*I am LOVING Ray Bradbury right now. I want to read anything and everything he's written. I am discovering just how GREAT short stories can be!
**In anticipation of Forge, the second novel, I am hoping to reread Chains.
***This will be my second Connie Willis. When I saw it was about time travel, I had to get it! There's a second novel that will conclude the story coming out soon.
****Because of the National Book Award Finalists being announced--Young People category, of course.
*****Because I enjoyed Gareth Hinds' graphic novel Odyssey so very much!
******Who knew that the Muppets now star in graphic novels?! I saw Muppet Robin Hood was a nominee in the Cybils this year, and so that's how I "discovered" these others.
*******Because I was in the graphic novel section and couldn't help browsing.

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire 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!

I've been dying to read The Wind in the Willows again!! One of my favorites as a kid. Such a gem of a book, huh? And yay for The Penelopiad :D It's really good! It's the only Atwood I've read actually.

The only Bradbury I've read is Farenheit 451, but it's one of my all time favorite books! And a classic dystopian, a book every book lover should read!

I'd like to read more of his stuff, eventually!
