Library Loot January 14-20

How did I forget about Eva and Alessandra's great meme? After waiting a long five days I went to my local library and picked up all the books on hold for my middle baby and myself. Never mind that I still haven't cracked open even one book from last weeks' Library Loot.

Since school started this week and a required reading of at least 200 pages a week, my personal reading has slowed to almost a complete stop. I'm trying though. If I can get in one hour a day to myself, I will be a very happy girl.






































Don't you just love the Trina Schart Hyman's cover for Little Red Riding Hood? I discovered this version of the fairy tale last year and fell in love with it. Little Red is beautiful. Happy readings!

These look really good. I have Out Stealing Horses on my TBR list. I'll be interested in your comments and thoughts on that one.

I want to hear all about Out Stealing Horses, Vasilly! And I was going to comment on the cover art of Little Red Riding Hood, but you said it! :)

Great haul! I want to read Out Stealing Horses, too, but haven't made my way there yet. I have heard good things, though. Happy Reading!

(Oh, and I hear you on the school thing. When I was in university I hardly ever had time to read anything fun! Now that I am considering going back again, I am trying to get as much reading done as I can!)

I do love the cover of Little Red Riding Hood! And also of Oliver Finds his Way.

Eva said...

I loved How Fiction Works. And that Little Red Riding Hood cover is definitely gorgeous!

Marbel said...

I've found a few thing to add to my list! Thanks!

I feel your pain. My reading and blogging time has been severely reduced since school started back up. :)

I have an award for you here!

Samantha: I have heard so many good things about Out Stealing Horses that I had to check it out!

Maggie: LOL!!

Kailana: Read as much as you can! I miss personal reading so much right now!

Nymeth: The cover of Oliver Finds His Way is so earthy and natural.

Eva: I can't wait to read How Fiction Works. It seems like everyone loves it.

Marbel: You're welcome!

Jessi: Thank you! You rock!

Those are some really great read-to-me books. Did you join the young readers reading challenge?

N.Vasillis said...

Yep, J. Kaye, I'm signed up and finished! But I'm just going to keep adding books anyway. I love children's books.

You're quick! I have my first one ready to post next week. ;) One a month is about all I get around to. Wish I could do more.
