Like someone calling and asking what kinds of cute furry animals I'd like to see more of

Someone from my local public library called my home today to ask me if I wanted to request any books for their Overdrive collection. Now I'm wondering whether they called all their Overdrive users, or just their most active ones. Either way, that says sad things about my public library's overall Overdrive usage. I really haven't used it much.

 

Now I feel guilty. I may check out one of their Overdrive books in the morning... I wish I could read faster. I want to support the Overdrive collections of the library I work at and my public library, and get through my paper and electronic TBRs, all at the same time.

 

Oh, and here's what I'll probably be requesting, in order of most wanted to least ("least" being things I'll probably buy anyway):
