Library Lack of Loot

So, I've really cut back now. I even didn't pick up one book that was on hold for me at a library - on purpose!

I only checked out THREE books in the last two weeks! I think that must be a record. I'm down to about 11 books checked out right now. Here are the three:

Heart's Bloodby Juliet Marillier
Prophecy of the Sistersby Michelle Zink
Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deceptionby Maggie Stiefvater

But, suddenly, as if they knew my library books were dwindling, all of these books came in the mail for me. I suppose I should post this more as an In My Mailbox (hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren):

I won a set of Hachette books during Dewey's Read-a-Thon:
What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventuresby Malcolm Gladwell
A Change in Altitude: A Novelby Anita Shreve
How to Roast a Lamb: New Greek Classic Cookingby Michael Psilakis
Norman Rockwell: Behind the Cameraby Ron Schick
Nine Dragonsby Michael Connelly

I also won:
Rampantby Diana Peterfreund from The Book Studio
Fire by Kristin Cashore from Alyce of At Home With Books

And for review:
Lockdownby Walter Dean Myers
The Ghost, the Eggheads, and Babe Ruth's Piano: A Novelby Larry Sweitzer

I guess that means I haven't really slowed down. I have plenty to read :)

If you buy through my Amazon linkage,
I will get a very small percentage


  1. Aren't you lucky to have won all of those books! So cool! Happy reading!

  2. I can't wait to see how you like Fire. I have Graceling on reserve at the library right now and I am very excited to read both of them!

  3. Congrats on your wins! I'm glad the book arrived safely!

  4. Amused, actually I'm kind of shocked. I don't usually have a lot of luck, but I've been swimming in it recently!

    reviewsbylola, I actually already read Fire (here's my review) and enjoyed it! I'm hope you like them too.

    Alyce, thank you again!

  5. I'm so impressed by your cutting back! And enjoy your Hatchette winnings! :D

  6. Eva, let's hope the cutting back continues...


Love it when you comment!
