Library Loot: July 1-7, 2009
Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by myself and Marg 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!

I promise I’ll add a vlog tomorrow. My car’s been in the shop (boo!), and my parents are on vacation so I have no other car to borrow, which means I haven’t been able to get to the library and grab the books waiting for me. It’d be kind of weird to do a vlog with no books, but the shop has promised it’ll be ready either later today or tomorrow, so I’ll be zipping over to the library and then happily vlogging about all of the great books. I even painted my fingernails in preparation (actually, vlogging has helped to break the horrible habit of biting my nails, which I pick up whenever I move and am therefore stressed), hehe. Until then, enjoy the short version via covers and links. As you can tell, I’ve once again gone into a library binge phase. I do have a defense, but I’ll save it for the video!
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan (originally for the OUAT challenge, now just for fun!), Black Juice by Margo Lanagan (because Tender Morsels was incredible), Tree: a Life Story by David Suzuki and Wayne Grady (for the Science Challenge)
Pemba’s Song by Marilyn Nelson and Tonya Hegamin (it’s a ghost story!), You Can’t Get There From Here by Gayle Forman (love travelogues, especially by women), Flygirl by Sherri Smith (because I really enjoyed Lucy the Giant)
Scott Pilgrim Vol. One by Bryan Lee O’Malley (because of Chris), Betsy and the Great World by Maud Hart Lovelace (because of Kate’s shared excerpt), Ray in Reverse by Daniel Wallace (because I love him)
The House You Pass on the Way by Jacqueline Woodson (GLBT Challenge), Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn (Southern Challenge)
