Borrowed Books - A trip to the library, and my reading list

Today was a dreary, grey day. Matt had to work all day, so I decided to go downtown and do a little exploring. I had not yet ventured into the city library (why!? I have no idea), so today was a perfect day to do so.
As it turns out, the Portsmouth Library is amazing. They have an excellent selection of books, including my entire Amazon wishlist (!!!), and best of all, getting a library card was free. Oh yeah. I didn't want to be greedy, so I only checked out 3 books and 1 DVD. Matt hasn't seen my favorite movie yet, so I was super excited to find the DVD at the library. They also have a great selection of audiobooks that you can download right from the website. How awesome is that?
You can see what I borrowed in the picture above: The Life Aquatic (DVD), The Sexy Vegan Cookbook, New Hampshire Curiosities, and The Light Between Oceans. I'm going to start The Light Between Oceans as soon as this blog post is published....literally.
After I got home from the library this afternoon, I logged onto the website and made a "To Read" list. Here are all of the books I plan on borrowing in the near future:
