Library Thursday Blog Hop

The Library Thursday Blog Hop is a new weekly meme hosted by Lah @ LazyGirl Reads.

Each week, I will list which books I've picked up, put on hold, skimmed through at the library. It's a great way to see what other bloggers are browsing through while we are waiting for new titles to come out. And it's a blog hop! So you can make some more bloggy friends. YAY!

My books this week:

I hope this isn't cheating. In December my library called to tell me they had some Reader's Digest Condensed Books that were donated, and if I was still interested I could have them. I had recently told them that if anyone donates any I would be interested in them, since they do not put them on their shelves. They had three books, I took two, I already had the other one. BTW, I had to give fifty cents a piece for them.  Now since I decided in 2011 to try and read more Library books, I think I will like this new meme.

When I was raising a family of five children, and a husband, lots of farm animals, etc. I didn't have the time to read that I have now. Therefore, I was a member of the Reader's Digest Condensed Book Club. About four times a year I received my book, with four or five condensed books in them. It took me about  the 3 months to get it read back them. I fell in love with these books, and get mine now at yard sales, and library book sales, anywhere I can find them. Did I say I love them...hee, hee.


  1. Oo..i think i have one Reader's Digest Condensed Book, my Dad bought it a year or two ago!Just to be sure- An RCB is like one put-together book of 4 different books right? They don't have any other relation to Reader's Digest other than the fact that RD does the putting-together?

    Here is what i got from my library...

  2. We used to have to long book shelves of those in my home where I grew up. I see some of them at my mom's house still, but I don't think she gets them anymore, she just kept her favorites. I never read them, amazingly. They were too high on the bookshelf for me to read. Above the 1940's Encyclopedias. Hope you enjoy your Readers Digest condensed books.

  3. HAHA cheating?! Of course not!! I'm absolutely thrilled that you are participating! Thanks for this post :-]

  4. Oh I didn't know Reader's Digest did that? That's so cool and such a great idea!

  5. I grew up with a house full of condensed books, because my Dad was in the same position as you: loved to read, no time to do it properly. He was a member of the Good Companions book club and I still have some of them.

    Later, he moved up the management ladder and had more time and we acquired a considerable number of 'real' books too.

  6. My dad read the condensed books too! I remember reading a few of them.

  7. Great post! I don't think it's cheating.

  8. I love the photo. This sounds like a fun Hop. :)

  9. Happy 2011 Gramma Ann! I've never read those, but they sound interesting. I will be interested to hear your recommendations as I am trying to make more time to read. I've really missed it.

  10. We used to get the Reader's Digest Condensed Books when I was a kid. I used to read a lot of them. That's where I first met Jane Eyre. I think I will go look her up in Kindle and read it again.
