Library Loot - 09/25/11

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.   

I am one of those library types who always, always takes too many books and can never finish them all before they are due...even with 2 renewal periods!  So, my list changes often...and books go back unread sometimes.
Currently, I have the following library loot on hand:

Salvage the bones : a novel / Jesmyn Ward.
