Library Loot: January 2 to 8

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!
After not borrowing anything for a couple of weeks, I had to make a quick trip to the library today to pick up a couple of items. I already know that there are a couple more items on their way to me too so I should have loot for next week too. Here's what I got:

The Convent by Maureen McCarthy - I can't remember where I saw the review that prompted me to borrow this book, but it sounded good. This will be one of my early choices for the Australian Women Writers Challenge for this year.

The Magical Christmas Cat anthology - I actually only got this because it has the next instalment of the Psy/Changeling series in it. I am not actually even sure if I am going to read the rest of the stories or not.

Gallipoli: our last man standing by Jonathan King (audiobook) - I have just recently started listening to audiobooks again so I thought I would try listening to one by an Aussie author that I haven't read before and to listen to a non fiction book. Unfortunately my hand/eye coordination isn't what it should be. I thought I was picking up one by Peter Fitzsimmons about The Anzacs. Never mind, hopefully it will still be interesting! It is about the last Australian who served at Gallipoli and traces his life and the changes he saw.

Head over to Claire's blog to share your Library Loot!


  1. Alec Campbell was an amazing man. I'd be very surprised if this book isn't really interesting. To have lived for more than 100 years and his mind remained so sharp. Will be interesting to see how you find it.

  2. I was so happy to pick up new books after having restrained myself through the Christmas period. Enjoy your loot!

  3. I would love to read The Covent! I have a deep fascination with nuns and monks, and the habits and lives they lead. I can't wait to hear if it's a good one. Then I will know if I should buy it!!

  4. Ooh I really want to read The Convent. Been meaning to for months... You'll have to tell me how you find it. I may have to pay a little visit to the bank before I go back to the library (oops).

  5. I love the cover of The Convent! Great looking stack. Happy reading and Happy New Year!

  6. I guess this Gallipoli true tale is different than the movie with Mel Gibson right? So long ago it's hard to recall. Cheers.

  7. I hope you like The Convent Marg, I did :)
