Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg 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!

My God that's a giant list Becky!!! I'm so glad that you got Breathers :D I think that you'll really love it!! It's a great book! Never Slow Dance With a Zombie looks good too. I should put that one on my readathon list too!

I really want to read Breathers and Never Slow Dance With a Zombie! I wish the library had them... I am trying not to ask them to buy TOO many books, but it is so hard when their selection is lacking...

Melissa said...

That is a HUGE list, Becky. (And I thought *I* was bad... but then, you read faster than I do!) I LOVED Alvin Ho (can't wait to read the second...). Very curious to see what you think. :-)

Holy smokes that *is* a lot of loot! Good luck with the Cybils it looks to be a fabulous (if not a little hectic) time.
