I’m incredibly blessed to live in a metropolitan area with a great inter-library system. My own city’s library is pretty extensive, but I also have the option of requesting books from other Michigan libraries through the inter-library loan system. With some Christian colleges in the system, I’m able to get a hold of some solid theological books and other Christian reading that might not otherwise be available in secular libraries. But then I run into the problem of requesting books to borrow when I already have a mountain of my own books that need to be read. I usually rationalize with the response that it keeps me from buying more books, so it’s actually saving me money.
Here are some books I’ve requested that I should be able to pick up in the next day or so.

The Great Theologians: A Brief Guide by Gerald McDermott
How to Choose a Bible Version by Robert Thomas
Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands by Paul Tripp
