Library Loot: Saturday Review

Man, that comment challenge is killing me. By the time I find five posts that I can convince myself to comment on, I'm sleepily drooling on my keyboard, forget about posting to my own blog. And my follow page overfloweth. So I'm a tad bit behind now...

Thursday was our school's Multicultural Night, which had me running around like a Library Chicken with its head chopped off. (Among other things, I was responsible for providing picture books for each continent representing some of the cultures found there. Antarctica was a particular challenge). So Library Thursday became Library Friday. Sans Kids, but since I had to get to four libraries I managed to avoid browsing. I went to: our school library, to reshelve all the cultural books I had borrowed, our old school's library, because I love picking out books for KG's, our county library, where my hold shelf sang to me, and a super-quick stop to my city library, where I dropped off and then raced back to start picking kids up. (By the way, has anyone seen my wallet? It disappeared somewhere around there...)

My hold shelf gave to me:
  • Rampant, by Diana Peterfreund. A unicorn book, which will go nicely with Ariel, another unicorn book I am currently reading.
  • Your Inner Fish: A Journey Into the 3.5 Billion-Year History of the Human Body, by Neil Shubin, which I saw recommended somewhere. Teacherninja maybe? Yep. Thanks!
  • Chalice of Roses, romance short stories.
  • Heart of a Shepherd, Rosanne parry. I think this is a Cybil's pick.
  • Chameleon, by Charles R. Smith. YA book not about a white kid.
  • Animusic 2 (video0. Recommended by P.
Then I walked out. Amazing, eh?

Total Books and stuff from Library Elf: 94. That still seems a bit high...

I'll go sign up for Library Loot this week. That's a weekly event hosted in turns by A Striped Armchair (this weeks host) and Reading Adventures where bloggers can share their library finds of the week. Some of them make me look restrained.

I've really surprised myself in terms of the comment challenge. This is the first time ever that I have kept track, and I apparently have a lot to say! LOL!

Enjoy your loot.

I think I would be ashamed to admit just how many library items I have in piles around my house. It's like this crazy addiction. And despite working there, it's like if I don't take it home with me when I first see it, I would never remember what I want to read from the library.
