Library Loot

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and me 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.

I found this one while browsing for another book. Sounded interesting.

I am fascinated by hoarding. 

A nice contrast to the above book. 

What did you get this week? Claire's got the linky this week.

May Goal Tally

  • Learn to knit and crochet. No progress here.
  • Learn to use the sewing machine I bought. No progress here either.

  • Get 90,000 steps at least one week a month. Still working on this none.

I'm generally not  a huge non-fiction fan but this one caught my eye. 
I am a huge fan of eggs. It's the one thing I could eat daily and not tire of. Looking forward to more egg recipes.

I'm really digging vinegar right now. I'm looking for more ways to use it. 

I know I got this one before. I still want to read it.

I wanted to read this when it came out.

I'm looking forward to Meyer's new series.
