Sadly, I'm not participating in BBAW. I'm kind of mad at myself for not pulling myself together more to get involved, but I'll admit to avoiding even the very thought of anything that requires me to sign up because of how crazy things are with work and my online job. I'm sure enjoying all the posts though! I know I'll be back in that groove soon, so for this year I'm just going to appreciate from the sidelines.
It's All About Books for bringing us copies of her sequel Crossed, which comes out on November 1st. I managed to win a copy that I'm going to have to read pretty quickly so I can pass it along to MANY of my students who are going to be knocking down my classroom door to borrow it. Thanks for the books Allie and for bringing them to share, Suey! Also, thanks again to Suey (from above), Natasha at Maw Books Blog and Emily at Emily's Reading Room for putting this great event together.
On the home front with reading, I managed to make it up to the gym and library (they usually go hand in hand since they are next door to one another) on Monday. Yes. It's a modern miracle! The power went out right at the end of our meetings and we were told to turn everything off. Since it was time to go anyway, that was the big push to just shut down and head home. I suffered through a workout and then ran to the library. Here's what I picked up:
Well, that is only a small dent in the number of books I have stacked around the house, in my room, on the shelves, and even on the floors. It's always great though to have plenty of options!
What great finds have you made lately?
