I left the library without Atlas Shrugged, but I did get a few treasures: A Thousand Splendid Suns, The Woman in White, Slaughterhouse-Five, Never Let Me Go, Lord of the Flies, and A Mad Desire to Dance (an Elie Wiesel book I'd never even heard of). Not to be defeated, I took my family down the street to Bookstore Santa Cruz where I picked up my copy of Atlas Shrugged, and then, because I couldn't help myself, To Kill a Mockingbird, which I was shocked to realize I didn't own and Wolf Hall, because I love historical fiction revolving around the Tudors.

I'm not saying I'm not buying "books of the hour." They're just going on my Kindle app, saving my shelves for these gems that I can pass down to my kids. I have a lot of work to do.
What literary loot did you dig up this weekend? Any shelf cleaning?
