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.
A Song for Arbonne by Guy Gavriel Kay – Kay’s newest book, Children of Earth and Sky, is being released next week and, caught up in the excitement of that, I’ve been rereading his books since last week. In the last six days I’ve read River of Stars and The Lions of Al-Rassan and now I’m already half-way through this. Arbonne was the first of Kay’s books I ever read and I think it serves as the perfect introduction to him – and the perfect reminder of all the things I love about his novels.
A Tour of Mont Blanc by David Le Vay – a travel memoir about walking Mont Blanc.
At the Edge of the Orchard by Tracy Chevalier – it’s been quite a long time since I read anything by Chevalier but this was sitting on the shelf at my library today and I thought I’d give it a try.
Not pictured: Inspired by my reread of The Lions of Al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay, I also picked up Moorish Poetry. This is a 1953 translation by A.J. Arberry of an anthology of Andalusian poetry originally compiled in 1243.
