My Humble Aplogies...

Bart Simpson chalkboard



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:

Welcome Librarians New Orleans


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
