Shelve It: Obsessed With the Library

weekly feature to share the books magan and estelle are adding to their bookshelves each week

HAPPY SUNDAY!

Did you guys have the best weekend? I sure hope so. I’m writing this early so I’m trying to predict the future. I am going to have fun catching up with Maggie on Saturday afternoon. I will read two of my library books and one of my actual review copies. I’ll be sure to keep you updated on my progress because you are dying of curiosity, aren’t you? AREN’T YOU?

Ahem.

As you will see in my video, I’ve spent a lot of time going to the library lately. That and the fact that my new job is VERY far away from the B&NI would frequent every month, my wallet is looking good in that department. I’ve also been getting a lot of exercise (as you will see in my video) and well, just watch the video, will ya??

Shelve It: Saturday & Summer

weekly feature to share the books magan and estelle are adding to their bookshelves each week

Oh man. It’s been about a month since I did one of these. But hello! I’m here. How are you all doing? It’s been a busy few weeks so far — friends visiting, lots of work changes, James finally got a small break from school, the weather is nice — you know the drill. Basically the books keep piling up and I haven’t shared them with you. Well, well, well. Today is your lucky day. Hope you find something in these piles that catches your eye!

Oh hey, it’s the first day of summer! Do something fun! And go wish Anna of Anna Reads a happy birthday!
