One of the children's librarians who is temporarily working out of my building shares my last name and first initial. I have been getting her holds in my box every once in a while, and the other day, one of the Fables graphic novels ended up there. On my way up to her desk to give it to her, I flipped through it and decided to check out the first volume. I just read a few pages of it on my break, and it is really cool! Now I'm putting holds on the rest of the series. So far I can read up to Volume 4 without waiting. :) It will be a fun day off tomorrow sitting on the beach and reading graphic novels.
And I AM going to count these towards my 50 books for the year. Reading is reading!
