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.
Swiss Sonata by Gwethalyn Graham – this is not the first time I’ve checked this book out but hopefully this will be the time I actually get around to reading it. Graham’s Earth and High Heaven is an extraordinary book and this, her first book, was equally celebrated when it was published in 1938.
The Library Book – a collection of pieces from more than twenty British writers (including Stephen Fry, Alan Bennett, and Zadie Smith) celebrating libraries and librarians.
The Runaway Princess by Hester Browne – I read Swept Off Her Feet and The Finishing Touches by Browne last month, just when this title was being released. I enjoyed them both so much that I placed a hold on this immediately, excited to have found a really good chick-lit author.
