A couple of days ago, I was wondering what books I could read for the Chunkster Challenge. Now I’m wondering how I’ll finish my borrowed chunksters in four weeks! 651 pages in Wolf Hall, 742 in Rebels and Traitors ... and they’re both way too big to squeeze into my handbag. Looks like my evening knitting will have to be put on hold for a while.

And I’ve only now realised that every novel in that pile is historical!

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg.


  1. I love that every book is historical! Good looking pile of books you have there.

  2. I love that I've got a couple of exotic locales in there! It's high time I branched out beyond ye olde England.

  3. Is it a sign of my book nerdiness that I often choose which purse to carry based on whether it's big enough to hold the book I want with me? lol
