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!
This week I have picked up another interlibrary loan which means I currently have quite a few out - perhaps too many. It prompted me to ask do you use the interlibrary loan? We are lucky because it is a free service for us, like nearly everything at our library. The only downside to an ILL is that you can't actually renew it!
Here's my Library Loot for this week:
Fables Volume 1 by Bill Willingham - I have been hearing great things about the Fables series of graphic novels for the longest time but my library has never had any of them. I have finally just requested it through ILL so I can see whether they live up to the high expectations I now have!
Obernewtyn by Isobelle Carmody - Shannon from Giraffe Days is hosting a readalong of this series. It will also count for the Aussie Author Challenge and Once Upon a Time so I am definitely planning to read it. Not sure if I will keep up with the schedule to read the whole series before the end of the year or not but we will see!
The Winter Palace by Eva Stachniak - I had this from Netgalley but didn't get to it in time.
The Food of Spain by Claudia Roden - A couple of weeks ago I posted about a Spanish cookbook from an Australian chef. In the comments, someone mentioned that this book had just won a major award as the best cookbook in the world so I couldn't not request it!
