Library Loot March 14-20



I am a huge public library fan! Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.  I go to the library a couple of times per week to pick up my requests and to browse. Here are the treasures I brought home this week:


 To Siberia by Per Petterson 








The Sealed Letter by Emma Donoghue 







  
The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai






  
A Good American by Alex George







The Interloper by Antoine Wilson

THIS WAS MEANT TO BE!


Just a couple of days after discovering the wonderfully written article, The Misanthrope’s Guide to Reading While Traveling, written by Rebecca Joines Schinsky,
ALL OF A SUDDEN...
THESE fantastic book covers came to my attention!

P.S.  I am receiving no compensation...
this enthusiasm is all mine!
