Wendy Steps In It

Oh. My. God. You know, my brain has been known to occasionally meltdown, but I walked into work this morning, fired up my computer, and discovered the most shocking e-mail.

One of our branch staff e-mailed me and said, "I had a patron ask about Dashing Through the Snow by Carol Higgins Clark, and I can't find it in the catalog."

Yeah, yours truly, the Super Librarian, forgot to order the new Mary Higgins Clark & Carol Higgins Clark holiday mystery!

Oh. My. God.

Seriously, the Justice League will probably show up this afternoon to take away my Super Librarian badge.

Head, meet desk.

Don't you hate when you do something like that? My stomach sinks, I feel nauseous and get like a cold chill.

Don't beat yourself up, Wendy, I'm sure it'll all work out in the end.

Oops. Yeah, just say you thought you'd been transferred to my town... it would be immediately understood. Yeah, we have nada over here...

Even if you had ordered it here in my town, it wouldn't come in until February.

There there, Wendy. As a member of the Justice League, I'll cut you slack. This one time. ;-)

I can do you one better. We forgot to order Nora Robert's Tribute when it came out. Two of us are responsible for all the adult fiction that is ordered, and we both assumed the other person had ordered it. I've never felt like such a dumb ass in my life.

The sad thing is that I used to be a huge Mary Higgins Clark fan. She was my "go-to" author for many years....and then after college I just got away from her work. No real reason why - just stopped reading her.

I still can't believe I totally missed the boat on this one though. Geez.

I had someone ask for it today at the library too and we do have it in the system but it was the first I had heard about it..
