Dear Public Library,
You're my friend. You've finally come through with producing one of the books I put on hold way back in the beginning of September.
But I do have a small problem. See, this book that is now sitting on a shelf with my name on it? It's the third book in a series. And I'm still patiently waiting for your guys to provide me with the chance to read the second book in the series.
And you finding Book 3 for me? That puts me in a odd situation. Because I need to read number 2 before number 3, because that's the way it's supposed to be done. But I don't really want to go out and buy Book 2, because why should I buy the second book if I don't already own the first or third book. And besides, you know as soon as I buy the book, you'll tell me it's at the library, waiting for me.
But I'll still come and pick up my copy of Book 3, because it's here. And I'll figure something out for Book 2.
