....is your library get bigger a lot faster than before? I have cards at three Texas libraries, plus the Phili Free one.  I check for new books every few days (usually just to get on the waitlists) and I've noticed that the two smaller libraries in Texas are getting tons of new ebooks all the time.  They are getting new titles, as well as filling out the series they had one or two books of before.  I'm loving it! Of course, now I have a library TBR pile and a non-library TBR.  Yet, I check for new books all the time...lol

My libraries dont get ALL the Authors works...  They might get 10 out of 30 of an author.  Not in any order either.  So your lucky their.  But if it an author I start to really like then I end up buying ALL their books!  So for me Libraries are just to test drive Authors to see if they worth it.

One cool thing I've noticed lately with FLP...if you can pick up a copy of Bookpage in a Books a Million store, a lot of the newest books shown there are showing up in FLP.  Love love love FLP!
