Library Loot - January 23

Library Loot is a weekly event
co-hosted by Eva and Marg
to encourage bloggers to share the books
they’ve checked out from the library.

I picked up thirteen holds at the library yesterday,
in addition to paying off a total of over $30 in fines
on the family's five cards.

Here are the books in somewhat random order:

2010 Newbery Honor Book.
I had put it on hold because of the Newbery buzz
it was getting prior to the announcement.

This one was also getting some Newbery buzz.

As was this one.

Another 2010 Newbery Honor Book.

This one was getting some Newbery buzz too.
It's a Cybils finalist as well.

This book was getting some Newbery and Printz buzz
prior to the announcement. It's also a Cybils finalist.

Same situation with this one.

There was Printz buzz here too.

This is Sarah Dessen's latest book.

This is the latest episode in the Alex Delaware series.

I happened upon this on my goodreads to-read shelf
and thought it'd be a interesting, quick read.

SuziQOregon raved about this one,
so I wanted to read it right away.

This one got some Printz buzz too - and I just love the cover!


  1. Hi Alison,

    I've just started going to the library again after a very long break (I had to complete my PhD thesis). Now I am free from its grasp, I'm reading and blogging about it and really enjoying it.

    The library is great, because I've got too many books already. It also makes me feel kind of... like I'm involved in my community a little more.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog last week and leaving a comment

    :) Amanda

  2. I just realised the comment left a link to an old blog we don't have anymore. This is my book blog:

    I'm new to blogging about books and would appreciate any suggestions.


  3. Shaun Tan! I love his books! You have some other very interesting looking loot as well!

    Hope you enjoy them all!

  6. Wow - some great titles in this long list!
