Library Loot - December 4

Library loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva (A Striped Armchair) and Marg (Reading Adventures) that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. It's been a couple months since I have participated, but I'm excited about this week's loot.

Wishin' and Hopin'
by Wally Lamb
I don't remember where I first heard about this, but my name went on the list (along with many other library patrons) the day it was released. Two days ago, I was third in line. Yesterday, Wishin' and Hopin' was waiting for me! Wally Lamb is a great storyteller and I've enjoyed all his books, so can't wait to get started on this one. We're traveling to Massachusetts later today for Daughter #1's basketball tournament. Now I've got some holiday reading to bring along.

by Melvyn Bragg

Jill at Fizzy Thoughts reviewed this last week and I put a hold on it right away. Now I just hope that with all the holiday hoopla, there will be time to read it!

I've also been at the top of the Wolf Hall hold list for several weeks now. (What's taking so long, anyway?) As it gets deeper into December, my reading time is sure to dwindle, and I'm worried that this will arrive at the worst possible time. Did you find anything interesting at the library this week?


  1. Thanks JoAnn! I've just whipped over to my library's catalogue and placed a hold for the Melvyn Bragg title in book and DVD form.

  2. Wishin' and Hopin' was great! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  3. That Wally Lamb book caught my eye, whoever reviewed it. (Kathy?) I rarely step foot inside the walls of my library...I just order stuff online. I am on an eternal wait list for The Girl Who Played with Fire, and also on hold for Flowers in the Attic and Go Ask Alice (what the hell is up with THAT?). I've also ordered the audio of The Little Giant of Aberdeen County thanks to you, the audio version of Andre Agassi's tell all Open, and the audio version of The Liar's Club. Gotta get restocked on audios.

  4. Oh, I wonder how Wish' and Hopin' is. It's the one Wally Lamb book I haven't read.

  5. I overdosed at the library this week!! LOL!! Hope Wolf Hall gets to you soon!! Enjoy your loot!

  6. I'll expect a full report on The Adventure of you can remind me of what I've forgotten. ;-)

  7. Darlene - Let me know what you think of the DVD. Couldn't find that in my library...

    Nise' - I love Wally Lamb! Hope to get started tonight or tomorrow on Wishin' and Hopin'.

    Sandy - I've got The Liar Club on my list, too! I can't take credit for 'Little Giant' though...haven't gotten to it yet ;-)

    Barrie - Hope to give you a full report on Lamb's new book soon!

    Staci - "overdosed at the library"...the pharmacist is me is laughing out loud! I actually surrendered earlier this fall and returned everything. Now it's building up again.

    Softdrink - LOL...I'm a little worried that I may not be able to concentrate on this one until after the holidays.

    Marg - Thanks...I already am!
