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.
I've been interested in the Marquis de Sade since seeing Quills. I put Justine on my Fill In The Gaps challenge. The library did not have Justine listed as a separate book, so I choose a few of his books instead. Although Justine is contained in the book on the right (The Selected Writings of The Marquis De Sade). I also choose The Gothic Tales of the Marquis de Sade and Philosophy in the Boudoir, all translated into English. While I can read some French, I'm more comfortable reading it in English. 
I also finished North of Beautiful and posted a review on the FITG blog. I didn't love it as much as I hoped I would. There were a couple of scenes that made it worth reading.
What about you? What did you get this week?


  1. A friend keep telling me to watch Quills

  2. Your loot sounds interesting - hope you enjoy it!

  3. don't want to know all the books I dragged home!! LOL!! These look interesting. I've been wanting to watch Quills...

  4. Oh, Quills is a great movie! It too, made me interested in the Marquis but I've yet to pick up any of his works. I look forward to hearing what you think of them.

  5. De Sade makes for good reading. I'll be curious to see what you think of his works. Enjoy your loot!

  6. Oh, my, the Marquis de Sade. I have to admit that this wasn't I'd see when I came here. ;) However, to each, his or her own. :) It will be interesting to hear what you think of the Marquis.


Shiny! I love comments.
