The day that reading lists are released for upcoming assignments is always a bit of a scramble as everyone is trying to get the books that they need before anyone else!
The effect of this is being doubled for me this semester as I’ve got two 2,500 essays due on Friday 27th March, so I have to start getting everything together early to have any hope of getting them both finished on time. I need every book I can get.
There’s always bound to be at least one other person who’s going to be doing the same essay title as you, so it becomes a competition of who can get the books first. And once you’ve got them, you’re just waiting for someone to place a hold on them and take them from you. It’s very anxious business!
So today I’m heading into the library armed with my reading list and the knowledge that, at least at the moment, all the book I want are available. Hopefully they remain that way until I get there.
Wish me luck and I’ll keep you updated!
