The County of Los Angeles Public Library system is a manifestation of my subconscious. I put books on hold with its online tool and then forget all about them. Later I get a notification that the book is waiting for me at my local library, and I go pick it up and read it. Simple.
More often than not, the latest book that emerges from the system is the exact thing I need to read at that time in my life. Tina Fey’s Bossypants when I most needed a belly laugh. Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane when I needed an escape.
