Today after work, I went to the library to pick up some books. Mr. Smith doesn't have a library card yet, so he went online and held a few books on my library card. I went into the library, returned two books, found the book I wanted, and went to the checkout.
"Hi, I have a few books on hold," I said to the kind library lady.
I walked out of the library with:
The Devil We Know: Dealing with the New Iranian Superpower, by Robert Baer;
Lone Survivor: the Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of Seal Team 10, by Marcus Luttrell with Patrick Robinson;
Sleeping with the Devil: How Washington Sold Our Soul for Saudi Crude, by Robert Baer; Engaging the Muslim World, by Juan Cole; and
Occasions, by Kate Spade.
I'll let you figure out which of those was my book.
