Library Loot


I spent two hours in the Longview Library this afternoon.  My sister cut me loose with her card again. My entire haul is pictured above.  Top row (and far left book) are NF and the bottom row novels.  First visit since January.

I'm going to list them below because I need the list for my records anyway but that's all I can manage tonight.  I'd hoped to comment on each one and share why I'm enthused about it (and I am enthused about each one) but it is past my bedtime again and it has been an especially long day.
