Library Loot


Library Loot is a weekly event hosted by Eva and Alessandra to share the library books we find each week.

I have 4 new books on my library pile:

de-troyes1The Complete Romances of Chrétien de Troyes

Medieval romance! This is a modern prose translation and it looks wonderful.


The Maytrees by Annie Dillard

I have read a few of the Hesperus Press’s classics, so I was delighted to find one of their more contemporary books on the shelves.


The Complete Short Stories of Elizabeth Bowen

I love Elizabeth Bowen’s writing, so I was thrilled to find this. It’s a huge volume so I’m going to have to renew it as many times as I can.





Essential Pre-Raphaelites by Lucinda Hawksley

Utterly beautiful!

  1. Interesting finds. I have read Dillard’s Teaching a Stone to Speak, wonderful stuff, but that was nonfiction. I haven’t read Bowen yet. Enjoy your reading.

  2. I’m not familiar with the books you picked up but The Complete Romances of Chrétien de Troyes sounds absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to hear what you think of it 🙂
