Library Haul: Book Friends Are Here!

It's time for a look at my Library Haul, the tower of goodies I picked up during my weekly trip to the libraries (TL, ML, and CL). Sideways are borrowed, upright are purchased used from library Friends.

Here is this week's haul:

  • Another stack of manga, although unfortunately most of them require an earlier volume first - my hold list is now quite extensive. I'm reading Natsume's Book of Friends out of order, though - it doesn't fully require consecutive reading.
  • Picked up Emma Volume 1, by the author that does A Bride's Story. This is his English maid story. I had originally dismissed it, but now I'm curious. Also got A Bride's Story Volume 3 - this will determine if I collect them myself or not.
  • Already read I Am Here Volume 1, and was really impressed. A review to come soon on my Japanese Blog!
  • Wanted to learn how electricity works, so grabbed a children's book on the subject. (Anything older and it would probably go right over my head.)
  • Finally got Timeless, Book 5 of the Parasol Protectorate Series by Gail Carriger. Unfortunately, I still haven't re-read past Book 1, so I have to decide to simply read the last book, or get my butt in gear and re-read the others already! The overwhelming amount of manga right now certainly isn't helping any.
  • Got Doctor Who Series 6, Part 2! Can't wait to see what happens with River Song.
  • Remembered to get Fleetwood Mac's self-titled CD - I really like Landslide, and have discovered a few other good songs on it as well.

What interesting items have you picked up from the library lately?


  1. So I'm curious why you picked up the Eyewitness book.

    1. I'm creating an alternate reality for Project BW and they use electricity for practically everything, so I thought I should at least brush up on the basics. Anything older than a Juvenile book can prove hard for my brain to wrap around.
