Library Loot, May 20-26, 2009

Wow, two posts in one day!  And one more ready to publish later!  I AM ON A ROLL PEOPLE! 

These always seem fun, so I thought I’d try doing a Library Loot post. I seem to go about once a week, so I have no shortage of material for it!  Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Alessandra that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. 

A dangerous activity indeed.

So, I just got back from the library.  I went in with 7 books to return, 6 on hold, and a few on the list in my mind.  I came out with a lot more than 6 but here are the important ones.

The Arrival by Shaun Tan because in case you didn’t notice, I ADORED Tales From Outer Suburbia and want MORE TAN.

The Haunted Playground by Shaun Tan.  See above.  Ditto.

The End of Mr. Y by Scarlett Thomas.  I can’t remember where I saw it, but I saw that Neil Gaiman was reading it. Good enough for me.

My Most Excellent Year: a novel of love, Mary Poppins, & Fenway Park by Steven Kluger.  Reasons why forthcoming…

The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill.  Just for the heck of it.  And I really like that title.

What They Always Tell Us by Martin Wilson.  Again reasons forthcoming.  Ooooo Heather’s being all mysterious…  😀

All total I have 17 books out from the library.  Wow…that’s just…jaw-dropping.  And a little bit shameful, when you think of how many of them I’ll actually READ.  But only a little bit.

  1. That's not shameful! I have a ton out too. I'm hoping to read all of them but I doubt it. I just looked to see if The Playground was at my library and it's not. *sigh*

    Happy reading!

  2. Cool! When you posted about Tales from Outer Suburbia I didn't put Tan together with The Arrival. I haven't read it yet, but my friend Susan has raved about it! I can't wait to read it. And The Various Haunts of Men looks great, too. Enjoy! I'm off to add to my own library list.

  3. I lurve Shaun Tan too! I'm on the waiting list for the Playground book (The Arrival was awesome).

    If you think 17 is shameful, you don't even WANT to know how many books I have out! lol
