This week’s Library Loot: File under D for Dresden

Library Loot Aug. 26library-lootToday’s load of Library Loot (an activity sponsored by Eva and Marg) was a small batch since I still have so many left to read, including The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larrson, which I’m in the middle of.

The ones retread this week was Killer Weekend by Ridley Pearson, which is the first of a three-part series. I hope to be able to get to it this weekend.

I also picked up three new ones:

  1. Above Suspicion by Lynda La Plante the first of a series about Detective Inspector Anna Travis
  2. Storm Front: Book One of The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher
  3. Fool Moon: Book Two of The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.

I saw the latest Dresden Files book, Turn Coat, on the new book shelf and realized I never had read the series, but always wanted to read it. So, of course, being the stickler that I had to begin with the first one.

La Plante wrote the Prime Suspect series. I came across the Anna Travis series last week. Unfortunately, our library has the second, third and fourth books of the series, but not the first, so I had to go to interlibrary loan to get it. Interestingly, I got it from a former library I used to frequent, the Chester County Library in Chester County, Pa.

  1. Actually out of this Library Loot, I only read one: the Lynda La Plante book, and it really wasn’t worth it. I opted to save the Dresden Files books for another time and just didn’t get to the Pearson book.

    So yes, sometimes forced…sometimes, it’s just that my eyes are bigger than my appetite. 😉

  2. Do you always make it through your Library Load, or are you sometimes forced to return the books unread (always a sad scenario.)
