Library Loot: The Well Travelled Edition
Unlike the rest of Britain, which is apparently freezing cold with heavy rain or snow, Chelmsford is blissfully warm and sunny today so I decided to take a stroll to the library to pick up my holds. I went down for 2 books and came back with 6!
As I'm trying to tackle my Olympic Challenge which is held over at bookcrossing.com and challenges people to read one book from every country (preferably by a writer from that country) taking part in the 2012 Olympics, I went for a multicultural selection of books.
Iola by Frances Allen (which isn't pictured) (For the Women Unbound challenge)
Yaraana: Gay Writing from India edited by Hoshang Merchant (For The Challenge Which Dare Not Speak its Name)
Annie John by Jamacia Kincaid (for the Olympic Challenge)
Polish Fables by Ignacy Krasicki (for the Olympic Challenge)
Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen (for the Olympic Challenge and because I love Isben)
Water Wars: Is the World's Water Running Out? by Marq de Villiers ( for the Social Justice Challenge)
Inca Land by Hiram Bingham (for the Olympic Challenge)
The Library Loot is over at A Striped Armchair this week.
