Library Loot: First Trip in May
I had less library loot posts in April, but I think I actually did better at getting the library books read. Nine books out of twenty, I think. And three I'm carrying over into May. Do you know what you're going to check out ahead of time? Or do you pick up books on impulse? Do you love to browse?
I picked up the Alcott and the Oates for a challenge. But the rest were more impulsive than planned.

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!
