So last Saturday I went to the library to check out (hehe, check out! get it?) the renovation of the 2nd floor. Everything looked great. It isn’t flashy, but it all looked very nice. They have great new study rooms, and a computer lab they never had before (in addition to the computers scattered here and there throughout the library). I also got a chance to check out the new (I think) ‘Recently Returned’ section.
I grabbed some books, audio books, and a dvd. Without further ado:
Lady Macbeth by Susan Fraser King – from the ‘Recently Returned’ section
Georgia’s Greatness and Jackie’s Jokes by Lauren Baratz-Logsted, books 3&4 in the “Sisters 8” series – because the author asked me to take a look at these books if I got a chance, and mention them if I liked them. I’ll be talking about them later in the week, because I loved them
Going Bovine by Libba Bray – because Justine Larbalestier talked about this book at her signing. The paper version in particular because last week I tried to listen to the audio and hated the narrator so much that I stopped after 7 minutes
Eli the Good by Silas House – because SuziQoregon from Whimpulsive was raving about it recently
Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton – because it was the last book he finished before he died
And the audios:
The Memoirs of Mary Queen of Scots by Carolly Erickson – because it caught my eye on the audiobook shelf
The Invisible Mountain by Carolina de Robertis – because I didn’t get to the book when I took it from the library, thought I’d try for the audio
Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott – because of how Betsy raved about it in Betsy in Spite of Herself
Homer & Langley by E.L. Doctorow – because I haven’t read any E. L. Doctorow and want to
I also took out Season 6 of NCIS on DVD
Any good library loot for you this week? Have you read any of these books?
