This week I have started using my local library services again. Lately my ebook and audiobook consumption has gone through the roof while being at home all day long. I have a Scribd membership that I absolutely love, but unfortunately my usage has gone over their limits and I have to wait until the 22nd to access most of the books that I’ve saved. There are still a lot of books I can access on there, but they aren’t titles that I am currently interested in.
I haven’t used my local library’s services much in the last 15 years. I borrowed a physical book a few years ago and returned it late which left me with a small late fee. As happens to many people, I felt so bad about the charge waiting for me to pay back that I just avoided borrowing anything from them again. Now that the library has done away with late fees and I am desperate for books to read, I have decided to try again. I’m only using their digital services because I don’t want to be responsible for a physical book. This makes sure that I can’t be late returning things, but also am not spending money on digital copies from other resources.

This Week’s Literary Holidays
“I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.”― Edgar Allan Poe
What I’m Watching
For years my in-laws have been obsessively watching Murdoch Mysteries but somehow I was never drawn to it. But lockdown can make a person desperate for any new tv, and Netflix has all 13 seasons available, so that’s what I’ve been watching. Now I’m kicking myself for missing out on this for so long! I mean, look at that quirky adorable man and tell me that you don’t want to find out what the heck he’s up to! The characters are wonderful, and I love being able to identify filming locations I know from my wanders around Toronto.
Off the Blog
I keep getting orders on the little online postcard shop (cravepaper.com) that I started a few years ago. I don’t know how people are finding it, honestly. I don’t advertise in any way, but over the last few months I have been getting orders every couple of weeks. I assume that I must be getting recommendations from the wonderful Postcrossing communities that I used to frequent on Facebook. It’s always such a nice surprise, and maybe some day I might actually make money on this. Right now the money I poured in to stock, shipping supplies, and web hosting basically just make it a labour of love.
So hey, if you live in Canada and like to send snail mail, maybe check out my shop? Unfortunately I had to turn off international orders because the mail system has been super slow since COVID hit.
