Wendy's Library List


I walked into the library this morning just in time to see someone pick up a book from my display. I very uncreepily followed her over to where she was checking out books in order to determine which book she'd chosen. It was Rocket Boys, one of those nonfiction titles I avoid because I'm convinced it will be dull, only to become absolutely smitten with when I give it a try.

I promised you a list, and I'm going to over-deliver, trust me on that. First, here's a link to the full 149 item list I generated, alphabetical by author's last name (where applicable).

But 149 items is a lot to slog through, especially without context, so I'm going to share some more data here.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



NON BOOK ITEMS

  • stud finder
  • bocce ball set
  • Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince DVD
  • mini heart silicone mold cake pan
  • Room with a View DVD
  • Waiting to Exhale DVD


Yes, these are all things I've checked out from the library. And yes, I only added movies that were book adaptations. I would have also included the GoPro my son borrowed once for filming skateboarding life, or the ice cream maker we try to get once a year, but they both have dozens of holds, so I didn't want to try to mess with that.

PICTURE BOOKS
Clearly, I mostly like funny picture books and ones with messages of love.

NONFICTION, POETRY, AND OTHER THINGS YOU DIDN'T REALIZE FALCONER'S LIBRARY LOVES TO READ
You can tell a lot about my non-book hobbies and interest from this list. Also, that I prefer my poetry free verse, narrative, and direct.

  • Ursula K. LeGuin (who totally would have been on here more if they'd had more of her books here)

  1. Wait a minute, you can check an ice cream maker out of your library?! Did I read that correctly? Obviously, I am living in the wrong part of the country.

    I love book lists and am very glad you are posting this list. There are a few things on there that sound interesting. The Ghost Map and The American Cake are just two examples.

  2. I’m still impressed that you can check out non-book things from the library. My library doesn’t even have most of the books I want.

    Also, it must have taken you forever to make all of these links. There are so many links in this post!
