Library Loot # 2

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva @ A Striped Armchair and Marg @ Reading Adventures 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. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!

Library Loot # 1
Here are the books that I have checked out right now:

For the Middle Grade Book Challenge
Anne of Green Gables (Anne of Green Gables Novels)
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maude Montgomery, illustrators Laura Fernandez and Rick Jacobson

Reaghan's current books checked out
Alfie and the Big Boys Smart Dog
Alfie and the Big Boys by Shirley Hughes (is also the illustrator)
Smart Dog by Ralph Leemis, illustrator Chris L Demarest
Random book choices like this are what happen when you set a 3 1/2yo loose in the children's section with "Pick two books" as her only instruction. =)

Checked out for Banned Books Week
And Tango Makes Three
And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell, illustrator Henry Cole -- We read it during Banned Books Week, but the review won't be posted for another couple of weeks.

Checked out for myself
Looking for Alaska Pride and Prejudice The Eleanor Roosevelt Girls
Looking for Alaska by John Green -- because I took a quiz and Looking for Alaska was my result.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen -- because I am 33 and have never read any Jane Austen and Eva (@ A Striped Armchair) though this was a good place to start.
The Eleanor Roosevelt Girls by Bonnie Charles Bluh -- I searched Eleanor Roosevelt on my library's website and this is one of the books that came up. Eleanor Roosevelt's birthday is October 11, 1884; she has been a heroine of mine since 5th grade when I did a report on her for Social Studies. I wish I still had that report.

  1. It is so nice to know that there are other readers out there who have not read Jane Austen either! Enjoy your loot!

  2. I LOVE Anne of Green Gables!!! Although I don't know why there are illustrators?! Is it an adapted book? Looking for Alaska is marvelous too. ANd you know how I feel about P&P! ;)
