Library Loot - December 11

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg 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 any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!

It's been another good week for books from the library - if I would quit blog surfing so much my library pile would actually diminish, but that would be no fun at all!  And since I'm home on recovery I need plenty to read, and I have plenty to read this week.

New Additions to the pile (click on the pictures for more information from Goodreads):

The Lost Symbol (Robert Langdon, #3)The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown - just getting this one, I think I was 50-something on the list at the library shortly after it came out (we can't reserve before the library has it), but I was in no hurry.  Now I have Decoding The Lost Symbol by Simon Cox to read and review after I finish The Lost Symbol.

The Gift 
The Gift by Cecelia Ahern - Christmas reading and I have been meaning to read one of her books - this kills two birds with one stone :)

Into the Beautiful North: A NovelInto the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urrea - this is one of those books I probably would not have found without the blogging world. It looks to be a very interesting book.

Unhallowed GroundUnhallowed Ground by Heather Graham - I love her books and this one looks to be good.

City of Glass (Mortal Instruments, #3)City of Glass by Cassandra Clare - I still have the second in this series to read in my library pile from before, but I loved the first one so I know I will speed through the next two.

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium, #2)The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson - Loved The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo so I am anxious to read the next installment in the series.

June BugJune Bug by Chris Fabry - I saw this one on several blogs awhile back and thought it looked good and he would be a new author for me.

Breathless: A Novel Breathless by Dean Koontz - I'm still a Dean Koontz fan - he writes great thrillers that I can't put down and I was one of the first on the list for this one.

Wings (Wings, #1)Wings by Aprilynne Pike - this is another one I saw a lot on the blogs awhile back and I just recently discovered it on the library's online catalog.

I am also trying to learn to knit, so I checked out several knitting books to help teach me.  We'll see how that goes.  I think I have the hang of casting on and the knit stitch, but the others I am still learning.  But it's a lot of fun and it's easy to do while watching tv shows on dvd with DH at night.

Thanks for joining in! :) I've passed my library love on to my niece-she just came up for a visit, and she was asking when we could go to the library! It looks like you have a lot of fun historical reading ahead of you.
