Library Loot: First visit in November!

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader 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!

This is actually the first time I've  physically been to my local library in over 4 months, other than to drop donation books off. Ever since they launched their ebook rental campaign, I've been devouring books on my Nook and my Ipad :).

Today was a gorgeous day though, so I ventured out to go see what was on the shelves. Be proud! I didn't go overboard this time!

 I've been wanting to read The Penderwicks for ages, ever since I saw it mentioned in The Horn Book a few times. Somehow it just never made it into my arms though, as I was distracted by shiny new hardcovers. That was changed today! I can't wait to dive into this lighthearted story.

Rot & Ruin is yet another book that's eluded me constantly! This one because it was always checked out. Well, ha! I got it this time. Zombies, brotherly bonding, and the question of humanity. How can you go wrong?

Finally, I had to pick up Shine. Ever since the National Book Award debacle, I've been interested in this book. I hadn't even heard of it before that, but the premise sounded like something right my my alley. Plus the cover is gorgeous isn't it? More so in person, trust me.

So that's what I got this week! Anything new in your library book baskets?
