I´m getting either better or worse with my library loot, I´m not sure which yet. I finally thought of using the university library for fun books as well as research. And they´ve actually got a few Persephone classics but in other editions. And they´ve got lots of other great books but I´m trying to pace myself.
I´ve only got two books out of the uni library but I´m going to the other library later today to return some books. I´m doing the library loot post now because I´m hoping that it´ll convince me not to check out more books. Call me an optimist! 🙂
So here are the two (!) books I looted this week:
I got Sweet Danger by Margery Allingham, which was published in 1933, for Nymeth´s 1930s challenge (it runs for another month and you only have to read one book, so go sign up if you haven´t!). I´m very curious about his one, as Allingham is supposed to be one of the British queens of crime (although Agatha Christie is my reigning queen of crime!). I know, another crime book, this blog is getting very predictible and boring!
I recently read my first Nancy Mitford book, Love in a Cold Climate, and completely fell for Mitford´s wit and humour. And then I found The Letters of Nancy Mitford & Evelyn Waugh at my uni library. I´ve taken a quick look, and their letters seem to be amazing, can´t wait to read this one.
What did you loot this week?
