Library Loot

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Alessandra that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!

This was a busy week for me and my local library, and I REALLY! Had to use restraint not to get more books out, in fact I made myself leave three books there that I wanted to get when I went there on Friday to pick up a hold. This is also my first Library Loot, I've been meaning to participate, but have been so busy.....

I returned

Twilight - Stephanie Meyer
Slaughterhouse-Five - Kurt Vonnegut

From previous visits I have:

Thirteen Moons - Charles Fraizer
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood - Rebecca Wells
Alls Quiet on the Western Front - Erich Maria Remarque
The Diplomarts Wife - Pam Jenoff

I Checked out:

Of Mice and Men - John Stienbeck (90% sure I read this in high school, so it may be a re-read)
20 000 leagues under the Sea - Jules Verne
The Children of Hurin - J.R.R Tolkien edited by Christopher Tolkien
Half in Love - Justin Cartwright (the book that was on hold for me, the other three books were from be browsing, the online catalogue said the 20000 leagues was not there, but this is a paperback copy, so it may not be catalogued. The other two were also from browsing)

Also I checked out an Ebook on Saturday from the library's collection (I have a problem I know!)
Eclipse - Stephanie Meyer. I'm not a big ebook fan, but I want to finish the Twilight Saga, but I don't want to waste time waiting on the 3 - 4 month hold list. (I didn't like the first book much, but liked it enough to finish the saga.)/

Books I wanted but Left behind:
(Untill next visit at least, have about 100 pages left of thrieen moons, and of mice and men is very short so I should have both of those done by tonight. And I have the day off classes tomorrow, so maybe I'll be able to finish Divine Secrets.....)

Almost Moon - Alice Sebold
The Snow Flower and Secret Fan - Lisa See

Did I mention I LOVE MY LIBRARY? TPL 99 branches at my disposal and if you want a book the deliver it to the library that is less than a five minute walk from my house. This is a smaller library than most in the system, but its soo close! SOOO CLOSE!
Happy Reading!


  1. I read and enjoyed The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood. There is another book that goes along with it but I haven't read it yet. Enjoy your finds :)

  2. Once you read 20,000 Leagues you should follow it up with The Mysterious Island - the two books are related in a way. I really enjoyed the 2nd one but I have yet to read the first, although I LOVE Verne's writing.

  3. I hope you enjoy The Diplomat's Wife. I loved it. Have you read the first book by Jenoff, The Kommandant's Girl? I loved that one, too.

  4. I've hears a lot of great things about the Kommandant's Girl, I'll half to read it after Diplomat's Wife.
