Library Loot – November 10

Posted: November 10, 2009 in Library


library-lootLibrary 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!

Yesterday , I kind of raided the library. I have one week’s leave starting today , so I picked up quite a number of books .

    Stardust, Persepolis, March – all good!

    I don’t know why but I don’t tend to read much when I am on holidays!

    All the books sound good . The only one I read “March” was just so-so for me. Will be nice to know what you think of it.

    Happy Hols!
