Library Loot - 11/30/11

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.

You should totally move Losing My Faculties to the top of the list. Excellent book.

Though I should recuse myself for obvious reasons, you could do much worse than read The Brothers' Lot
