Library Loot: July 31 to August 6

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!
What would we do without our libraries? Whilst I would still have more than enough to read (and I would probably get a lot more of the books I buy read) there is no doubt I would also miss out on a lot of pleasure.

Here is the loot I got this week:

A Duke Never Yields by Juliana Gray - Next book in the Affairs by Moonlight series

Persuasion by Jane Austen  (audiobook) - About time I read my second Jane Austen book ever!

A Song of Fire and Ice by George R R Martin (audiobook) - I figured I wasn't going to get to the books anytime soon so I would try the the audiobook. Only problem is that it is more than 30 hours of listening time and I am not sure I am going to get through it all before it is time to return, but I will give it a go, even if I have to sit in the car in the driveway just listening.

The Crossroads Cafe by Deborah Martin - Can't remember why I requested this one. Must have just seen something somewhere and went and requested it.

More than a Dream by Harrison Craig - Harrison Craig was the winner of the Australian version of The Voice this year. The album has a bit of a crooner feel to it - think Michael Buble kind of music but it is easy listening. I have embedded one of his original songs below.

Head over to Claire's blog to share you Library Loot links.


  1. I've learned to love audiobooks and I do love the "A Song of Ice and Fire" books but I'm not sure I could handle 30 hours! Good luck and enjoy your loot!

  2. I haven't attempted The Game of Thrones series because of the size of the books. I don't think I could listen to 30 hours. Enjoy!

  3. Thanks for the video of Harrison Craig. He is very good. Enjoy your loot!

  4. Hallo, Hallo!

    I realise I dropped a personal email to you about *Library Loot* only the other day, but I sort of wanted to include my adventures on Monday night in my first attempt at participating in this, and I wasn't sure the specifics of how to join in!? I grabbed your badge, but that is about as far as I knew to do!

    As such: do we rotate this on Wednesdays OR when exactly? And, if we didn't get to post about a Monday before Wednesday, can we include Monday? Do I need to copy your info paragraph into each post or describe it in my own words? I always refer a badge back to the originating blog!

    Thanks heaps!

  5. Hi Jorie

    I have posted some answers to your questions in my Library Loot post for this week. If you have any other questions let me know.
