Library Loot - January 20-26 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!
I don't have a lot of loot this week, but I do have a couple of books waiting for me to pick up at the library that I am very excited about, but more of that in next week's loot. Eva has the link this week, so head on over to her blog to add your loot to Mr Linky so we can all see what you have acquired from your library this week.

Beside a Burning Sea by John Shors

John Shors is a author I have wanted to read for a long time, ever since I saw the first reviews of his first book, Beneath a Marble Sky. My library still doesn't have that book, but when I saw that they did have this one, I snapped it up.

The Goat who Sailed the World by Jackie French

Recently I read The Night They Stormed Eureka by Jackie French, and liked it a lot. When I was looking at her backlist I noticed a series called The Animal Stars, which features animals that have been witness to major events in history.

The Lonesome Dove DVD Collection

Over the last few weeks I have been watching the mini series adaptation of Larry McMurtry's Comanche Moon, after having read the book last year. I have such fond memories of watching Lonesome Dove many years ago, and I hope that I am not disappointed when I watch it again. I haven't quite decided if I am going to watch it this time or whether I will just watch Dead Man's Walk and then return it. I read Dead Man's Walk a while ago, and I am planning to reread Lonesome Dove soon, so I might not watch Lonesome Dove until I have reread it.

And that's my loot for this week!


  1. Enjoy your goodies Marg! The cover of Beside a Burning Sea is really pretty and I love the title!

  2. I've noticed those Shors books and wondered about them, magnificent covers by the way. I look forward to seeing what you think. The goat book sounds like a fun read. I may do a late LL post but I did a huge Waiting on Wednesday post (upcoming new releases) and I'm tuckered right out. Enjoy your loot.

  3. Enjoy your library loot. I hadn't heard of those books before. It's so interesting to see what everybody else is reading!

  4. Great loot! I have Beside a Burning Sea and I hope to get to it soon.

  5. Oh! I loved Lonesome Dove, both the book and the movie, so I hope it lives up to your remembrances of it! I had also not heard a lot about this particular Shors book and will be curious to read a review on it. Great stuff in that pile this week!

  6. Those animal books sound really intriguing!

  7. They do don't they Eva. This goat is witness to the First Fleet arriving in Australia I think.

    Thanks Zibilee, it was just a small pile, but good quality!

    Stephanie and Amy, I would be happy to just sit and look at the cover of Beside a Burning Sea. Who knows, the contents might be good too! lol!

    Sandra, you can do your Library Loot any time during the week, or even just combine two weeks worth of library loot into next week's post!
    ColleenFL, that's the best thing about Library Loot! Seeing all these books you've never heard of!

  8. Lonesome Dove! Brilliant show

    what did you think of Comanche Moon Moon?

  9. Great loot! The story of Captain Cook's goat - what a great idea telling the story from an animal's perspective!
