When 4 books you have on hold all become available at the same time! Ugh!When 4 books you have on hold all become available at the same time! Ugh! Janine #questionnaire
Which books? Pay the late fine its cheaper than buying the books.?
Does your library allow you to suspend holds? I just learned about this feature last year and I love it!
Yes, this is a great feature.
I use it mainly to avoid having books arrive during a trip. Some people make a habit of placing holds and immediately suspending them, then releasing each hold when ready to read.
That way you can move up through the waitlist, but not get surprised to have books arrive at inconvenient times.
Good to know. I’ll have to check into it.
See I don’t get this! So I refuse to put them on hold…
Ugh! The worst and the best at the same time! ?
Yes, but with that many, I usually end up bailing on one of them about 10% into it.
All the time. Ugh is right.
I hate that
this is so stressful lol
Current TBR pile and I’m finishing up a 14 day book that was due Monday.
Happens every single time!
Suspend the hold! It took me awhile to figure this out. When you are busy reading one or two books, go in and suspend all books that might pop.
Seems like it always goes that way! Feast or famine as they say
Clearly the cosmic order is calling you to put all other tasks aside and sit down and READ! ???
I like the way you think?
@Janine I’m here for you, fellow book lover! ?
The pain is real lol. Me too
Yipes…time to drop everything and read, read, read!?
Happens all the time to me …. it’s… either all or nothing… xxxx
Oh I HATE THIS! ugh! Good luck! lol
Story of my life…
You can freeze your holds at my libraries. Then when you’re fist on thelist for one of them you can unfreeze it.
Didn’t know about this and just looked and my library has this feature! Amazing!
The struggle is real! ?
Happened with me just last night – finally chose to checkout the most sought after one.
This happened to me yesterday.
Of course they do. It’s as if fate is against us when it comes to book hold. Happy reading.
Story of my life
A delightful problem to have ! 🙂
Luckily mine are coming during my time off: 5 this week!
I’m not the fastest reader either!!
Always happens. So annoying if they are popular and you can’t renew!
Go pick them up and then go the site and hit renew
It never fails. ?
Love your profile pic!!!
Been there, done that. 5 books in one day, two more 3 days later. Too, too much of a good thing.
You can do it!
Welcome to my world
Omg story of my life. So I returned it and put it on hold again. I didn’t mind the wait because I always have some books to read.
Always happens to me. Usually 6 new books
