>Library Loot April 20th, 2011

> Library Loot is a weekly event co hosted byMarg from Adventures of an Intrepid Reader and Claire from the Captive Reader that encourages bloggers to show what great books they were able to check out from their local libraries. I love this event because I see books that I know are readily available now not something I will have to wait weeks for to come out.

My bookbag was a little light as I left the library this week. For one thing, I have way too many checked out now that I need to catch up on. And, I have quite a few reserved that just haven’t come in yet. So without further adieu…

Doctors took her cells without asking. Those cells never died. They launched a medical revolution and a multi-million dollar industry. More than twenty years later, her children found out. Their lives would never be the same.

I have thought about checking this book out for quite some time. I read enough non-fiction that I didn’t know if I wanted to add another one or not. But this story has so many legal, ethical & moral questions that just beg to be explored I had to give it a shot.

So, that’s it! That’s the only book I came home with this week. You might scoff at my wimpy Library Loot week but I was actually quite proud of my restraint!

Have a good week all, and keep those pages turning!
