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!
It was a very exciting week for me last week. I got my first ever Inter Library Loan (ILL)! I actually didn't think I would get it because when I was filling in the online request it asked how much I was willing to pay and it said that the maximum cost could be up to almost $20 which I thought was a bit steep, but instead of filling it in I just left it blank. I have to say though that I was a bit surprised when I picked the book up from my library as they add a cover to it. It made me laugh a little because you can't even tell which book it is underneath the cover. It's very green!
Eva was supposed to be back from holidays last week, but there hasn't been a new post from her yet, so if there is no Mr Linky up by the time I get up on Thursday I will add one to this post.
My loot this week:
Honolulu by Alan Brennert - I have been wanting to read this author's first book, Moloka'i for ages, so when I saw that this book had been added to the catalogue I requested it.
Tears of the Moon by Nora Roberts - I read the first book in this trilogy, Jewels of the Sun, a couple of weeks ago.
The Royal Harlot by Susan Holloway Scott - Normally I don't read books out of order, but I have read the third book in this series, The French Mistress, not too long ago. Now I am going back to the beginning to work my way through. This is the book that is hidden underneath the green ILL cover.
Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris - As soon as I see the next Sookie Stackhouse book has been added to the library catalogue I request it. I was a bit slow this time, but it has finally come in!
Annette Vallon by James Tipton - One thing I don't do very often at the library is browse, but the other night I was walking past the end shelves where they display books and this one caught my eye.
The Princeling by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles - the next book in the Morland Dynasty series of books. The cover I had is from about 30 years ago and is fabulous, but for the time being I will use this one. I will find the real one eventually though.
Only one reloot this week:
Grave Goods by Ariana Franklin - the third book in the Adelia series of medieval mysteries.
Edited to add Mr Linky.
