Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Alessandra 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 any time during the week-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky. And of course check out what other participants are getting from the library.
Okay, I seriously was not going to go to the library this week. I had looked at my towering stack of books that I already had checked out and at my review books stack and decided I would skip a week. And that it wouldn't hurt me one bit. But then I had to stop over at Eva's blog and see what everyone else found at the library and I was bitten by the library bug. I realized I couldn't not go but if I went I would just pick out maybe one great book. Great intentions, huh? I ended up walking out with 6 and will probably be kicking myself later but right now I'm happy :) No pictures this week though because I'm supposed to be working on my resume and other various items for possible fall teaching jobs.
- Bitten by Kelley Armstrong- I believe this is considered urban fantasy (correct me if I'm wrong) and fits in well with some of my challenges.
- The Color Purple by Alice Walker- I found this while browsing through the YA Classics section and couldn't pass it by.
- Night by Elie Wiesel- I've been meaning to read this one for awhile now. I'm currently reading America and the Age of Genocide and the section I just finished was over WWII. Hence, my renewed interest in reading more from this time period.
- The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde- One of my reading groups is reading this (I believe) and if they aren't I've decided I still want to :)
- Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi- I've gone over to the dark side and decided to try a graphic novel. I also picked up the second one and will use these for my year of reading dangerously.
- Persepolis 2 by Marjane Satrapi- I picked up both of these because I heard you are supposed to read them together. I went to a library that I usually don't go to a lot and figured I should get both while I was there.
So that's it for me. Once again, too many books but obviously I haven't let that stop me. I'm reading Ramses: Volume I by Christian Jacq right now and am loving it. I am so glad that I picked this one up and will be reading the rest of these. Still plugging away at America and the Age of Genocide as well. Happy reading!
