Library Loot

Library Loot

A Natural History of Unicorns
A Sense of the World
Shades of Grey
The Vow on the Heron

Clean: An Unsanitised History of Washing - Katherine Ashenburg
The Natural History of Unicorns - Chris Lavers (who could resist a title like that?)
A Sense of the World - Jason Roberts
Shades of Grey - Jasper Fforde
The Vow on the Heron - Jean Plaidy (for the Historical Fiction Challenge)

And on top of all that....

Love and Louis XIV
....Book sale loot! I always stop for a peek at the discounted books out the front of QBD whenever I happen to be passing by, and yesterday I got the bargain of the year. Love and Louis XIV: The Women in the Life of the Sun King by Antonia Fraser, in hardcover, reduced from $69.99 to $12.99. I am now one very happy history fan.

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


  1. Clean sounds super interesting. Enjoy your library loot!

  2. I enjoy Fforde's writing so much that I actually bought Shades of Grey. Still haven't read it though.

    Enjoy your loot!

  3. Great finds! Enjoy your loot!

  4. I've been eyeing that unicorn book, and Clean sounds like it has lots of potential!
