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.
You know who is off work all next week? Me!!! No work, no studying, just plenty of time to relax and read as much as I want. Bliss.
I’m Off Then by Hape Kerkeling – a travel memoir by a German comedian about his experiences walking the Camino de Santiago. I picked this up last week, read it right away, and really enjoyed it.
Almost Somewhere by Suzanne Roberts – Another book about walking, this time the John Muir trail in California.
What I Did While You Were Breeding by Kristin Newman – Continuing with the travel theme.
Her Brilliant Career by Rachel Cooke – a group biography of pioneering women during the 1950s. Interested to see how this contrasts with/compliments Perfect Wives in Ideal Homes
The Promised Land by Pierre Berton – time for some Canadiana! Here Berton, who, for the ignorant among you who have neglected your studies of Canadian history, was the most wonderful writer of popular history we have ever had, focuses on the mass immigration to the prairies between 1896 and 1914.
Victoria Four-Thirty by Cecil Roberts – Thomas reviewed this earlier this month and it sounds wonderful.
