Library Loot – 9th January

This week, I didn’t not really plan to go to the library. I have a rather hefty pile of books that I simply must read and return. I have had some of these books months!

So, having completed a vow of no books, I promptly visited and used the automated machine and renewed the books I already had. I then borrowed another 3 books. I have NO will power when it comes to books.
Here is this week’s loot
Nigella Christmas: Food, Family, Friends,…Living Gluten-Free for Dummies: UK Edition…Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs

Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs has been on my wish list for sometime. I spotted it and picked it up fairly quickly.

Nigella is almost an old friend. Just before Christmas I watched the final 20 minutes or so of her Christmas programme and knew that I wanted the book. It is a whopper, with a whopper price – £25. It oozes loveliness and it followed me home from the library. Not a brilliant move, as it was a fairly heavy book to carry, but having had a look through it was worth the weight! This book will be the subject of a few Weekend Cooking posts I am sure.

Gluten Free for Dummies is a book, in preparation for me. We are wondering if there is a Gluten problem with hubby, so doing a little bit of reading in advance. Over the years I have had various patients with Gluten issues, but when its your own family it takes a different slant.

Just when things could not get any better, I got home to three books that I had hoped to review.

The Gray Ghost Murders: A Novel by Keith…The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society: A…Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker by Jennifer…

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!
