This is really a question for the librarians among us.
My public library allows for 5 interlibrary loans per patron per month. It says on the library website that this is to help with our "research."
My library also has large posters up on the walls, giving suggestions for books to read. "If you like Jane Austen, then why not try . . . ." "If you like Agatha Christie, then you might like . . . ." "If you like Dowton Abbey, then you might like to read . . . ."
So they get me started on a new author and I like him/her, but the library doesn't have all of their books. And many of these authors are writing series, and I always like to read a series in order.
Is it okay to use interlibrary loan for complete fluff books, murder mysteries and the like? Or is it expected that ILL will be used for non-fiction research type books? There's really no other way to get these books; I can't buy them all.
(I'm blaming the librarians for this. They are doing too good a job with their suggestions. It's all their fault.)
