Library Loot (November 17)

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair and Marg at Reading Adventures 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! Want to share your loot? Marg has the Mr. Linky this week!

Another week of graphic-novels-only loot, although I took out fewer books this time. (I still have a backlog of books I keep renewing—not because I haven’t read them yet, but rather because I haven’t reviewed them!) So here’s this past week’s loot:

First, the last two volumes of Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan, Pia Guerra et al.: Motherland (which I’ve read already but wanted to reread), and Whys and Wherefores.

Next, La fin du monde (literally, “the end of the world”) by Pierre Wazem and Tom Tirabosco, which is in French (and doesn’t appear to have been published in English). I heard about this book from Caustic Cover Critic. And last but not least the complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (also in French). I’ve already read the first half, so I’m looking forward to seeing how the story ends! Has anyone read any of Satrapi’s other books? I’m looking for further recommendations.


  1. The only one of Satrapi's books I've read is Persepolis, but I'd love to read more. Enjoy!

  2. I really enjoyed Persepolis but had a hard time getting into The Last man. Enjoy!!

  3. I have only read Persepolis. The movie is also excellent.
