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!
Eva has Mr Linky this week, so be sure to head on over and share what you picked up from the library this week.
Once again I have had a very small week in terms of the number of items picked up from the library. I have been very, very controlled about requesting books whilst I am doing the Reading Our Own Bookshelves challenge, but given that we are getting close to the end of the month, I think I can start requesting some more now. I have managed to get my library list right down though, so I am going to try not to go too crazy and get back up to 60 items out too quickly. Did you notice that? Not that I won't get back up there at all, but rather that it won't happen too quickly. I know my own bad habits!
Here are the two items I did get:
The Ice Cream Girls by Dorothy Koomson - I have been a big fan of Dorothy Koomson since I first read My Best Friends's Girl (my first and still my favourite) so as soon as I saw that there was a new book coming out, and that my library had ordered it, I had my name on the list. Since then I have read a review which talks about some of the subject matter, and I am not as sure that I will like it, but we will see how it goes.
Young Victoria (DVD) - It is very rare for me to get to the movies to see something that isn't for kids. I meant to go and see this one, but it didn't happen.
Just for fun, here is the trailer for Young Victoria. Hopefully I will get to watch it over the weekend.
