Library Loot

Library Loot is co-hosted by Claire at The Captive Reader and Marg at The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader.  This week it's hosted by Marg at The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader so pop over and see who else is participating.

My library loot is a little late this week, sorry!

Non book items first!

  Caution: Life Ahead: Artists for Recovery

This is one of those items that came through the returns chute while I was on check in and it caught my eye. Lots of good quality Australian artists - should be good for the car!

  Deadliest Catch Season 4, Discs 1-2

We continue to work our way through this series! Just love it!

Doctor Who Season 1, Disc 1

Another series that we have caught bits and pieces of and have decided to go back to watch all of. We've also decided to introduce our 8 year old, Luke, to it. He loved it! Hopefully Disc 2 is waiting for me at work on Tuesday.

Now for the book items!

A Small Free Kiss in the Dark by Glenda Millard

This was an honour book in the 2010 Children's Book Council of Australia awards in the Older Readers category. I'm working on reading all the 2010 short listed books before the 2011 list is announced, usually around April.

Sparkle and Nightflower by Sonya Hartnett. Can't give you a link or a picture for this sorry! It was published in 1986. I remember owning a copy of it and enjoying it and being really impressed the author was only 18. I had to get it through interlibrary loan and is part of my ongoing quest to read Hartnett's back catalogue.
