Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Marg @ The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader and Claire @ The Captive Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they have checked out from the library.
Isn't it always the way that when you visit the library knowing exactly what you want....you can't find it. Today I wanted contemporary crime, something up to date to read if I needed a break from the Victorian era, and nothing I saw appealed. I settled for Bess Crawford and then added two more, totally unnecessary, titles to the pile I already have waiting as potential Victorian Celebration reads.
Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome.......the timeless comedy of an eccentric journey up the Thames by rowing boat. This edition has gorgeous illustrations by Paul Cox.
With Anthony Trollope in New Zealand 1872 edited by A.H.Reed......Trollope entertains with his skilful, lively and fairminded impressions of NZ and its people. The editor uses contemporary newspapers and other sources to accompany AT on his travels and discover what NZ thought of him!
An Impartial Witness by Charles Todd......the second in the series featuring Bess Crawford, a nurse during WWI.
