Library Loot

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Marg at The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader and Claire at The Captive Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

It's been a while so even though I didn't bring home much today I thought I'd better make an appearance. In the weeks without the computer my reading really slacked off and I found I was starting books and then discarding them after 50 - 100 pages because I couldn't get interested. So I took all my library books , read and unread, back and have decided having too many waiting to be read isn't a good thing. So I'm trying to be good and restrict the loot although having spent an afternoon on the online library catalogue over Easter I do have quite list now on hold.

Here is today's loot.....

The Ground is Burning by Samuel Black...............In the autumn of 1502, the lives of three of the most famous - and notorious - names in European history intersect in a castle in Italy, with deadly consequences.
The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez.........In a little cafe in one of the most dangerous places on earth. five very different women come together.

Hope you have some great loot too!


  1. I have The Ground is Burning from a recent giveaway that I won and I'm excited to read it! I'm excited to see what you think of it as well!

  2. I've done that before. I've got a huge stack right now. I'm itching to read them all. Now the race to finish them before they are due!

  3. The Little Coffee Shop sounds fabulous! I need to check that out.

  4. I have found I too need to have less books checked out as well. I added the Little Coffee Shop of Kabul.
