Frank’s Library at Roundwood House

badge-4Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief 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.

When I am stressed, I tend to hoard library books.  I am exceeding stressed just now so the only obvious solution this week to was to add to the hoard.  There are very few surfaces in my home that are not covered in piles of books right now – but it is a peace-bringing sort of choas.

From this week’s additions, I am particularly excited to read The Habsburg Empire (my favourite of all empires).

As is tradition here at The Captive Reader, I am celebrating my (31st) birthday today by sharing my five favourite libraries from the last year of Library Lust posts.  Enjoy!

I have a truly terrifying number of books out from the library right now (though I do like being able to count things by the dozen) so here’s a sampling of some of the most interesting looking ones:
