overdoomed

Show me a library book, and I'll show you an overdue fine waiting to happen.
"There really is no excuse for overdue books," I scolded myself, rummaging for my wallet. "They can be renewed online for goodness sakes. And the library even emails a warning."
Nevertheless, there I stood at the counter, bank card in hand.
It seems fitting that my grandson asked his mother the other day when the books he had checked out would be "overdoomed."
