LIBRARY LOOT: May 14th, 2011

The Adventures of a Intrepid Reader and Claire from The Captive Reader. This weekly event encourages bloggers to share the books they have checked out from the library. I always find many new books to add to my reserve list!  If you’d like to participate, just write up your post and link up. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!

Library Loot: May 11th –17th

This last week I finished the following books:

NOTHING!!! I am struggling to find time to read. May is very busy with commitments at Tommy’s school and getting ready for summer. Hopefully, June will be less busy for us so I can find more time to read!    I am currently listening to “the Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford.   I am about 1/2 done with this audiobook, so should complete it this week.

My Library Loot for this week:

Fictional Finds……

I am reading “A Secret Kept” as my book group selection for the month of May.   “Lost Boy”, I don’t remember where I read about it, but it is about a young man who was forced out of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a polygamous sect.   Every since reading, “Nineteenth Wife”, I am interested in reading about LDS.  I can’t remember how “The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet” found it’s way on to my reserve list, but it did!   I am always pleasantly surprised when I pick up my reserves at the library each week!

Much Needed Information………….



I have been struggling greatly with neck and back pain from a car accident 7 years ago.   Hoping to find some insight by reading to explore options for pain relief.  

Starting my 2nd week in a Physical Therapy/Rehab program.

This weekend I actually was able to go to the library with hubby and my little guy.   I feels great to get back into our normal routine.  I hope we can stick with it again for a while. 

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  

                                         Happy Reading!!

  2. Lost Boy definitely sounds interesting and I've heard nothing but good things about The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet. Enjoy your loot!

  3. I've wanted to read The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet for some time now. I hope you enjoy all of these!

  4. I loved, loved, loved Sarah's Key so I'm very anxious to read A Secret Kept.

  5. Lost Boy looks interesting; it's going on my list. I love the cover of A Secret Kept.
