Allgemein, Viennese Strolls

Library Hopping & A Huge Book Haul

Hey there, my lovelies! 🙂

As you all know (and you’re probably tired of me complaining about it. *lol*) my library is still partly closed and after 1 1/2 months in which I couldn’t access my precious English section they apparently decided that they’d close the entire library until the 10th of August. >_<

I hate to say it, but „Oh woe is me?“ XD

Luckily, I have an awesome bestie and we both decided it’s about time to go take a closer look at other libraries. I mean we’re talking about Vienna here, it’s not like we wouldn’t have a huge variety. 😉

So in the end we started at one and then took it from there and I swear, I’m in awe of the Viennese libraries now. *lol* It’s amazing what you stumble across when you leave your favourite haunt and decide to take another route  path! I was surprised to find out that they have so many newly published books and even more surprised that they weren’t borrowed. Haha! Which in all honesty, was pretty awesome for me.

All things considered we made it to three different libraries and by the end of our hopping I had 10 books in my backpack and was a smiling and happy camper! *lol* Some might even say I looked like the cat that ate the canary. 😛

I swear, I never borrowed that many books from the library at the same time but damn it was worth it. Plus I even found „Interview with the Vampire“ which is actually on My Book List 2019! I’ve been looking for that one for ages and was astonished to find it in one of their branches. 😀

At one of the libraries one of their employees even started to chat with us and seemed to be really intrigued by our library hopping. Apparently this was an actual thing a few years ago, but now no one is doing it anymore. I think we kinda made his day because he was very sweet and even recommended some other libraries that have huge English sections as well. XD

So all told yesterday was a huge success! My back might hurt but look at this wonderful book haul, it’s a sight to behold:


Now I just need to read them all! *LOL*

Wish me luck guys! Something (and the library deadline) tells me that I’ll need it! 😛

Did you read any of those already and if „yes“ did you like them? Tell me and let me know!
