Library Loot, Week 5, February 12


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!

There are plenty of books I've still got at home with me from last week. I'm finished with these--reviews of a few will be coming shortly--but here they are again. Leftover Loot

what a great haul! How do you find time to read all these books.

Great haul, how do you manage not to rack up the late fees?

Becky said...

The past two trips have been mostly picture books. They make for fast reads. I'd never be able to read that many novels in three weeks time.

I'd rather check out too much and end up not reading several from each batch than take the risk of running out before the next trip.

Says the woman with a thousand plus books in her room.

Oh well, I never said I was sane :)

My new years resolution is to not have any library fines! Love the blog, I'm bookmarking it.
