Library Loot - February 18, 2009

A rather random selection picked up this week:
  • The Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans by Plutarch (for the Really Old Classics Challenge)
  • The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo (mainly because of the movie, which I haven't seen, and probably won't, but I wanted to read the book first anyway)
  • The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E Lockhart (this has been on my list of books to read for awhile, and I needed another teen book)
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (my hold of this one finally came in! Now if I can just get to it before it's due back . . .)
  • Three Girls and Their Brother by Theresa Rebeck (another Alex Award winner)
  • The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows (another hold, probably to be returned before I can read it, alas)
  • Dynamic Youth Services through outcome-based planning and evaluation by Eliza T Dresang, Melissa Gross, & Leslie Edmonds Holt (for my Research Methods - Youth Services class)
And that's it - I have hope that I will get to most of these before they are due back! Now that I've finished Le Morte D'Arthur, I don't have anything sucking away my reading time. Well, except for school . . .
If you would like to share your library loot head on over to A Striped Armchair or Out of the Blue and join us!

Now what's an Alex Award? Somethign with YA?

Yeah, here's the link from ALA:http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/yalsa/booklistsawards/alexawards/alex09.cfm. They are books that were written for adults but that "have special appeal" to teens.
