Another Library Run

badge-4I keep getting books, sometimes I read them, occasionally I think about what I read, and even more rarely I write about it. So as a progress of my emotional journey, this blog is kinda a failure. But as a progress of the books coming into my house -- WIN!

Also, I taught someone else how to use the robot slave (thank you Leonard Richardson) Automated Book Return. Well, I showed her the difference between Bar Code Up and Bar Code Down, which should make the change from Always Fails to Mostly Succeeds.

Because I am still successfully on the Triple Dog Dare I limited myself to things from the hold shelf, although I did browse through a picture book. Oh, and I got an Iliad for my son, the budding classicist.

Four Cybils books:
Forest Has A Song Poems to Learn by Heart Donner Dinner Party Hereville

Poems to Learn By Heart, Caroline Kennedy (poetry)
Forest Has a Song, Amy Ludwig Vanderwater (poetry)
Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite, Barry Deutsch (graphic)
Donner Dinner Party, Nathan Hale (graphic)

And a Best of the Best Pick, along with books for my son:

The Wanderings of Odysseus The Iliad Carter's Big Break Demon Eyes

Carter's Big Break, Brent Crawford (10 Ten Audio)

Demon's Eyes, Scott Tracey, sequel to a book we read last year
The Wandering Odysseus, Rosemary Sutcliff. Classic stuff
Iliad, Homer. Moving on from the Odyssey.

This means I now have 46 things out on my library cards, including ebooks. Lucky I had the birthday! I'll go share my Library Loot at the event co-hosted by Claire from the Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief where all the library addicts compare their treasures.

Book credits banked: Nine (Usually I reward myself by buying a book if my library total is less than my age, but since I can't actually buy anything right now I'm counting up these credits.)

That's quite a few books! Hope you enjoy them and that your son like's The Iliad (I'm guessing he will). It's so much easier to read a book and then not get round to writing about it, isn't it? I've a couple of reviews I really should have written already that I've been sitting on for a week...
