Went to return two books, and maybe borrow one. Ended up bringing seven of them home :)
The one I went to get: Shoe Dog by Phil Knight
The two that were in my read some time list:
- The Art of failing by Anthony McGowan and
- Mr. Iyer goes to war by Ryan Lobo (finished)
The four that I picked up from browsing around the sections:
- Gizelle’s bucket list by Lauren Fern Watt
– A dog story, my weakness
- Singin’ and Swingin’ and Gettin’ Merry Like Christmas by Maya Angelou
– Saw her name, picked it up
- Can’t Swim, Can’t Ride, Can’t Run by Andy Holgate
– I’d come across this book often in Amazon recommendations, never enticed enough to buy.
- Running up that hill by Vassos Alexander
– Running & hills, two of my many other weaknesses :)

In the next box it lists the books I already have out on loan, with due dates for each.
In the final box it shows any fees that I have outstanding. In this case it is £1.50 for two books that I had reserved (75p each).

That’s all. Simple and sufficient.
