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. 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!
No leftover loot to report. I decided not to risk the wrath of the renewing gods. Our Mutual Friend, sadly, got returned unread. I did read just enough in it to know that I want to read it at some point. But it's so very long--and the chapters are so very long--that this is more the type of book I need to own than borrow. Hence it will go on my wishlist. Maybe I'll find it for a good price--a price that won't make me feel guilty for owning it and not reading it right away.
Mar's Life by Ben Bova. This is a crazy impulse. I do own the first two Mars books by Ben Bova. But it's kinda silly to think I could get through those two novels...and tackle this one two...in three weeks with all the other library loot I've got below.
Powers by Ursula K. Le Guin
Voices by Ursula K. Le Guin
I'm not sure offhand which comes first, Powers or Voices, but I've got both titles out now. So we'll see how it goes.
In Dubious Battle by John Steinbeck
The Pastures of Heaven by John Steinbeck
To A God Unknown by John Steinbeck
Three more Steinbeck. I'm not sure if my love affair with Steinbeck will last the month of April or not. But I'm willing to keep it going, one setback might be these library books have a bit of the musty feel about them.
People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks.
I *believe* that this is one of Dewey's books. So it should count for that challenge.
Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby
The title says it all.
This is what I want to tell you by Heather Duffy Stone
I opened this one up, and the first sentence got me.
Truancy Origins by Isamu Fukui
Blame the jacket flap. I do.
Jumped by Rita Williams-Garcia
This one looked good to me.
