Library Loot 2010-3

Both K and I are cranky today, so all we did was go in, find books (not many movies, much to our displeasure), pick up our holds, and get out.

It must be January.

The roundup is either at Reading Adventures or A Striped Armchair. Obligatory FTC note: the links are provided through my Amazon Associates account. If you click through and actually purchase one of these books, I’ll get a teeny, tiny payment. But, since no one ever does, and it’s SO much easier using the associates account to put up these links, I’m going to keep doing it.

  1. Oh, I adore The Hollow Kingdom! The other books in the series, not so much.

    And I think Leviathan was the coolest book I read last year, so it looks like you folks have some great reading ahead.



  2. Trisha: That's two votes for reading The Hollow Kingdom… I think I'll have to pick it up now. (It was originally for my daughter M…) And I agree: Leviathan was one of the coolest books I read last year.

    Thanks for stopping by!!

    and uenohama — I kind of liked it when I read it several years ago. Maybe I won't like it so much now, but we'll see…
