The Library Is My Community Center

Again I made several trips to the library, but all on a Thursday. I went in the morning to do some work for the local PTA, and to take advantage of the free printing for some flyers. I went in the early afternoon to pick up my kid and check in with him before heading out to a meeting. And after the meeting I went back to pick up the other kid.

I really like using the library as a pick up point. If I'm early, great! If I'm late, fine! Much better than having to worry about weather or whatever. I still managed to avoid checking out too many things, because I'm trying to read what I have.

The hold shelf five books:

The Eighth DaySideways Stories From Wayside SchoolThe Princess in BlackWandering SonThe Gospel of Loki

The Eigth Day, Dianne K. Saleri. I saw several positive reviews for this in a row, so I ordered it up.

Sideways Stories from Wayside School, Louis Sachar. This is the first book club book for the Talbot Hill Book Club.

The Princess in Black, Shannon Hale & Dean Hale. A fun little graphic novel, I hope.

Wandering Son Vol 2., Shimura Takako. The continuing adventures of a cross dressing boy.

The Gospel of Loki, Joanne M. Harris. Technically I got this for my son (who has already absconded with it), but I'm hoping I'll get a chance to read it as well.

I've currently got 44 things out from the library, including ebooks, music, books for me, and books for the kids. That's a good month's reading, right? (I'm one down from last week, so that's good!)

I finished C.J. Box's Breaking Point as well as Laura Child's Ming Tea Murder for my library quest. I've just started almost amish by Kathryn Cushman. It's probably time for me to get the next batch since these Large Print books look really long but read very quickly.

badge-4I'll go sign in to Library Loot which is at The Captive Reader this week to see what everyone else is getting.  Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week.
