I regularly post lists of books I've taken out of the library. It turns out this idea has been turned into a weekly feature and co-hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair and Alessandra at Out of the Blue.
The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster (renewed)
Affinity by Sarah Waters (recently watched the TV adaptation and enjoyed it)
Little Dorritt by Charles Dickens (ditto the above, though I fear it's too long for my limited concentration)
Slam by Nick Hornby
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson (I must have read a review of this somewhere)
A Mercy by Toni Morrison (At last! It's rare for my local library to have such a new book in stock!)
I also picked up three Thomas the Tank Engine books for Elliot. He carries them around whenever we're in the house and I've read them to him so often since Tuesday that he knows the stories by heart and 'reads' them to himself when I'm busy with other things. Thomas is his new obsession.
