How to get books you really want from the library every time you visit
- Get old.
- While you're getting old develop a like for a variety of fiction styles: SF, historic detective stories, fiction that wins literary prizes but isn't too wierd, magical realism.
- Read about a book a month. Go to the library every three months.
- (And this is the important one.) Keep a list on your phone of authors you've liked previously, or that you've heard about on TV, radio, newspapers, book blogs or book podcasts.
- Visit the library and work through that list.
