Library Loot: January 7-13, 2009
Edited to add: I didn’t realise Alessandra already had pretty much the exact same idea. We’ve decided to co-host the event. :) When I mentioned the idea of “Library Loot” days, Sarah said it sounded like a good idea. Before that, I’d planned on just doing it for myself, but I figured I might as well see if there’s interest in doing it as a community meme, like Mailbox Monday. So, I made a simple little button (feel free to make a different one), armed myself with another Mr. Linky code, made my post title sound all official and decided to go for it! If you too want to share your week’s library loot, just write up a post, feel free to steal the button (it’d be extra-awesome if you linked it back to me), and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mr. Linky. While you’re there, you should go visit a couple other bloggers who have left their links. That way we can all see what we’ve gotten from the library recently! And you don’t have to write your post today-any time this week will do. If people want to participate, I’ll keep making it a group thing. And if people don’t, I’ll revel in my library loot all by myself. :p
Here’re my finds this week:
Always going left to right, top row: Cereus Blooms at Night by Shan Mootoo (for the Caribbean Challenge), The Vegetable Dishes I Can’t Live Without by Molly Katzen (a cookbook-I’m going vegan, so I need some new recipes), Zenzele: a Letter to my Daughter by J. Nozipo Maraire (for the What’s in a Name? Challenge)
middle row: Napoleon’s Buttons by Penny LeCouter and Jay Burreson (for the Science Book Challenge), Commodore Hornblower by C.S. Forester (because I’ve missed Horatio!), Gilgamesh, trans. Stephen Mitchel (for the Martel-Harper Challenge)
bottom row: The Book of Imaginary Beings by Jorge Luis Borges (for the Latin American Challenge), Rereadings, ed. Anne Fadiman (for the Dewey Decimal Challenge), City of Oranges by Adam LeBor (for the World Citizen Challenge), and The Discovery of Poetry by Frances Mayer (for the My Year of Reading Dangerously Challenge)
