Library Loot - November 26

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!

I haven't participated in awhile but just got a good haul from the library today.  I'm having surgery next week and will be out of commission from most everyday activities for awhile, so it's time to stock up on review books and library books.

Here's what I brought home:

Under the Dome by Stephen King - the newest by him and the largest in quite awhile - I'm not even sure I can hold this thing, but I'm looking forward to cracking it open.  I haven't seen the reviews of this one yet, so I don't know if everyone thinks it's good, bad or in-between.

Let Them Eat Fruitcake (86 Bloomberg Place) By Melody Carlson - I enjoyed I Heart Bloomberg so much that I immediately put this one on reserve.  Unfortunately my library doesn't have book 3 and I have book 4 to read for review by the end of the year.  Guess I'll have to hit the bookstore!

Crazy for the Storm: a Memoir of Survival by Norm Ollestad - I think I read about this one on a blog somewhere and it intrigued me and made me want to read it.

Burn by Linda Howard - I have loved her books for awhile and this one sounds good.

The Devil's Punchbowl by Greg Iles - I was introduced to Greg Iles on someone's blog several years ago and since then I have loved his books.  I think I have been through all of his new ones and most of his backlist and have been looking forward to reading this one.

The Birthing House by Christopher Ransom - I saw this on blogs when it first came out and it sounded so good - I cannot wait to open this one and enjoy.

The Pirate's Daughter by Margaret Cezair-Thompson - This one just sounds good and our library had it so I had to check it out to read it.

The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly - with the brief appearance of Mickey Haller in 9 Dragons which I read in October I realized I missed out on the second Mickey Haller book when it came out.  I loved the first one, so it makes sense that I would read this one.

Lots of great reading material this week - now to make time for reading!
