Library Loot: October 17 to 23

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 post this week should be Library Unloot because I have actually done something a little unthinkable this week - I have returned a lot of library books, and unfortunately most of them have been unread! I do feel a bit better though because I don't have so many books clamouring to be read. I still have too many out, but just not as many! In the spirit of that reduction in books, I actually only borrowed one book as well.

Hotel Iris by Yoko Ogawa - Sometimes I still get surprised by the books I can find at my library. I saw a review of this at Sam Still Reading and I thought I might have to request this by interlibrary loan, but no, it was onthe shelf just waiting for me to pick it up!

What loot did you get from the library this week? Share your link below:


  1. Good for you, Marg! I have trouble returing books unread sometimes but whenever I do I end up feeling relieved. And that is why we use the library - they will still be there for us to check out once again when we have the time to do them justice!

  2. I recently took a few back unread too. It's hard but hopefully you won't have trouble getting them again when you are ready to read them.

  3. This one does look interesting, and I am surprised to see only one in your stack this week. I hope it's a good one!

  4. I can't remember the last time I stepped in my library... It's crazy...

  5. Wow, I'm glad I inspired you. Hope you enjoy it, I love her books.

  6. Hotel Iris is a book I'm still wanting to read. Hope you enjoy it! It's better to return books that you have no time reading than to feel guilty every time you look at them :s Besides, think of the people that have been waiting for their holds, how happy they'll be for you returning them :)
