N also grabbed three music CD's for me, mostly to keep me from wandering about and looking at books. He was showing off to his mom how much managing I need. I put them in the car without looking at them, so I'll be surprised by my playlist.
On the hold shelf I had the next two books in my TBR list, one fast-moving Best of the Best option, and a choose-your-adventure type history book which I saw at The Children's War. Oh, and two books my seventh grader asked requested that somehow ended up on my queue instead of his:
- Child of Dandelions, Shenaaz Nanji
- The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance, Elna Baker
- Scarlet, Bendis & Maleev
- World War II On the Home Front, Martin Gitlin
- The Secret King, Violet Haberdasher
- The Boy From Ilysius, Pearl North
The next day (Friday), I left P at the library to do some research while I ran some errands. And when picking him up, I sorta accidentally checked out a few more books, mostly from the children's section:
- Mr Putter and Tabby See the Stars, Cynthia Rylant
- Mr Putter and Tabby Spill the Beans, Cynthia Rylant
- A Zeal of Zebras: An Alphabet of Collective Nouns. I want confirmation that these are real.
- Seriously, Norman!. I've liked his picture books.
- Thor, The Mighty Avenger Vol 1. X already stole this from me, as expected.
- Within The Fames. Marjorie M. Liu's latest paranormal, about Eddy. I expect extra plot with my plot!
This brings me to a total of 41, wait, 47 items out on my card, plus a horde of ebooks. It's less than the age the 5K organizers a few weeks ago recored me as, so I'll be happy with that. My plan is to keep putting up a review a day until I defeat the review-real-soon-now pile on my bedside table. I'll go share my Library Loot at the event co-hosted by Claire from the Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader, where all the library addicts compare their treasures.
