Libraries rock

There are very few authors whose books I want to read as soon as they come out, but for William Gibson I make an exception. His new book Spook Country came out two weeks ago, but seeing as I have around 15 books sitting by the side of my bed waiting to be read, I decided not to buy the hardback and decided to just wait for the paperback to come out.

Meagan, my wife, made the very sensible suggestion to ask at the local library. Having read about the financial pressures on local libraries, I thought the chances of actually getting it were fairly slim, what with all the copies of Harry Potter they've probably had to buy.

Therefore I was very pleasantly surprised when Meagan came home with the hardback which I'll be reading over the next couple of days.
