Library Loot - 8/14/09

Several good books came home from the library with me this week. I hope to read at least (2) of them this week:

  • That Old Cape Magic; Russo - 1st choice
  • The Earth Hums in B Flat; Mari Strachan - 2nd choice
  • Netherland; O'Neil - 3rd choice
  • Heroic Measures; Jill Ciment - 4th choice
  • Cutting for Stone; Verghese - last (really 1st but this one will take more time 500++ pages)

Diane's library-loot book recommendations, reviews, favorite quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists


  1. Nice finds! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on these books.

  2. I just bought Russo's book yesterday! He's one of my favorites and the wait at the library was too long...

  3. Reviews of all of those books have caught my attention. I'll be interested to see what you think of That Old Cape Magic.

  4. Those sound great! I feel like I need to read a Russo book. Can't wait to hear what you think about that one. I just finished Labor Day this morning...LOVED IT!!! Thank you for the great review on that one!!

  5. Netherland is the only one on your list that I have read. It was slow going, but I enjoyed it. There is a scene at the DMV that I thought was perfect.

  6. Good ones Diane. I've got Russo's book and should start it soon. However yesterday I went to the library just to pick up an audio book and came home with a bagful of YA titles instead. lol-Just can't seem to control myself around books anywhere.

  7. They all look really great! I'm going to look for Cutting for Stone.

  8. Nice loot. I hope you're enjoying them. =)

  9. I have heard that Cutting For Stone is an amazing book. I really hope you enjoy it and I can't wait to hear what you think of it.
