Well, I turned in a bagful of books and stuff, and I came out with a light load. Yay! I'm not sure it's in time to save me, though.
Meanwhile, my hold shelf offered up:
- Quatrain, Sharon Shinn
I then browsed the picture books, looking for another book from my recommended lists, and found
- The Three Bears, Paul Galdone (hidden in the folk tales section)
- The Wolves in the Walls, Neil Gaiman (recommended as the scariest picture book ever by bookiewookie.blogspot.com)
- Divine Misdemeanors, Laurell K. Hamilton. I think this is the latest in her Fairie Princess series. I expect it to be awful. It was on the new book shelf at the local library, a dying breed since the amalgamation went through. The county library is all about the hold lists; much less serendipity on the front shelves. (This is not a picture book.)
Total Books from Library Elf (counting all the kid stuff that I'm legally responsible for even if I hope not to read it): 76. Stuff on my cards: 70.
I'll go sign up for Library Loot this week. That's a weekly event hosted in turns by Eva's A Striped Armchair (this week's host) and Marg's Reading Adventures where bloggers can share their library finds of the week. Some of them make me look restrained.
