It's been a while since I did a library loot post and they're probably all different now to what they were in the last post and so... it's time.
The lefthand pile:
Notes from a Big Country - Bill Bryson. I think this is his newspaper columns from when he moved back to the USA temporarily. Whatever, his books are always a joy.
Clockwork Angel - Cassandra Clare. Recommended by my eldest daughter. I think it might be steampunk.
The Voice of the Violin - Andrea Camilleri. Book er... 3 or 4 I think... of Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano series that I decided not to continue with but changed my mind. Story of my life.
Paradise Barn and The Deeping Secrets - Victor Watson. About a group of children during World War 2 and came highly recommended by Jenny at Stories for Jennimen.
The righthand pile:
The Well of Lost Plots - Jasper Fforde. Book 3 in his Thursday Next series that I've come to like over the last few months.
Red Bones - Ann Cleeves. Book 3 in her Jimmy Perez series... another brilliant crime series.
Vanish - Tess Gerritsen. I got it!!!! I was on the library doorstep almost as they opened and then couldn't find the d*** book. LOL. Turns out it was on the 'just returned' shelf. Anyway, book 5 of her Rizzoli and Isles series of course. I should've got my husband to take a photo of me cleaving it to my bosom...
Places in the Dark - Thomas H. Cook. Recced to me in my previous post by Danielle of A Work in Progress. I checked the library for it this morning and there it was, so I nabbed it.
The King's Speech - Mark Logue and Peter Conrad. I haven't even seen the film yet, but we have it on order so should be able to see it this week sometime. My younger daughter was reading this and said it was a terrific read, so I nabbed it from her.
So, my New Year decision to try not to borrow more than 4 or 5 library books at time has gone for a Burton really. It never did stand much chance and I probably knew it at the time. I reassure myself by telling myself that libraries are in danger everywhere at the moment and if we don't use them, we'll lose them. So I'm busy using mine. See? I feel better already.
