Oh Dear, Another Library Fine
The glossy cooking book, borrowed from the library, has been sitting on the coffee table, from where I pick it up and browse through it quite often. I'd almost forgotten it was a library book and had eventually to be returned.
When our son called over this morning he casually asked, "Mum, isn't it time that book went back to the library?" I looked up surprised, thinking I hadn't had it that long. But, I decided to check my online library account. Not only was my library book overdue, but I had accrued an 80 cent fine into the bargain.
I promptly renewed it online, along with three other books I have out, thus avoiding any more fines being added to the total. Thank heavens for an observant son, otherwise the fine would have grown even larger. You've probably guessed, I am a regular contributor to the library in this way!
