Library Loot is a weekly meme hosted by Eva and Marg that encourage bloggers to talk about what books they’ve gotten from their library during the week. Anyone can participate any time during the week, so feel free to write up your own post and link it using Eva’s (or Marg’s) Mr Linky!
I’ve gotten some good books this week, though I’ve read most of them already (whoops). As a (slightly) interesting aside, my library takes all the jackets off the hardcovers, and so a lot of the ones below are new to me. Considering how much importance I place on a book’s cover as to whether or not I’ll actually read the book, not having seen the covers before now is probably a good thing.
Feathers by Jacqueline Woodson (why does it say “by the author of Feathers” on the cover of Feathers? Uh, no shit?). The House You Pass on the Way by Jacqueline Woodson. Pigeon Post by Arthur Ransome.
Three of these were gotten because I’d read some really good blog reviews of them lately (the Renault and two Woodson novels), one I deliberately got because I’d read another book by the author (King Dork) that I found on the new books shelf (Andromeda Klein), three arrived through inter-library loan (the Ransomes), and the others I found browsing through the stacks. I brought eight of them home today and was so overwhelmed I didn’t know where to start! I love having choices, but sometimes it’s too much. (Only slightly joking, here.)
(I ended up picking The Uninvited.)
What did you get from the library this week?
