Library Loot (August 8-14)

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've been getting a lot of cookbooks lately. Tai went vegan a few months back and I'm at a loss about what to cook. So all of loot lately is vegan cookbooks. Or low carb cookbooks because I'm trying to do more low carb.

I love meat. But it would be easier if I went vegan too. Only have to make one meal instead of 2.

I gravitate toward Paleo but I can't seem to give up dairy.

I'm always interested in becoming a better cook. 
This one was on a list of Latin American authors. It sounded fun.

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

I am fascinated by hoarding. 

A nice contrast to the above book.

Trying to read more Woodson.


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.
