Library Loot 4-29-2009

I went to the library over the weekend, but it was to persue their annual book sale - which I found out they are going to start having monthly in June! They do have a used book store, but for their annual sale the prices were greatly reduced! Hardbacks were a quarter and paperbacks were 3 for a quarter. So for only $4.00 I got the following books (they threw in the paperbacks since I bought 16 hardcovers!)

The Burden of Proof - Scott Turow

Sweet Revenge - Nora Roberts

The Innocent Man - John Grisham

Crescent City - Belva Plain

Remembrance - Jude Devereaux
Twin of Fire - Jude Devereaux
Twin of Ice - Jude Devereaux
The Temptress - Jude Devereaux

Malice - Danielle Steel
Bungalow 2 - Danielle Steel
Mixed Blessings - Danielle Steel
Love: Poems - Danielle Steel
The Promise - Danielle Steel
Kaleidoscope - Danielle Steel

To Have and To Hold - Fern Michaels

Middlesex - Jeffrey Eugenides

The Indwelling (Left Behind Series #7) - Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins
The Mark (Left Behind Series #8) - Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins

"O" is for Outlaw - Sue Grafton

I got some other books last week from a Media exchange that we had at our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) meeting. You could bring in any kind of media (books, CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, etc) - but for every child item you had to take a child item and for adult item you had to take an adult item.

I picked up six books from this exchange -

Wish You Well - David Baldacci
The Simple Truth - David Baldacci

The Other Queen - Philippa Gregory

Blind Alley - Iris Johansen

Keeping Faith - Jodi Picoult
The Tenth Circle - Jodi Picoult

There are certain authors that I like to keep in my permanent library - and I have no rhyme or reason why I pick those authors, but something at some time appealed to me about them. This list is as varied as Stephen King and Anne Rice to Anne Perry and Jodi Picoult. Do any of you have authors that you collect?

Sadly I have 3 book cases of Authors I collect LOL. Some of them I've had for over 20 years and won't give them up. Now I have a rule that if I buy a book and rate it less than 3 stars I give it away.

I picked up books from the library two weeks ago. I always check out too many books. I can't help it.

1.Rasputin's Daughter by Alexander
2.I, Coriander by Sally Gardner
3.Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson
4.Needled to Death by Maggie sefton
5.My Life in France by Julia Child

I have twenty books altogether. I won't list all of the books here. Some of the books are for Reading Challenges.

What a loot you got!! I too have the 'collection', mostly Jean Plaidy is the bulk. Then the rest of the titles on another specific bookcase are all British history oriented. Some of the 'regular' books I do the paperbackswap.com exchange for the titles that I want to keep.

I love Library Loot. I always feel so rich when I walk out of the library with an arm full of books. I use our online option to have books held so all I have to do is pick them up.
WNLP is a great library. If they are having a monthly book sale then i think I will need to check that out. They do have a rather nice size of books for sale daily.

Looks like you're reading the Left Behind series. I read them all a while ago and enjoyed them. I'm curious as to what you think of them.
