Library Loot

Two weeks ago another of my public libraries finally reopened, albeit with limited hours. Even though I’m in the middle of several great books right now I couldn’t resist grabbing yet another stack. As you can see, it’s all backlist stuff so there’s plenty of material for my “About Time I Read It” series.

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted Claire from The Captive Reader and Sharlene from Real Life Reading to encourage bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write-up your post, steal the Library Loot pic and link your post using the Mr. Linky on Claire’s blog.

Sadly, when it comes to library books I have no self-control. I guess all I can do right now is get back to reading.

  1. Every single one of these sounds so good to me. The Looming Tower is the only one I’ve read and it’s a favorite, but that’s pretty much anything Lawrence Wright for me! I think you’ll like it. I have The Collapse on my list thanks to Jaymi too.
    Thanks for all these suggestions!!

  2. There is no point in having self-control at the library – it is the one place you can go wild without any consequences! These all sound fascinating and A Mirror Garden is going straight onto my list.

    Thinking of the Cold War and spies, is The Happy Traitor by Simon Kuper on your radar yet? It’s about the double agent George Blake, is just out, and sounds absolutely fascinating.
