Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and myself 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 posted before about the expanding library service in my area, but I know that I am one of the lucky ones in that my library service isn't being constantly cut back. Just this week Holly from Book Binge posted about her library, and she linked to an article from The Huffington Post which gave some suggestions as to what people can do to help fight cuts in their local library systems. Given that there are some dedicated library lovers amongst us, I thought that the link might be of interest to some of you.
It is end of financial year today here, and for me that means lots of work, and having everything crossed that I have got everything right! It also means that I am not really reading as much as I would like, but that doesn't stop me from picking up more books from the library.
This week I picked up:
The Passage by Justin Cronin - There's been a lot of buzz about this book for a while now. Time to see what all the fuss is about. Lucky for me I am the first person to borrow this.
A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan - This is another brand new book. I read The Keep from this author a few years ago now and liked it, so hopefully I will like this one too.
The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett - I haven't read any of the YA books by Terry Pratchett so I thought I would start with this one.
Sourcery by Terry Pratchett - This is the next book in the Discworld series for me. I was a little surprised that I had to get it as an Inter Library Loan. I might have to do this again for later books in the series too.
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: an Eclipse Novella by Stephenie Meyer - Wasn't intending to buy this, so from the library it is!
Eva will have Mr Linky today so head on over to share your link!
Edited to add Mr Linky! Sorry for the delay everyone.
