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!
Before I start my Library Loot post for this week, I want to just send my best wishes to the people of Far North Queensland as they deal with Cyclone Yasi. The images that we have been seeing of the size of this storm, and the pictures that we are seeing now showing the strength of the wind are very, very scary.
Now for my post.
I am going through withdrawals this week. My main library branch is closed for three days this week while they refurbish. I think that they are putting in self check outs, but I am not 100% sure of that.Of course, now that it isn't open I need to go now!
Again, I know that I am lucky that my library system is growing and improving, but it isn't that way everywhere. If you are in the UK, did you know that February 5 is Save Our Libraries Day. There are a number of ways to get involved so if you value libraries be sure to lend your voice.
Luckily I managed to find time to go to the library before it closed and picked up the following loot:
Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness - The third and final book in the Chaos Walking trilogy.
The Homecoming by JoAnn Ross - I have been reading quite a lot of contemporary romance this year and I was looking for a new author to try and someone recommended this one.
Fingersmith by Sarah Waters - Over at Historical Tapestry we are all challenging each other to read one book this year. Kelly chose this book for me.
The Measure of a Man by Sidney Poitier - I actually read this book a few years ago, but it a bookclub selection so I need to refresh my memory before Monday.
Wallaby Track by Aaron Fletcher - the next book in the Walkabout series.
Head over to Clare's blog to share your Library Loot for this week.
