Even though I’m up to my eyeballs in reading material I couldn’t help myself the other day at the public library when I grabbed six more books. Who knows if I’ll be able to read any of them, swamped as I am with recently acquired books but who cares. I’m sure by now most of you are familiar with this meme. We book bloggers write about the different books we’ve picked up at the library that week. In turn, we post a link to our post on a blogger’s page so folks can see what we hope to be reading over the next week or so. Just like before, our Library Loot co-hosts are Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief
Of the six books I’m featuring in this post, four are fiction and two are nonfiction. Two books, one fiction and one nonfiction are by Iranian-born authors. Two of the below-listed novels are works of historical fiction. While I grabbed one book on a friend’s recommendation the rest I checked out because they looked promising.
