Library Loot - Feb 03, 2010

Wednesday, February 3, 2010



Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva @ A Striped Armchair and Marg @ Reading Adventures 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'm guilty, yet again! Of going off to the library before reading the books I borrowed previously! And I'm off this weekend to pick more, since 3 holds just came through yesterday! We really should have had 48 hours in a day rather than the measly 24 hours, which just swim away way too fast! Apparently, we sleep 8 hours, and work 8 hours, then where are the remaining 8 hours?

I digress!

Anyways, this is what I picked last weekend:



  1. Precious by Sapphire. I was actually looking for Push, but my library only had the movie-tie-in edition. Does any one know if there's a difference between the two? I had previously read the first chapter, so I couldn't spot any differences. I hope it's the same as the original!
  2. White Oleander by Janet Fitch. I'm reading this book with Cheryl @ The Books I Read, for a Pen-Pal read in a Goodreads group. So I'm pretty excited about starting this!
What do you think of any of these books?

I think the movie tie-in edition is the same as Push - they're just trying to market of the movie's publicity. I've read both of those books and enjoyed them!

I have not read Precious, but did read White Oleander. I thought it was good, but depressing :(

Both sad ones that I hear are good ones. Keep tissues near by :) and happy reading :)

I just bought PUSH and can't wait to read it. Enjoy!

I haven't read either of these - sounds as if they might be tearjerkers. Hope you enjoy them.:)

Kathy, thanks for clearing that one!

Diane, I did hear it's depressing, so I want to balance it with light reads before and after it! Hope it works! :)

Juju, I guess I better!

Michelle, can't wait to hear what you think of it!

Cat, thanks! :)
