Thanks to Shannon at River City Reading, I have something to post about… my September library haul. With a huge freelance project going on, my reading has taken a backseat these past two weeks, and sadly, some most of my library books had to go back unread. But hey, I can always go back and borrow them again. Yay for libraries!
In early September, we went on vacation, so of course the kids and I had to go on a huge book haul first. I think we came home with 37 books—lots of books about Judy Moody, The Berenstain Bears, Word Bird, and Thea Stilton. We also had some National Geographic books about the weather, birds, dinosaurs, and rocks and minerals.
My Library Books:
- A Man Called Ove, Frederik Backman (read it)
- The Sixth Extinction, Elizabeth Colbert (read it)
- Talk Nerdy to Me. The World in Facts, Stats, and Geeky Graphics, Joe Fullman (fun and entertaining)
- The Mother of All Book Lists, William Patrick Martin (this book is DANGEROUS)
- Between the World and Me, Ta-Nehisi Coates (returned unread—this book deserves much more attention than I can give it at the moment; will borrow again soon)
- Three Men in a Boat, Jerome K. Jerome (returned unread; will borrow again soon)
- Frances and Bernard, Carlene Bauer (returned unread; might borrow again)
- The Moor’s Account, Laila Lalami (returned unread; might borrow again)
- The Bohemians: Mark Twain and the San Francisco Writers Who Reinvented Literature, Ben Tarnoff (returned unread, will borrow again)
- Panama Fever: The Epic Story of the Building of the Panama Canal, Matthew Parker (returned unread, will borrow again)
- Mermaids in Paradise, Lydia Millet (DNF; not my thing)
