Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader 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 have a confession to make. I *may* have told my librarian a little fib when I went to the library this week.
My library has a limit of 60 items out at a time, which you really would think would be enough but apparently not! You see I had the maximum amount of books out, with only 2 to return but 4 to pick up. When I took the books back I kind of intended to only pick up 2 and then I would pick the other 2 up later, but the problem was that I couldn't decide which 2 to leave behind. I therefore thought I would try my luck and see what happened.
I got up to the counter and the librarian scanned the first two items, and then she scanned the third item and it came up with the warning that I had reached the maximum, to which I replied that I had just returned a couple of items, knowing full well that they must have already been scanned in.
Tell me, which of these books would you have left behind:
The Distant Hours by Kate Morton - It feels as though we have been waiting ages for this latest book from Kate Morton! Looking forward to reading it.
Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan - It's a little bit amusing that I know exactly who read this book before me! Bree from All the Books I Can Read happened to mention that she was reading this book from our local library, and I realised that I was next in line for the book! We haven't met yet, but I am sure it won't be too long before we do, seeing as we live so close!
Temptation Ridge by Robyn Carr - I am inhaling this series at the moment. I start the next book and just keep reading until I finish it, and then request the book after that! I have already read this one, and I am pretty sure that you will see another book from this series in my loot next week too!
Anna by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles - There's a bit of a sad story associated with this book. I actually started reading it a few weeks ago, but it got to due date, and I couldn't extend anymore,and I still had a couple of hundred pages to go. I did however have a plan, and it was a good one. I would return the book first thing in the morning, then request it again once I got to work and then I would be able to pick it up either that day or the next and I could just keep reading. The only problem is that they put the book into mending once it was returned. I still requested it, but then they removed both this book, and the other two books in the trilogy from the catalogue, so I had to request this one through interlibrary loan, and I will have to do the same for the rest of the books in the trilogy as well!
What loot did you get from the library this week?
