Loot From the Library

Library loot has multiple meanings this week:

Checked out from the library:
The Mark by Jen Nadol
The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan (yeah!)
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant (for book club)
Gone by Michael Grant

Purchased at the Provo Children's Book Festival (which was filled with awesome):
Penny from Heaven by Jennifer Holm 
(didn't get it signed - came at the wrong time for her)
Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson 
(unfortunately didn't meet him - the hubby was in his line while I waited for Shannon Hale to sign my River Secrets book - he did, however, thank me for being an evil librarian)

Friends of the Library book sale (cause I can't resist):
Rose in Bloom by Louisa May Alcott (loved this when I was a kid)
Trickster's Queen by Tamora Pierce (so I haven't read Trickster's Choice yet, but here's some incentive)
Peace Like a River by Leif Enger
Cheaper by the Dozen by Frank B. Gilbreth
Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained by John Milton

Random purchases and gifts:
Fablehaven: Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary by Brandon Mull 
Spells by Aprilynne Pike (from goodreads bookswap)

Random further note about the festival - I attended a discussion by Sara Zarr and Ann Dee Ellis about blogging.  I fell in love with their blogs, so go check them out!

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


  1. Haven't thought of Rose In Bloom in years! I loved it too.

  2. I've heard The Red Tent is an excellent book for group discussions. I picked up a copy at a library sale recently and I'm trying to get my group to select it one of these months ....

  3. I keep meaning to read The Red Tent, I'm sure that'd be great to read in a group setting.

    And oh, I do love library book sales.

    Happy reading :)

  4. Shelley, it took me back to my childhood too!

    Suzanne, I'm pretty excited to read it as a group, too!

    Clover, I hope we get lots of good discussion.

  5. The Red Tent was a good read. It's great for discussion too.

  6. Amy, all you guys are making me very excited to read this for book club!


Love it when you comment!
