Library Loot - January 21, 2009

Another fairly big library week, although this should be the last big one for awhile. So what did I get?
  • Women in Early Medieval Europe by Lisa M Bitel (for the Medieval Challenge)
  • Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (also for the Medieval Challenge)
  • Inkheart by Cornelia Funke (I can't seem to stop reading books that will be made into movies - even though I usually hate the movies!)
  • Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Alison Goodman (this one was on a best of 2008 list for teens, so I thought I'd check it out)
  • The Aurora County All-Stars by Deborah Wiles (I think this one may have been from a best of 2007 list for kids)
  • Developing Library and Information Center Collections by G Edward Evans (for a class, Collection Development)
  • The Book: the life story of a technology by Nicole Howard (another book for my History of Books and Libraries class)
And there you have it. I do anticipate actually getting to all of these, although I may not be able to get the medieval ones read by the time the challenge is up. But it won't be for lack of trying!

Good luck on the Canterbury Tales! We had to read a few of them in one of my classes, it is like Shakespeare only annoyingly rhyming. hehe

I've started re-reading the Canterbury Tales - I must pick it up again.
Great book choices ;0)

I've been meaning to read Inkheart for awhile now. I will definitely have to read it before I see the movie though :)

I've been wanting to read Inkheart too, but the waiting list for this one at my library is practically endless. Hope you enjoy it!

I love the Middle Ages! I enjoyed the book Inkheart, but not a ton. So that means I think I can go see the movie and not be traumatised. ;)
