I’ve got a beef with my library’s online reservation system. For some reason it will no longer keep track of my book list. Every time I log out of their website, the new entries disappear. I discovered this when I opened the list to reserve some of the many books I’ve added to it over the past few months. Books from April Henry’s reviews in the Oregonian, those recommended in by other authors, and those I’ve stumbled across online. Gone, all of them.
It made me pretty cranky to learn that what I thought was a bulletproof safety deposit box for recommended reads had been ransacked by an electronic glitch. Now I have to compile my book list in Word, which is a pain in the butt. It requires me to actually type, something I do only marginally better than your average earthworm.
