Library Loot December 29 to January 04 - Vampires and Mark Twain

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries! This week's Library Loot is at The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire HunterAbraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is the latest book from Seth Grahame-Smith of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (which I will read past the first chapter) fame.  I put down P&P&Z because I hadn't yet read the Austen original and wanted to get a sense of how well Seth had adapted the classic.  It was beginning to feel very clunky at the time. 

 So why am I bothering to pick this up?  Not sure.  Perhaps I am a victim of clever marketing.

Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1: The Complete and Authorized EditionAutobiography of Mark TwainVolume 1, the long awaited unplugged, uncensored thoughts of one of Americas greatest writers and social commentators.

Twain has been usually pretty upfront in his published writings so far, but these are the thoughts that he wished delayed until long after his death, so he could speak with his "whole frank mind".

Can't wait to read this one.
