Welcome back everyone! I know everyone is returning and recovering from BEA. Despite the fact that I did not go to BEA, I took it easy last week when it came to my blog. I had some prescheduled posts for Armchair BEA that were posted but I decided not to post any reviews just because there weren’t very many people around to read them!
I had planned to do a little book shopping to celebrate (not going to) BEA but I didn’t go all out. I stopped at Half Price Books and picked up a few things Thursday during their Memorial Day sale. I also got a TON of library book.
From Half Price Books:
The Sea, John Banville
The Night Watch, Sarah Waters
How the Garcia Girls Lost Thier Accents, Julia Alvarez
Ella Minnow Pea, Mark Dunn
Breaking Her Fall, Stephen Goodwin
From the Library:
Dismantled, Jennifer McMahon
Annie’s Baby, Anonymous
The Mysterious Affair at Styles, Agatha Christie
The Summeer Before, Ann M Martin
Letter to my Daughter, George Post
What the Dead Know, Laura Lippman
Kristy’s Great Idea, Ann M Martin and Raina Telgemeier
Admission, Jean Hanff Korelitz
Dawn, Ann M Martin
Little Billy’s Letters, Bill Geerhart
This week I finished Waiting for Columbus, by Thomas Trofimuk. I then read Columbine, by Dave Cullen (absolutely wonderful book!). Friday, I began The 19th Wife, by David Ebershoff, which I am enjoying so far. I also read some Baby-Sitters Club books this week–The Summer Before and Dawn, both by Ann M Martin and a graphic novel adaption of Kristy’s Great Idea by Ann M Martin, done by Raina Telgemeier. So as far as reading, it’s been a very good week for me.
I’m not sure how much reading I’ll get done over the rest of this holiday weekend. My husband and I are having a cookout tomorrow for Memorial Day so we have a lot of work to do over the next day! I hope everyone is getting back into the swing of things now that BEA is over. Have a great Sunday and Memorial Day!
