Finally, Library Loot!

I finally got my faculty ID card and away I went to my library.

MY LIBRARY. I'll never get tired of saying that.

Because I'm a faculty member, I can take books out for one month. Students have to turn their books back in after one week.

Anyway, here's what I checked out on my maiden voyage:

Little Women and the Feminist Imagination: Criticism, Controversy, Personal Essays - edited by Janice M. Alberghene and Beverly Lyon Clark

Fiction, Film and Faulkner: The Art of Adaptation - Gene D. Phillips

Whoo! You can't find stuff like this in the bookstore too often.

Congrats on the library access--and finding a couple of interesting reads there :)

Literary Feline said...

That is a nice perk! Enjoy your books!

Congratulations. Know the feeling of getting a library card. I went to the library today too. :)

Both of those sound incredible! (and I'm so bummed that Mizzou lost...)

CONGRATS! That card will be put to great use!

Gentle Reader,
Thanks, it's really fun to go there!

Literary Feline,
I laid in bed most of the morning with the Little Women criticism.

Dark Opheus,
What's your library like? Is there an English section, or is it mixed in?

Yeah....I'm in mourning about Mizzou. Damn Connecticut!

I'm going back tomorrow!

Both of these sound good! Can't wait to hear about them. Things seem to be falling in place for you.

lucky duck! i volunteer at the library once a week (for two years now!) and they still make me pay my fines. hhahah. i thought i'd get amnesty--that's why i volunteered. instead, they're building a new wing...and i think i'm the sole funder.
