I read almost every genre & I enjoy venturing into unfamiliar territory. As a library volunteer, I'm constantly bringing home novels. Being a substitute teacher, I read lots of YA & children's books.
That was brilliant! I walked right into that one. I will write more later but I could almost smack myself for getting caught up in this drama. I finished it last night and I am still shaking my head this morning. Ha!
Has anyone else read this short book? I just curious what anyone else thought of it. I'm really hoping I can get my 2-3 book-a-year husband to read it before it's due back to the library.
I’m not liking this Terrance. He’s told Junior that he has made the list of the final individuals chosen and he keeps putting all these thoughts in his head so the poor guy can’t get them out. Think about dreams, consciousness...
Junior was happy when it was just his wife and him. Now, his head is going and Terrance is telling him how important he is, how valuable he is, that he’s vital to this plan. He’s creeping me out.
Junior needs to kick him out, board up the doors and windows, and take his woman and hide in the basement. Who is this dude?
I decided to take the 2- hour road trip to one of my favorite book stores/gift shops up south before the weather got too bad. I listened to a book on tape on the way so that helped pass the time since the trees are mostly bare and it was a cloudy, gloomy day. Driving home another 2-hours was the hard part ,as I just wanted to look at my haul.
I love this bookshop as they have such great unique gifts and fun things plus the books she carries, she has them displayed so you want to just pull up a chair and read. I almost bought a few books but then realized that they were just new covers on books I already owned. I did see a few books that I wanted but this was not a trip about me but about people on my shopping list. This shop is located in a historical, small town and this business is in an old building with three floors with old wooden stairs and floors. The nostalgia of the place just seeps out of the cracks of the wood. She places things for sale on the walls leading up the staircase and on the stairs. The checkout counter is loaded with small items, so much so that its hard to find a place to stack your items to buy them. There is just so much to see in this place that I have to walk through it twice as I miss lots of things my first time through. Here are a few of the things I bought today. I also got some bookmarks, greeting cards, some pens, and Swedish Dishcloths. I am excited about the two magnets - the cat and alligator in the dresses, for those are mine!
I had no idea what this book was when I picked it up as it was wrapped-up in plastic when I bought it. I had found it at one of our thrift stores and for .88 cents, I thought I would take a chance and just buy it. I thought my granddaughter or my daughter-in-law might like it (she's an high school language arts teacher).
This book was like new inside and the pop-outs are fantastic! They truly pop-out and they are really detailed and big. I don't know which one I like the best out of the seven that are in the book. I have never read the Chronicles of Narnia so I have nothing to go on for these illustrations but I did enjoy the little stories that accompanied these pop-outs. This is a seven double-page book where there is a pop-out in the middle of each of these pages. There were even four smaller pop-outs on a few of these pages and some of them are in a foldout.
I’ve been volunteering at our Friends of the Library Book Sale the past few days. Great to be with other readers and yet such a tempting time. Found some of my books on my TBR pile and a few others I thought, I needed to buy. Staying away tomorrow as it’s box day and that just sounds like trouble. As a floater, I stacked some piles with books that I enjoyed, so other will notice them and hopefully grab them
