I Let My Faith Wane

and then yesterday the Galesburg Public Library surprised me, when I found on the new fiction shelf:

Daniel Woodrell's Winter's Bone
Scott Snyder's Voodoo Heart

One thing about the Galesburg Public Library I love: They still stamp the insides of books, to let you know when they're due. I used to love being able to see how many people had checked out a certain book, and when they'd checked it out, almost as much as I love reading other people's marginalia. Recently, though, many libraries have thrown away their stamps, and made checking out books a wholly electronic process, which is a shame.

In case you were wondering, I was the first person to check out either of the above books.
