The book haul from the birthday party:
|The new Ivy + Bean! Ivy + Bean Make The Rules (Book 9) by Annie Barrows, illustrated by Sophie Blackall. Chronicle Books, 2012.|
|And the Ivy + Bean hardcover boxed set, books 1-8! Somebody's grandpa loves her very much.|
|More chapter books! Mermaid Tales: Trouble at Trident Academy (Book One) by Debbie Dadey, illustrated by Tatevik Avakyan. Aladdin, 2012. The first four Junie B. Jones books by Barbara Park. Random House, 2001. Junie B. First Grader (Book 26), 2007.|
Our current library stash:
|Yeah, don't worry. I'm not even going to try listing every title, let alone author, illustrator, and publisher.|
No shortage of new reading material. Nope.
As for me, I'm reading this:
|The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict by Trenton Lee Stewart. Little, Brown, 2012. I read The Mysterious Benedict Society books when I was still a bookseller. What can I say? I feel the need to keep reading.|
And I started this:
|The Uninvited Guests by Sadie Jones. Harper, 2012.|
And yes, there are a few titles from prior "Weekend Reading" posts that remain unfinished.
So there's a lot to choose from! And the second weekend of Julius Caesar kicks off tomorrow, and we have birthday parties to attend both Saturday and Sunday! Whew!
What are you reading?
