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.

Wow! That's a lot of books! I haven't been to a library since around March... but you see I have so many books on my Mt Everest TBR, that I'm not allowing myself to venture anywhere near one until I get through some of my 1,000+ collection in the next couple of years... well, that is *if* I get through some of this collection and it stops growing! :P

Claire Tomalin's bio of Dickens should be a fine read. I read her bio on Samuel Pepys and it was excellent so I'd expect this one to be just the same.
Robinson Crusoe is excellent even though written in the 18th century prose and a bit laborious in its use of language. But the story itself is superb.
I didn't like Hornblower for all it's reputation!

Someone has a lot of Connie Willis in their future!

Enjoy your loot!
