Library Loot

Recently discovered Out of the Blue. A feature I particularly like is Library Loot. Alessandra encourages readers to share what they checked out of the library.

Me, it's like Cheers when I walk into my library branch. I currently have Neverwhere and The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and Sadika's Way by Hina Hak.

See me earlier post about Gaiman. Hak was recommended on a discussion thread, entitled "Around The Globe." I asked members to suggest books set in different countries. I'm looking forward to this read because it meets several of my interests including multiculturalism, diversity and books by women of color.

I've been meaning to read Gaiman for awhile now. I always forget to look for his books when I'm at the library. It looks like you have some good books picked out. Enjoy :)

Of course I'm familiar with PBS. You might even say that I'm TOO familiar with it; I easily spend way too much time there. It's funny, because about a week ago I just passed on my copy of A Mango-Shaped Space (also received through PBS). I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :)

And let me know how you liked The Graveyard Book!

Neil Gaiman is an author I've recently come across and he is my new literary crush. Do you read his blog?

Melissa said...

Two Gaiman books I've not read (yet). I really liked Stardust, though.

I love Gaiman, so I hope you enjoy him! :)

Love your blog. I tried to subscribe, Susan, but got an error message :(

But don't worry: I will persist!

Me too! I always have a good feeling as soon as I walk through the door at my local library.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
