Library Loot is hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair and Marg at Reading Adventures.
I've been meaning to read some Elizabeth Taylor (the other Elizabeth Taylor!) for a long time so I picked up two of her books, and have begun In A Summer Season. And then I asked the children's librarian what she recommended for some J and YA books. I grabbed everything she suggested, and came home with a pile! I've already started Coraline.
Addendum: I got two thirds through Coraline and gave it up. I just didn't care about it. I read In a Summer Season and liked it (mostly). Brought all the others back unread because I've bought some books recently and wanted to concentrate on reading them. Will get Mrs Palfrey another time.
