Library Loot #4 July 17th

Library Loot is a weekly meme where you list all the books you have borrowed from your local library.

Library Loot is hosted by Eva and Marg. To take part all you have to do is post on your blog your library loot and go back to Eva’s and Marg’s blog and let them know.

I ended up making a unexpected trip to the library on Tuesday to get a book that had come in for me so that meant my son and walked around a bit. Here is what we picked up:

  • I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak (This was posted on Michael’s blog and it sounded really good.)
  • Blogging for Dummies

These following books are the ones Michael wanted to borrow:

  • Trains by Scholastic a first discovery book
  • A True Book: Trains by Darlene Stille
  • Model Railroading by Gil Paust
  • Going on a journey to the sea by Jane Barclay (She is a local author)
  • How cold was it? by Jane Barclay
  • How hot was it? by Jane Barclay
  • ABC of Canada by Kim Bellefontaine
  • Canada 1 2 3 by Kim Bellefontaine
  • Machines at work: Airplane
  • Wheels At Work: In the City by Don Kilby

As of right now we still have the previous sets of books we borrowed from the library hoping that some will go back on Friday.

Today (Friday) we had story time at the library and of course more books managed to find there way home with us. Here is what followed us:

  • Art Geeks and prom Queens by Alyson Noel
  • All We Know and Love by Nora Raleigh Baskin
  • Girl, Hero by Carrie Jones
  • Clay by David Almond
  • Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
  • Mucky Moose by Jonathan Allen
  • Moose Music by Sue Porter
  • Four Famished Foxes & Fosadyke by Pamela Duncan Edwards
  • Storytime for Little Porcupine by Joseph Slate

  1. Holy cow! Michael’s more of a book addict than you are!

  2. Thirteen Reasons Why is a great book! I think Michael beat you on the borrowing though, it must be so nice that he loves books so much.

  3. Okay – first off Michael definitely has a thing about transportation – I am sure he is going to end up doing something in that area when he grows up. I am also impressed by his interest in Canada – I bet he will know more than I do pretty quickly.

    I am also jealous Cindy. I never really find anything “new” and interesting when I hit the library (I have the same problem with used bookstores). Unless its something I have requested, I usually leave empty-handed 🙂

  4. Kathy-He loves borrowing books as you can see. I have been trying not to borrow to much as I have a ton of books i need to read at home.

    Meghan-Funny enough when I came home from the library I discovered that I actually bought this book a few weeks ago so I will be returning it. It sounds really good,

    Tina- Michael loves transportation as you can see and I am sure he is taking after his father in that way and I really see him doing something in that line of work. He also loves learning about places and that is due to his preschool last year. In the beginning of the year he came home with a huge map of the world and each month they learned about a new place in the world.

  5. My library haul usually includes a couple of train books as well! My 5 year old son Matthew always heads straight for the non-fiction section of the main library to the shelves with books about steam engines. He completely bypasses the kids section.

  6. Hi Cindy,

    I absolutely loved I Am the Messenger. I made my mom read it just so I would have someone to discuss it with! I hope you enjoy it.

  7. I read I Am the Messenger, it was amazing. It was certainly different then the usual general fiction.
