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.
I have just discovered something marvellous: I can access the Calgary library’s e-book catalogue. Finally, my inability to throw away old library cards pays off! It has so many books (like The Rosie Project) that aren’t in the Vancouver library’s e-book catalogue and, most wonderfully of all, it has a 20 book borrowing limit as opposed to 5. I leave next week for a month in Europe and, let me tell you, I will be thankful for those extra 20 books!
I’ve already read (and loved) two of this week’s library picks (The Rosie Project and Attachments) and am now happily working my way through the third:
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion – a wonderfully unique romance about a socially-inept scientist whose methodical approach to finding a wife is upset when he makes friends with a young woman called Rosie.
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – another quirky sort of love story about an internet security officer who falls in love with one of his coworkers after intercepting and reading her emails.
Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman – because I need to read more Gaiman!
