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! This week's Library Loot is at Claire's.
Today was a surprise library loot day for me. I haven't borrowed books from library since late September because I still had a pile of books out from three different libraries that I've been working through. I vowed not to borrow anything else until I had either read or returned everything. This morning, I finished that last library book, but since I've been pretty busy lately, I didn't even think about when I'd go next. But today I was quite unexpectedly out doing a quick errand during library hours [which is such a rare occurrence since library hours and my hours don't overlap much these days thanks to budget cuts... ] and I realized I was about to drive right past my library! As soon as I realized I was going to pass the library while it was actually open, I had this strong compulsion to go in and grab a book. I knew exactly which one I would grab, too, since I recently checked online if the library had it. So I literally ran in [I had all of three minutes to pull off this unscheduled library visit!] and grabbed it! Of course I couldn't resist bringing it home with a neighbor. And that's how today's surprise library loot came to be:
Let It Snow
by John Green,
and Maureen Johnson
An anthology of young adult romances for the holidays by some cool authors.
Eon by Allison Goodman
I intended to read one of three different books for my 2011 Big Book Challenge, but still haven't gotten to any of them and have sadly lost a lot of interest in those series. I had Eon on the back of my mind as a possible candidate for the challenge [per Mariana's recommendation, I believe], but it always seemed to be checked out of the library when I thought to look for it. I think this time it was finally meant to be, because there it was today, sitting right next to Let It Snow. Maybe I'll complete the 2011 Big Book Challenge after all!
