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!
My library was closed for four days over the Easter period. Now, I know that librarians are as entitled to a long weekend, but oh my goodness, I went through withdrawals on Saturday especially given that it wasn't really a public holiday on that day.
Never mind. They were open today and this is what I got:
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson - This is for the readalong that Carl is running as part of the Once Upon a Time challenge. The first questions went up yesterday so I am a bit behind but hopefully I will be able to catch up this week.
The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson - I read Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes last year and had checked the library catalogue a number of times to see if this book was on there, but it wasn't. That is, until a couple of weeks ago.
The Unseen by Katherine Webb - For an upcoming blog tour. I read, and liked, Webb's previous book, The Legacy, last year.
State of Wonder by Anne Patchett - Also for an upcoming blog tour. I went and heard Ann Patchett talk at the Melbourne Writer's Festival last year and thought she was really good to listen to.
84 Charing Cross Road (DVD) - Read the book earlier this year so I thought it would be fun to watch the movie adaptation while I have a few days off work.
Claire has Mr Linky this week, so head on over to share your link to your Library Loot post!
