Eva, at A Striped Armchair, came up with the idea of Library Loot, a place to tell about the treasures you brought home from your public library in the last week. I think it's a fabulous idea to share titles, new or old, that you found on the library shelves.
I only brought one home this week, because I was trying to finish books before I saw the authors this weekend. I brought home a nonfiction title, recommended by another library staff member when she booktalked it at our brown bag luncheon. I just started Cheryl Jarvis' The Necklace: Thirteen Women and the Experiment that Transformed Their Lives (Ballantine Books, 2008). It's the story of thirteen women who bought a diamond necklace together, and what happened. From what I understand, this is a story of a group of women with very little in common, and the possibilities that necklace brought them. I'll be reviewing it in a few days.
Only one book from the library this week. What library loot did you bring home?
