Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by myself and Eva 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!
I did mention a few posts ago that one of the things that I did while I was on my enforced internet break was get a new book case! I have been meaning to for at least 2 years, but it never quite seemed to be the right time! When I was at Ikea I did think that I was picking up the boxes for just a bookcase (with no space for a TV) but apparently not. I only figured that out as my friend and I were putting it together, but in the end I am thinking that I am pretty happy with it the way it was. So here is the new bookcase, you will see that there still seems to be a fair bit of space. In theory I should really reorganise the bookcase in the other room as that is stacked with books in every available space, but the books that are in here are all books that were sitting around in piles in the lounge room, precariously on top of the other bookshelf, or in my bedroom, or on the kitchen bench etc etc.
My point in mentioning this now is Library Loot related because the three cubes on the right hand side are my library books shelves. I don't think that it looks too bad, until you realise that two of those three cubes are already double stacked!
The only thing missing from this Library Loot post is the library books! I have literally just got back from picking up the following books:
Winston's War by Michael Dobbs. I have expressed numerous times my aversion to reading a series out of order, but this is one series that I am doing it with. I have read the second and fourth books, and this is the first. I have borrowed this one a few times but never managed to actually get to read it. Maybe I will get to this time.
Remember When by Nora Roberts/J D Robb - This is the next book in the In Death series which I really enjoy. From what I can gather this book is something of a hybrid between a normal Nora Roberts and the futuristic cop stories that form the J D Robb books. I have no idea how this is structured so it will be interested to see how she has managed it.
Her Secret Pleasure by Gaelen Foley - I seem to have picked up quite a few romances this visit. This is the second book in the Spice trilogy.
First Comes Marriage by Mary Balogh - Another book that I have borrowed before but had to return because someone else had requested it. The first book in the Huxtable series.
Dream Hunter by Sherrilyn Kenyon - next book in the Dark Hunter series.
Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas - I have really enjoyed both of this author's previous books, Private Arrangements and Delicious, and this appears to be another unusual setting.
