Library Loot: May 15 to 21

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 only got one book in my loot. The rest are TV series and a music CD. The only problem is that the TV series are popular and so you only get them for a week. I managed to watch all of one, but not the other. I will have to rerequest that one!

Here's what I got:

Game of Thrones (season 1) - When season 1 of Game of Thrones was first shown on pay TV here, I was recording each episode with the intention of watching them all. I kind of lost steam after about 5 episodes and didn't watch anymore after that. Because I could only borrow this for a week, I ended up watching this over the weekend.

Downton Abbey (season 2) - After being totally addicted to season 1 of Downton, I didn't even watch the first episode of season 2. I will need to rerequest this one as I wasn't expecting both this and Game of Thrones to come in at the same time and I didn't have time to watch both of them last weekend.

Must Like Kids by Jackie Braun - I think I saw a positive review for this at Dear Author which prompted me to put the request in for this book.

The Best of Ricky Martin - Ricky Martin is one of the judges on The Voice here in Australia. He is just so charming and good looking and charming. Seeing him on The Voice reminded me that I haven't actually listened to any of his music for a long time!

What loot did you get this week? Share your link in Mr Linky below:


  1. I just added some Ricky Martin to my iPod. His music always makes me happy. Enjoy your loot.

  2. OH, I forgot about the movie I got. Grrrr.

  3. I love both "Downton Abbey" and "Game of Thrones" but can understand how trying to watch both in one week could be overwhelming, no matter how much you enjoy them. That's a lot of TV! Hope you're able to get the "Downton Abbey" DVDs again soon and finish them off.

  4. Downton is great fun. I need to get into Game of Thrones as I hear that is great as well.

  5. Thanks for hosting Library Loot. Both of those TV series have been so popular! Enjoy!

  6. I think HBO has done an awesome job with Game of Thrones.
