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!

Great list, Becky.

Candor is a book I've wanted to read for a while. I had forgotten to put it on my to-read list. Thanks for reminding me.

I loved Once Was Lost so much I chose it for my teacher's book club read for March. Hope you enjoy it too.

The Manga Shakespeare sounds interesting!

Well, this looks like a perfectly reasonable outcome to me... or list, including the leftover loot... :) L.

2001 is good, the film is better but then the film just so happens to be one of the greatest films of all time.

If I ever get through my review books I will be able to go to the library and truly pick what I want. I miss doing that!
