Library Day!

It's been a few weeks since I subjected you all to my library loot. I had a hold expiring today so I HAD to go, and since I couldn't check out the hold without turning in my one late book, I had to do that too. The reason it was late? My boys ripped the cover off and I didn't want to admit I needed to pay for a book. Fortunately, the librarian took one look at it and said that she thought it was likely on it's last legs anyway and I did not have to replace it. Whew.

So, what did I get?

What's new on your library shelf this week?

  1. Once you start The Hunger Games, you'll be able to finish it in just a few hours. Even with the kids around!

  2. Wow, that's a lot of loot. I really want to read one of Sarah Addison Allen's books, so I say start with Garden Spells.

  3. I agree with Kathy, because I've read all of Allen's books. They're quirky, feel-good stories, and I love them for that reason.

  4. Looks like good books! Happy reading!

  5. Glad to see that I'm not the only one who has to check library books out multiple times in order to find time to read them. Enjoy your books!

  6. You are bound and determined to read The Hunger Games, aren't you?! Everyone does seem to love it.

  7. I love a book that is hard to put down, thanks!

  8. Yay for Garden Spells and The Hunger Games and for rereading Sarah Dessen :) Happy reading!

  9. Love some of your library loot. I have one of the healthy bread books and love it. Mine is all messy from my doughy fingers. Love the pregnancy shot. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Have been meaning to comment on this for a long time. Read Hunger Games already! It's a pretty quick read and I think you'll like it. If in six months this comes back around on your Library Loot I'm not sure we can continue being friends. :P (says with must rib poking).
