- 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.
Now that finals are over and classes have ended, I find myself swimming in ample reading time. The fact that I’d been looking forward to this moment for months doesn’t matter, because I’ve used this time not for reading but for tossing out note cards, trying and failing to figure out where my texts books should go, and napping. Precious, beautiful sleep. No more staying awake until 3 or 4 in the morning working on some paper that’s bent on ruining me. No more reading chapters about diseases and medical terminology. No more cursing test dates with they coincide. No more classes and now more college-stress. At least not for the next three months–a thought I’m still basking in.
In the mean time, I moseyed on down to the library earlier this week — only two books this week, but they’re books I’ve been eager to start:
My list of books for review just hit the double digits, and the publication and archive dates are all cramped around each other. That being said, I have no idea if I will have time to read these, yet alone review them — though of course I prefer to do both! I was lucky that my request for Openly Straight put me in at number one for holds, so I’d hate to walk away from Konigsberg’s book. Eleanor & Park is one I’ve come close to buying a few times, and while I’ve sided against a purchase for now, I’ve had my eye on it since before it was released. I had hoped to have a “Rainbow Rowel reading week,” but the requests on Attachments spiked and… I’m waiting and waiting. Patiently.
With my new library books checked out–not to mention those ARCs and my current re-read–I have a lot of reading planned out. Which book(s) do you plan on reading this weekend?
Happy Friday and happier reading, everyone!
