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.
Another slightly slow library week for me as I am pulling more books off my shelves to read these days. A good practice but I feel a bit odd coming home from the library with a mostly empty bag!
When in French by Lauren Collins – a memoir from Collins, a writer for The New Yorker magazine, about her experiences as an anglophone married to a Frenchman, living in Geneva. I am fascinated by this sort of foreign language memoir and read it as soon as it arrived.
The Mighty Dead by Adam Nicolson – an exploration of why Homer matters (now and always).
Chance Developments by Alexander McCall Smith – a very light collection of short “unexpected love stories”, each inspired by a photograph.
Mrs Tim Gets a Job by D.E. Stevenson – my inter-library hold on this came in last Friday, just in time for me to read it for the 1947 club.
