I'm so disappointed at myself! I lost a book, a library book.
I went to 'fess up today, and they're going to try to call the train line to see if it was turned into the lost and found.
The librarians were nice about it, but it's still embarrassing to have to tell three people that you've lost a book, and explain where, on up the line of authority. I filled out a form, and if it was turned in, I'll get to pay to get it shipped back. And if not, I'll pay to replace it, of course.
I feel like such a jerk.
In other news, I wasn't much enjoying The Tale of Genji anyway. It felt like a row of little sexist episodes of a male (that would be Genji) seducing one woman after another. There was a lot of telling how amazingly wonderful Genji was, but I wasn't much convinced, I'm afraid.
I'm sure I'm missing something, but I think that's also part of the narrative style. It was cool that it happened in areas of the old capitol where I've been, but other than that, it didn't do much for me.
Still, I'm disappointed in myself for not being more careful about it!
