Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Readerthat 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.

One day this week, I unplugged my e-reader from my computer without disconnecting it. The poor thing just froze, I mean froze. I was devastated. I tried this and I tried that and just as I was about to cry big crocodile tears, I got it to reset. I promptly went to the library site and started downloading books.

Growing up King by Dexter Scott King ~ Kindle

The World War II Reader by Robert Leckie ~ e-book

My Secret War by Mary Pope Osborne ~ e-book

The Civil War Reader 1862: by James M. McPherson ~ e-book

The Quest for Freedom by Yvonne de Ridder Files ~ e-book

E-reader is happy now.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
