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’m feeling poorly right now, which has made it difficult to focus on reading for the past few days (or anything, for that matter). Hopefully, I should be through this bout in the next day or two and able to concentrate on the excellent books I’ve picked up recently from the library:
Shanghai Grand by Taras Grescoe
The Only Street in Paris by Elaine Sciolino
Frederick the Great by Tim Blanning
In Europe’s Shadow by Robert D. Kaplan
So much Elizabeth Cadell! All inter-library loans. I’ve never read anything by her so we’ll see how these go. I only have the GoodReads summaries to go on but from those alone they look like delightful light reading – no wonder so many D.E. Stevenson fans have recommended Cadell to me.
What did you pick up this week?
