Library Loot - Feb 25 - Mar 3 2010

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and me 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!

Well it's better late than never eh? So a quick mini update, (I'll give one later on my personal blog), but long story short, started a new job, get up early, work, bus home, eat and the there was the Olympics, which gave little time for reading and reviewing. So I'm back!

This will likely be combined library visits, because I think I got one or two books before Feb. 25th, can't remember, I'll include them in. I got some great Loot this past library visit (I even braved a snow storm, to walk to the library just to pick up a book that was on hold for me! (You know you're a Canadian Book-Geek when.....)

Newest Library Loot

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith (This is the one I braved the snow storm for)
Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie - Alan Bradley (spur of the moment grab, its another one of those week long loan books. It seemed like a cute and odd story.)
Miss Chopsticks - Xinran
Feathered Serpent - Xu Xiaobin (Two X authors. I couldn't choose which one, so both came home)
Life of Pi - Yann Martel
The Xibalba Murders: An Archaeological Mystery - Lyn Hamilton
The Cellist of Sarajevo - Steven Galloway

Left Over Loot

The Greenlanders - Jane Smiley
The Thralls Tale - Judith Linderbergh
The Name of the Rose - Umberto Echo

This Weeks Library Loot has been dedicated to the Letter "X"


  1. I loved Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and I went into it expecting to hate it, so that's saying something. Enjoy!

  2. Life of Pi is one of my favorite books so I hope you enjoy reading it. I didn't enjoy Pride and Prejudice and Zombies at all, but you might be one of those bloggers who have had better luck than me.

  3. I've been wanting to read The Cellist of Sarajevo! Enjoy you loot ;0)

  4. Life of Pi is a great book. Enjoy!

  5. Amy - I've wanted to try out PPZ for a while now, I don't know if I'll like it, but curiosity killed the cat, well bookwork in this case.

    Ardentreader - Life of Pi has been on my TBR list for ages. I finally decided to read it!

    Samantha - I had to wait for a good month for this book at the library, it sounds fascinating. Can't wait to read it! (Likely late next week Ill have a review... I hope!)

    Linda - I hope I will enjoy the book! Thanks for coming by.

  6. I have a few of these books, but others are new to me. I really hope that you enjoy Life of Pi and will be checking back to see what you think. Lots of great loot this week! Enjoy them!

  7. I've read Life of Pi a while ago but do remember that I liked it a lot. Hope you enjoy it as well!

  8. Zibilee and Arielle. - I Just finished Life of Pi yesterday (on "Pi day" heh). Great book. My review will *hopefully* be up soon. Have two other reviews from 10 days ago I need to catch up on. Alas, more hours need to be included in the day.
