Library Loot


Library Loot is a new weekly event hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair to share the library books we find each week. It’s a wonderful idea. I am a lifelong library lover and I am lucky enough to be a member of a private subsription library as well as having a good public library service.

Here are my latest five finds:



The Red House Mystery by A A Milne is a 1920s mystery that I didn’t know existed until I spotted this lovely little volume in the library.

Knights of Love by Jane Tozer is a new Cornish interpretation of The Lais of Marie de France.

Memoirs of A Novelist by Virginia Woolf is a slim volume of early short stories, ourtesy of the wonderful Hesperus Classics.

Renoir, my Father by Jean Renoir is a family memoir for my Art History Reading Challenge.

Books, Baguettes and Books by Jeremy Mercer is another memoir, in this case of a bookish nature.

  1. Those do sound like great finds. The mystery by Milne and the short stories by Woolf are new to me. I’m going to love this new weekly feature. And thank you for visiting by book blog.

  3. Jackie, thank you so much for the award! A subscription library works in the same way as an old fashioned public library, but rather than being state sponsors it is funded by donations, fundraising and members paying an annual subscription. I pay £25 per year and it is worth every penny! The place and the collection of books are wonderful. I will work up a post about it when I have time, but in the meanwhile here is a link to the website:
