Library Loot!

I’ve decided to get myself out of my reading funk by splurging on some YA books at the library, but going to the library is like going to Costco. You go in for 1 thing and leave with 20 others…

This week’s installment of Library includes:

The Uglies – Scott Westerfeld

The Gospel According to Larry – Janet Tashjian

What I Call Life – Jill Wolfson

Toe-Up Techniques – Janet Rehfelt

The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency – Alexander McCall Smith


Library Loot (4/4/09)

This week’s installment of Library includes:

The Watchmen by Alan Moore, Traitor to His Class:  The Privileged Life and Radical Presidency of FDR, Angels and Ages: A Short Book about Darwin, Lincoln and Modern Life.

Watchmen Traitor to His Class: The Privileged Life and Radical Presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt Angels and Ages: A Short Book About Darwin, Lincoln, and Modern Life

I’m still working my way through my last batch of books. I am bouncing around on so many different genres right now. A lot of the nonfiction books I brought I learned about through NPR, or this past weekend’s CSPAN Book TV. Now to make time for it all. Honestly, I doubt I would read as much if I worked full time. I love my part time status. My 24 hours a week and the occasional on-call shift. I don’t think I can ever go back to working full time.

Library Loot

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Alessandra that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.I’ve seen many of my fellow bloggers already positng library stash finds (Jessica at BlueStocking Society, and Jen at Devourer of Books) I figure I’ll jump on the bandwagon as well. I work in a library on a virtual daily basis and it is impossible to leave work everyday without at least a couple books in my hands. My library loot will be a weekly Friday posting, recapping all my great finds at the library for that week.

This week:


Adam’s Rib (Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy)

Vertigo (James Stewart)

Its Always Funny in Philadelphia (if you haven’t watched it, you must! It is mostly college humor that goes way over the line, but I love it!)


Drood (Dan Simmons)

Shakespeare and Modern Culture (Marjorie Garber)

Belong to Me (Marisa De Los Santos)

Fables, (Graphic Novels books 3,4 & 5)
