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 really enjoyed A Tale of Two Cities & Great Expectations by Charles Dickens when I read them years ago. And I read several by Ngaio Marsh and enjoyed them too. I love Ernest Gaines books but haven't read Jane Pittman as I watched the film and still remember all the details. Enjoy your loot.

I was hoping you would read the Beekeepers apprentice. I'm a big fan of the series. Not many people enjoy them, I think its too slow for them. I have listened to all of them on CD and love the books and the reader.

It good to read classics. A lot of the old books are still worth reading. Myself though I stick to the newer books. I still try to read new authors as aften as I can.

I've been pating attention to what you add to your blog. I've noticed some of Agathia Christies books that you've been reading. I have been a great fan of hers for years and years.

Yes, to Great Expectations, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Mansfield Park and many others among your library loot, but I have to tell you I still shudder every time I hear the words Mill on the Floss all in a row.

Wow, that's a lot of big classics! Good thing you read faster than pretty much anyone I know. I sure wouldn't be able to finish all those in time to return them :)

Mansfield Park is on my To Do list for reading challenges this year. You picked up WAY more at the library than I did this week...just one of those slow weeks for me. Here's my Loot post:

Fantastic loot this week! Elizabeth Gaskell, Jane Austen, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett are all favourites of mine and Our Mutual Friend is the Dickens that I am most eager to read. Enjoy!
