And sometimes I check out a lot of books at the library. That way I won't have to come back in the next day (I read really fast).
But I am kind of forgetful.
And sometimes when it's time to return them, I can't find a book or two.
And after a few days of searching, I forget about them. For a year.
I always return them eventually. And I'll try to pay the fines. But there were times when I was too poor to do that, and so I had to just avoid the library until I had more money. Or until I moved.
(Usually until I moved.)
I now have overdue fines at 7 different libraries, in 4 different states.
They haven't come after me yet.
But I know it's only a matter of time.
