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!
I managed to squeeze a quick visit in to the library tonight, which was lucky because my holds were beginning to pile up! Be sure to share your link so we can all come and check out your loot!
Here's what I got this week:
Persuasion by Jane Austen - I mentioned in my goals for 2010 that one of the things I wanted to do this year was to read some Jane Austen. Aarti suggested that I start with Persuasion, and so I requested it. Hopefully I will get to it soon.
The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien - I might have been a little excited when I finished reading The Hobbit last week. Not only did I read the book, but I also requested the graphic novel, which was illustrated by David Wenzel.
The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien - This time the audio book. Beth from BethFishReads mentioned that the audio book version she listened to was awesome, so I thought I might try to listen to it again. The thing is, there is absolutely no information on the version I got from the library . This isn't the cover that I have, I don't know who the narrator is and can't even tell you whether this is an unabridged or abridged version. Guess it will all become clear eventually.
The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong - This is reloot, and I hope to actually read this one this time! Another one that I have a different cover for from the library. Last time I borrowed the book it was this cover though!
Tempting Evil by Keri Arthur - The third book in the Riley Jensen series.
Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Borrowed this in anticipation of the next part of the Lord of the Rings Readalong.
The Struggle by L J Smith - Next book in the Vampire Diaries!
Graceling by Kristin Cashore - Reloot! I have heard such good things about this author!
Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong - Next book in the excellent Otherworld series.
Reality Killed the Video Star by Robbie Williams - I was a big Robbie Williams fan from way back, although I wasn't all that fussed about what I heard from the last album. I am borrowing this one to see whether it is worth buying or not!
And just for the fun of it, here is the video of my favourite Robbie Williams song - Angels
