Library Loot 2010-10

It is well known on my my love for British men. What is less well known is a long-time crush on Andre Agassi. Loved him when I was a teenager, something which continued until his retirement four years ago. Sigh. So, I was incredibly excited when Open showed up at the library for me today. I don’t care if it’s a good book (though it’d be nice if it was, kind of like Sting’s was…). I just want to enjoy Andre for a little bit longer. I’m shameless. 😀

This week’s loot:

Picture Books:
The Goblin and the Empty Chair, by Mem Fox/Illus by Leo and Diane Dillon
Don’t Worry Bear, by Greg Foley
Supersister, by Beth Cadena/Illus by Frank W. Dormer
Have You Ever Seen a Sneep?, by Tasha Pym/Illus by Joel Stewart
Surprise Soup, by Mary Ann Rodman/Illus. by G. Brian Karas

Non-Fiction books:
Open: An Autobiography, by Andre Agassi

Middle Grade Fiction:
Scones and Sensibility, by Lindsay Eland

YA books:
Heist Society, by Ally Carter

I don’t often get audiobooks, but we’re going to Oklahoma for a couple of days over spring break, and our new mother-daughter book group is reading The Penderwicks. I thought it’d be a good way to enjoy the drive and get the reread out of the way. Then Hubby complained; he hasn’t read the second book, and wants to. Now we get to duke it out: which one to listen to while driving?!

The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy, by Jeanne Birdsall
The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, by Jeanne Birdsall

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. I didn't do a library loot this week, but the day I read yours, I had just come from our library with a copy of Have You Ever Seen A Sneep? It was a cute book. I am not sure if my little girl got the humor in the end (she is 3). But, I laughed. I think she will get it if we read it some more.


  2. I found the second Penderwicks book at my library the other day, but I haven't read the first so I'm not checking it out until I, uh, have. 😀 It looks like a fun series, though!
