Library Loot: September 29 - October 5

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted alternatively by Marg and Claire that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky (at Claire's this week) any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!
No books this week just music!

En concert by Jack Johnson
The Moldy Peaches by The Moldy Peaches
If you've seen Juno you'll recognize The Moldy Peaches because they comprised a majority of the soundtrack!

The following lists give you an idea of the fates of my past library loot: read, unread, and returned! (Links are to my reviews!)

Endless Summer - Jennifer Echols (Returned based on reveiw)

Middlesex - Jeffrey Eugenides
Whew! That's a whole lotta unread loot. *shiftyeyes*
For the most part I either couldn't renew the books or I'd read a negative review and decided to return it. However, Jennifer Echol's says returned based on review. However, the reveiw wasn't negative per se but I'd finished one of Echols other books and didn't care much for the main character and the review basically convinced me I'd like the main character even less. So I figured I wouldn't even bother!
Several of the books I returned I will eventually check out again but I realized I wouldn't be reading them anytime soon so I just returned them!
This list doesn't even include the...twenty-two books I currently have checked out! *moreshiftyeyes*


  1. Hey look at that! My scheduled post worked! Yay!

  2. Well, with the amount of books you borrow from the library, I'm not surprised you return a lot of them unread :P The great thing about libraries though is that you can always borrow the books again :P and you read some good books and that's all good :)
