Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader 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 an idiot, I looted a pile of books although I’m going home for the semester break on Sunday. But the weather has been grey and wet and stormy and I wanted a perfect cosy read for that but somehow my own books didn’t look as tempting last night. Also, my uni library has this system where you have to order books online and then they’ll unearth them for you from somewhere and you just have to pick them up. So yesterday I browsed the catalogue and hit order a bit too often, and when I picked up the books today I saw that I had also forgotten that I had ordered another book sometime this week, oops!
Howl’s Moving Castle (Diana Wynne Jones)
Seems like everyone’ read and loved this one, though I hadn’t ever heard of it before I started blogging. Cuppa tea and I’m curling up!
High Wages (Dorothy Whipple)
Persephone, though my edition is a Penguin, with the tiny print, some things never change 😉
Hand in Glove (Ngaio Marsh)
Obviously I had a craving for cosy books, and what could be more cosy than (golden age mystery) murder? ;P
Comedy in a Minor Key (Hans Keilson)
Saw this reviewed somewhere. A Dutch novella, I’m intrigued (also, I love that cover!).
Feminism: A Very Short Introduction (Margaret Walters)
Felt inspired by the Feminist Classics project, but haven’t had the time to read the books with anything like the concentration they deserve. So “very short” appealed to me.
The Theory of Absence: Subjectivity, Signification and Desire (Patrick Fuery)
I’m a nerd, or I would be if I hadn’t actually forgotten that I ordered this book.
About the voting (see previous post): I’m going to give you till Sunday, though the results look really interesting already! My tea’s ready and I’m going to curl up with the cosy books now.
What did you loot from the library this week?
