Library Loot

On a normal library day I can borrow either 6 books or 4 books and 2 AV material. But libraries here are awesome at doing promotional things often enough. This time I could borrow 12 library items till January end. Obviously I have been taking advantage of that. Unfortunately I saw the promotional announcement just recently so that doesn’t give me a lot of days to take advantage of it.
Anyway, I borrowed 9 books and 4 AV’s.


The witching Hour is about a girl Maggie whose grandmother was burned for being a witch. She runs away from her town but disaster follows her.
Sea is set in the days after the Indonesian Tsunami in 2004. It’s YA and looks real interesting.
Candor is a book I had wanted to read for a long time. I think it’s a YA dystopian novel.
The Great Elephant Escape follows the life of 2 elephants and their journey in a Thailand Orphanage.
Memoirs of a Monster Hunter is obviously a memoir. I really don’t know what it’s about but the title was very interesting.
Jellicoe Road is another YA book I have been wanting to read for a long time. But after seeing it on a number of ‘Best of 2010’ lists, I thought I should just pick it up already.

I also borrowed a couple of calvin and hobbes books for my husband and a couple of audio books for him as he listens to them while jogging.

I also borrowed 2 movies

I’m not sure how many books I will actually read before the due date but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

  1. Hi Violet,
    Your own personal mini-challenge eh!

    I shall be very impressed if you get all those finished by the end of the month.

    ‘Jellicoe Road’ and ‘The Great Elephant Escape’ would be the best of the bunch for me and would probably struggle to finish those in time.

    Good Luck, but most of all, read to enjoy.

    • I don’t really have to finish them by the end of the month, just whenever the due date is (after 21 days). So even if I borrow 9 book on the last day of Jan I still have 21 days to read them. Cool right?

  2. I am glad you were able to take advantage of the special promotion before it ended! I need to get around to reading Coraline so I can see the movie. It’s been a while since i last picked up a Neil Gaiman book. Enjoy your books and movies!

  3. Great selection! Candor was one of the first ebooks i got on my ereader last year and I still haven’t read it *sigh*. Maybe your review will convince me? 😉
