Good morning! Welcome to the Thursday of Banned Books week. But wait… where am I??? I have left at 4 am this morning for the book sale at the Library.
Why so early?
Because I am in competition to be first in line. I know.. I know… ridiculous for sure… but honestly… it is fun. In the spring I missed my number one spot by 5 minutes because this girl *finger pointing at me* stopped to get coffee. I know! I really need to control my caffeine urges!
I have a strategic plan… I have joked for years about camping out the night of the sale… and this time. I am doing it.
Mmmmm hmmmm….. that’s the way
we I roll.
SO thats what I am doing.. more on the sale and all that later…. for now.. lets add our newest contributors to Banned Book Week:
Kym at My Book Nook shares her thoughts on the banned book, The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls
Erin at Quixotic Magpie talks about the banning of Judy Blume’s Blubber. (She has a great quote about bullying on this post!)
Over at Eclectic Alli there is talk about Favorite Banned Books!
Kelly from the Well-Read Redhead brings us information on Go Ask Alice -who the author is not so anonymous after all… AND she has a giveaway!
Bex from An Armchair By The Sea writes about why Banned Books Week is not to be celebrated – great post and GIVEAWAY!!!
My close encounter with Of Mice and Men and a Giveaway too!
And of course do not forget the posts and giveaways from earlier this week… they are still going on!
That’s it… because really… I am not here anyway! 😀 Banned book post later today!

I love library book sales. Here’s hoping to get the #1 spot.
Thanks for the links.
I arrived at 4:45 am. The second person came at 5:44….. love the early birds!
Good luck at the sale! That is worth getting up for that early in the morning 🙂
I just love chatting with everyone 😉
Living in a tiny town, my local library (open two days a week, 4 hours each time) actually looks forward to our monthly donations of all the books I read, and the books the girls get from the monthly book orders and book fair at school! Let alone sell what little they have. HaHaHA… The Librarian has been excited about the Ramona Quimby donations as of late.
This was a nice way to start the day, Sheila 🙂 Your “first in line” thing cracked me up! Can’t wait to hear if you succeeded! lol
Check out the post again… I just added two pictures. 😀
LOL!!! You really did set up a tent! LOL And there you are, first and ready to greet all the newcomers 😀
Right? But now… 8 pm and just got home… I am SOOOOOO tired!
Well, that is one loooong day, woman, and if you weren’t tired, I’d like the number for your “bionic parts” supplier 😉
WTG with the Tent! 🙂 Totally pulled that off!
LOL I did 🙂
Your commitment to the book sale is awesome! We have a small library so our sale is not that impressive but I go every time and usually bring home some new friends. 🙂
Will we see your book loot later this week?
Yes – I will post my book booty later 😀
I love your enthusiasm for the sale!
It was fun but I am wiped out now.
Hahahahahaa! C’mon!!!! You did NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
Oh…. but I did. 😛
Hope it was a mild early morning! Look forward to your loot!
I have never been that excited about a library sale to camp out. lol Maybe if I didn’t all ready have so many books I might be? Hope you had fun!
Hope you got a nap or something after that! So much fun, though.
You are so funny-what time did it open?
How cute….I hope it wasn’t too cold during the night.
