'How pleasant it is to spend an evening in this way! I declare that after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.' No one made any reply. She then yawned again, threw aside her book, and cast her eyes round the room in quest of some amusement. — from Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen (1775-1817)

Library Loot

My spot on the reserve shelf was more than full. I'll be serious later; the next two weeks are going to be fun.





{Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted at The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader (a new blog for me) and The Captive Reader (another Angela Thirkell-lover!) that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. I enjoy reading these posts so I thought I'd join in.}

So glad that you've joined in! I'm terribly jealous of your copy of The Attenbury Emeralds. I have it on hold at the library but there are still ten people ahead of me. Patience is a virtue I suppose...

Enjoy your loot!

Your loot looks great! I saw my library recently received Love Letters. I hope it's good!

I see you're listening to Love Walked In. How is it so far? I just picked it up at my library's used book sale.

Happy reading! :)

I loved the Walsh & Fforde & have the Buchan on the tbr shelves. Maybe after Virago week? I hope you enjoy reading them all.

I have Attenbury Emeralds on hold, but there are about 40 people ahead of me. Oh well, it will give me time to reread some Sayers.

Thank you for visiting!
