[BHE 147] My Recent Acquisition From the Library


Fats here.

Every Sunday, we share books that we have purchased and borrowed as a result of hunting amazing titles down. Because most of the materials in my library can be renewed 5 times for a period of 3 weeks per renewal, I’m still in the process of going through most of the books included in the pictures below. Some of these books have already been featured in our site this year.

What about you, dear readers?
What books have made their way into your shelves this week?

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).
