My Humble Aplogies...
Forgive me, dear readers, for my spotty posting as of late. The wedding is 3 months away, and it's crunch time. I've got invitations to mail, tuxes to choose, showers to attend, and DJs to book. Hopefully I'll be a faithful blogger once I've entered into wedded bliss. Right...
Anywho, I recently attended the Annual ALA Conference in New Orleans, which was great fun. My favorite pic from the trip by far is from a pub next door to our hotel very generously catering to the librarian invasion of their dear city by creating mixed drinks just for us:
I've been slowly plowing through some of the great ARCs received at the conference. Here are some that I'm most excited about reading:
Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick
Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
Crossed by Allie Condie (very ready for this sequel!)
The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb by Melanie Benjamin (loved her previous book, Alice I Have Been)
How to Save A Life by Sara Zarr
Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes by Jonatha Auxier
The Women of the Cousin's War by Philippa Gregory (nonfiction)
The Scorpion Races by Stiefvater
The Swerve by Stephen Goldblatt
