Library Loot

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva 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!

Here's what I have checked out at the moment:

The House on the Strand by Daphne du Maurier
(A haunting time travel story with history, romance, horror & suspense...set in the 14th Century)

The Thanksgiving Day Murder
by Lee Harris (More than a year ago Natalie Gordon vanished at the Thanksgiving Day Parade. The police and a private investigator still have no leads. When Natalie's despairing husband pleads with ex-nun Christine Bennett to help, she can't say no.)

Lady Fortescue Steps Out
by Marion Chesney (The unconventional life of poor relations in Regency England. Normally poor relations are shuffled around among the more prosperous of the family...often destined to be companions to demanding, elderly women. Lady Fortescue comes up with a daring plan to start a hotel run by poor relations like herself.)

The Deathday Letter
by Shaun David Hutchinson ("The clock is ticking...Ollie can't be bothered to care about anything but girls, until he gets his Deathday Letter and learns he's going to die in twenty-four hours. Bummer.")

I'd also like to mention my Library Bookstore haul (our library has an in-house bookstore where donated used books, library discards, CDs, DVDs, and magazines can be had at bargain prices and all proceeds go to the library):

Abra-Cadaver by Christopher Monig (A delightful little pocket size 1st edition from 1965. I collect these editions and always snatch them up whenever I see them.)

Plus three CDs:
Gems from the Early Years (Frank Sinatra & Harry James)
Saxophone Masterpieces (Eugene Rousseau)
The Harp Duet (Joe & Shuhsin)

We get all our books from the library and put a picture of them in our header on our book blog.
