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.
Anna and Her Daughters by D.E. Stevenson – another semi-delightful, semi-frustrating effort from Stevenson, this time about a widow who returns to Scotland after her husband’s death with her three teenage daughters in tow.
River of Stars by Guy Gavriel Kay – Kay’s newest book, set in the same world as Under Heaven. I have cleared my schedule today so I can devote myself to reading this. So far, it is magnificent.
A User’s Guide to Neglectful Parenting by Guy Delisle – a short and funny book about parenting from my favourite cartoonist.
The Abominables by Eva Ibbotson – discovered among her papers after her death, this children’s story about the flight of a family of Yetis across Asia and Europe is vintage Ibbotson.
One Thousand and One Nights by Hanan Al-Shaykh – a retelling of 19 stories from One Thousand and One Nights by Lebanese author Al-Shaykh.
High Tide in Tucson by Barbara Kingsolver – A collection of essays.
