWARD TO YESTERDAY AFTERNOON: As often happens to me, I was being a moody reader yesterday afternoon. I have been pretty much reading PNR, UF, and Historical all summer long. I was CRAVING something different so I thought about that book. However here is what I remembered from that conversation long ago: Billionaires and Jessica. Now I also thought I remembered the word Bastard being talked about (or it could be just a word I had stuck in my head) but when I searched for Billionaire and Jessica there were a few options that popped up. I looked at the covers (nope I didn’t read the descriptions) and one looked more like the billionaire I sort of remembered being discussed. It was available so I picked it up! That book was The Bastard Billionaire by Jessica Lemon! I borrowed it and started reading it immediately. As I often do when reading, I took to Twitter. I shared that I thought I had picked up a book that was not a first in series. I had thought the book I was after was a first in series book but I was enjoying […]

I haven’t done one of these in FOREVER but #LibraryCardSignUp Month is September so every Monday in September I will show you how I use my library Hold and Loan System ONLINE!! I am a huge fan of Overdrive. Let’s start with HOLDS: I have 3 library cards and use the hold system to it’s fullest! Library 1: Local Library 2: Cross City Agreement Library Library 3: Anybody in the State is allowed a Library Card A couple of ways I use my Library System: *To check out books that I have the audiobook (I like to have the text to refer to) *If I really want a book I will put on hold in more than one library to see which one I get it first *Cookbooks!!!!! *Non-Fiction Books!!! True Crime specifically *Books I have heard are good but I am not sure I will like! How do you use your library hold system? Do you have more than one library card?
