I wish I had kept track of all the books I've ever read. Once I asked the library for a print out of all the books I've checked out. They refused. They'll do that if the government asks, won't they?

Right now I'm reading "In the Long Run" by Jim Axelrod.

Actually, no, libraries will not give lists of books checked out to the government. They used to keep such lists, but when the Patriot Act was passed and it was made clear that they MIGHT have to turn over such information they chose to stop keeping the information.
