So I’ve been wanting to participate in Claire and Marg‘s meme for awhile now, but I haven’t checked out much from my local libraries lately. I tend to borrow more from friends than anything. I also received my first review copies recently, and with giveaways, birthdays, holidays, and my started-a-book-blog increased book spending I guess I haven’t needed my local library as much as I used to. *sad* I do however check out lots of board and picture books for my son and the occasional handful for myself. I think another problem is that I return so many books unopened that I’ve learned to limit what I take home. Working at a library, too makes it easy to pick up a book here or there before or after a shift rather than making one big weekly trip.
So after that rambling explanation that’s why this week I decided to share the pile of books I borrowed from a friend’s library*:
From top left: True Confessions of a Heartless Girl by Martha Brooks (little known Canadian title that looks like it may be my thing and was personally recommended to me)
A Curse Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce because I used to read more fairy tale retellings (must rectify this) and it comes so highly recommended.
Beguilement (The Sharing Knife #1) by Lois McMaster Bujold because I’ve been meaning to read it for ages now and it was my latest Want Books? pick and with Chachic’s review I just can’t afford to wait any longer.
So where do you get most of your books from – a publisher or author, a bookstore or book website, or from the library or a friend?
