Library 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.
I started my new job last week and it is going wonderfully! But it is not leaving me much time for reading and I haven’t adjusted my borrowing habits accordingly. Still, maybe having lots of books standing by will motivate me to work more reading time into my new, busier schedule. Here’s hoping!
Drawn from Life by E.H. Shepard – after reading about Shepard’s childhood in Drawn from Memory, I’m really looking forward to hearing more about the later stages of his life.
Endgame, 1945 by David Stafford – a history of the final three months of the war, focusing on the personal stories of nine men and women.
The Duchess War by Courtney Milan – I’ve heard excellent things about Milan’s romance novels and, after reading one last month, I’m happy to try another.
The End of Men by Hanna Rosin – given how often Rosin is quoted in magazines and articles, I suppose it is time to see if her book is really as controversial as its billed to be.
Tell Me Lies by Jennifer Crusie – Maddie was coping pretty well with the adultery, the embezzlement, and the blackmail. Then her old boyfriend came back to town.
The Lovely Day by Dorothy Evelyn Smith – no idea what this is about, but isn’t the cover pretty?
Troy Chimneys by Margaret Kennedy – since reading Lucy Carmichael, I’ve been looking forward to reading more Kennedy and Hilary’s review made this sound excellent.
Welcome to Temptation by Jennifer Crusie – Sophie came to Temptation, Ohio to help her sister make a movie. Now she’s making trouble for the town council, love with the mayor, and lemonade for a murderer.
The Finishing Touches by Hester Browne – a fun reread.
The Baker Street Letters by Michael Robertson – First in a spectacular new series about two brother lawyers who lease offices on London’s Baker Street–and begin receiving mail addressed to Sherlock Holmes.
The New English Garden by Tim Richardson – This is the pretty thing I’ve seen in a long, long time. I might have to buy my own copy after I return this to the library.
