Library Loot

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg 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.
 
Oh, I'm in trouble. I put both of these on my library queue months ago. Both lists were over 1000 people. I assumed that one would come and a few months later the other one would come. I never expected them to arrive at the same time. No one bother me for the next 3 weeks. I'll be reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Help. I cannot reloot these!
What did you get this week?

  14. I've had management issues with my library queue as well; nothing for weeks and then a truckload! Luckily we now have a "freeze hold" option so if I notice in time I can stagger the arrivals.

    Both those books look good -- they are on my TBR list.
