Library Loot {10/17/11}

It has been a VERY LONG time since I did a Library Loot post. And, since I feel like this is a lot of books for me, I decided to do one 🙂
(I admit that if I continue doing this meme, it will probably be more of a monthly thing than a weekly thing because, let’s be honest, I don’t read that fast!)

So, here’s what I got:

  • Good Time Girls by Lael Morgan
  • Selected Writings of Heinrich von Kleist
  • Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson
  • My Lucky Life In and Out of Show Business by Dick Van Dyke
  • A Swift Pure Cry by Siobhan Dowd
  • The Victorian Chaise Longue by Marghanita Laski
  • The Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw by Bruce Barcott
  • Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Cooking From the Heart

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader 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!

Library Loot

I haven’t done one of these in a long time. I know Library Loot is supposed to be a weekly thing, but I hardly ever have more than two things out of the library and those are out for a few weeks at a time–what’s the point of posting the same thing for two or three weeks when it hasn’t changed at all.

Today, however, I checked out more books. So I’m finally doing one 🙂

Books
Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys
View from Castle Rock by Alice Munro (for RBC discussion and #2 in Canadian Author Challenge)
The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood (#3 in Canadian Author Challenge)
James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl (checked this out in advance so I can read it on Roald Dahl Day, which is Sept. 13th)

DVD
Repo Men

Yes, it’s not much. But I like to be realistic with my checking items out from the library 😛

Library Loot 6/19/2010

Books
Around the World with Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis (pseud.–my copy says the real author is Edward Everett Tanner)
Jennifer Government by Max Barry
The Secret River by Kate Grenville

These last two books are for my Aussie Author Challenge. I’m going on vacation for a week, leaving next Saturday and I’m very happy to be able to take these with me. Jennifer Government particularly sounds good, as it is a futuristic-dystopic novel, which I always love 🙂

DVDs
Valentine’s Day

BOOK SUGGESTIONS & Library Loot: May 9, 2010

I graduated from university yesterday, which some of you might recall I mentioned a little before. Anyways, I received some gifts as a result, in the monetary form, and decided to spend a small portion on myself. Something I haven’t bought in AGES is a book! I mean, I bought the most recent in a series in January and one for the RBC discussion this past month, but none besides. So I intend to buy myself a few books.
YOUR TASK is to suggest some of your favorite reads to me. I like pretty much anything, contemporary or classic, but am not much for really strong in a particular genre (meaning I don’t like extremely romantic romances or religion-y inspiration). So general fiction is a safe bet. So what are some of your favorite books? What would you recommend I actually purchase? If you could, I would appreciate a little summary, or link to a website about the book, with any recommendations. You can just leave them as comments for me. Spread the word, if you wish. I don’t know how many read my blog, but I want lots of possible books to look into buying.
I REALLY APPRECIATE ANY HELP YOU GIVE ME WITH THIS 😀
