Library Loot – September 4, 2009

library-loot Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Evaand Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

Well, I didn’t take out too many books from the library this week (although there are already 3 waiting for me to pick them up next week, and I anticipate two more audiobooks will be ready any day).  Here’s what I got:

posed for murder

Posed For Murder by Meredith Cole
Author Meredith Cole was one of the members of last year’s Debutante’s Ball.  I just discovered this blog last spring and am trying to read my way through the rest of last year’s class and am looking forward to reading the books from next year’s class.

catching fire

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Boy am I happy for my library on this one.  I both preordered this book and put it on hold at the library.  Luckily I added myself to the holds list months ago, because I managed to be number six (they bought about eleven books) of 45 or so people.  The copy I preordered shipped on Monday (“Catching Fire” was released Tuesday) from an Amazon warehouse less than 4 hours away.  It took until THURSDAY to get to me!  I can get stuff from Chicago to California in that time, why did it take it so long to get to me from Whereversville, Indiana?  Anyway, my library saved the day and I was actually able to read this on release day.  It is going back today for the next lucky soul to get it.
