Library Loot and more

I came across Alessandra and Eva's Library Loot meme last week and thought that since I had a big library haul this week I'd show off what I picked up.

* The Origin of Lament - Emma Magenta

* The Never Boys - Scott Monk

* This Lullaby - Sarah Dessen

* Friction - E.R. Frank

* An Abundance of Katherines - John Green

* Hey Nostradamus! - Douglas Coupland

* A Little Rain on Thursday - Mark Rubinstein

* The Geographer's Library - Jon Fasman

* The Book of Air and Shadow - Michael Gruber

* On Beauty - Zadie Smith

* Blankets - Craig Thompson

~*~*~*~

And all these books have made their way into my house since the beginning of the year. I don't feel too guilty cause the pile on the left are all from library/market sales and the pile on the right is my last book order from 2008 (the last book only just arrived). So TECHNICALLY speaking I didn't break my 'no new books' rule.

* Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator - Roald Dahl

* The Witches - Roald Dahl

* Eldest - Christopher Paolini

* Hogfather - Terry Pratchett

* Lords and Ladies - Terry Pratchett

* The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents - Terry Pratchett

* Faust/Eric - Terry Pratchett

* Howl's Moving Castle - Dianne Wynne Jones

* Living Dead in Dallas - Charlaine Harris

* Fool Moon - Jim Butcher

* Grave Peril - Jim Butcher

* Inkheart - Cornelia Funke

* The Tale of Desperaux - Kate DiCamillo

* The Wit and Wisdom of Discworld - Compiled by Stephen Briggs

There are a few of these I've read, some I would like to re-read, and some are on my list to read.

I've been hearing good things about Sarah Dessen, and hoping to check into one (or more!) of her books soon. A few of the others here are also on my list! Happy Reading!

You must have got lucky or a great deal on these books. Happy reading!

Rebecca said...

Karen: Yeah, I usually get a pretty good deal on second hand books. My library always has a for sale spindle out the front with 20c books, and the op-shop down the road from my uni always has cheap books. The prices vary depending on who's working that day, but I usually get 4-5 books for about $1
