Egads. Sunday. Survivor of the fall book sale for the library. Yesterday was our bag sale… $2 for as many books as you can put in a bag. We were a little nervous because we found out on Friday that the Homecoming parade would shut down our sale for a little over an hour as they passed by our road.
Never fear – we made a little square flyer and went and handed them out to participants… you know… like people do in parades… it was… well…
look for yourself:
There was a good 30 to 40 in the room for most of the day. Our sales went over $6,000. I am so excited about that but OH SO TIRED! Even my arms ache!
That all said… as you can imagine this craziness going on this past week really put a damper on my Banned Book Week plans. Thank goodness for all of you who linked your own banned book posts up to the week plans. Not only did I read each of your posts, you inspired me to look for a couple more titles that I was unaware of.
If you have not had a chance to look at the banned book posts, please do. There are some amazing posts and giveaways… and you may learn something new about a book that you love! 🙂
As for me… I was just too tired to read. I am in the middle of two banned books that I should be able to finish up today, and an audio book which is not only a banned book but also our book club read for October.
Here are the books that came into my home this week (not including book sale books – those I will post later)
The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare – audio (ooh right???? Two amazing authors!)
Five Days Left by Julie Lawson Timmer– audio (oh this is one I am so looking forward to!)
Somewhere Safe with Someone Good by Jan Karon – audio (new Mitford Series!)
ASTRAY by Amy Christine Parker – audio
Nightmares! by Jason Segal – audio
Broken Monsters by Lauren Beuke – audio
BURN by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge -audio (I LOVE this series!)
Get Even by Gretchen McNeil – purchased after reading about this on another blog.
Yeah… I think I am going to need another cabin weekend by myself to have a reading BLITZ. 🙂 Now off to finish the Weekend Cooking post I started yesterday and never was able to get back to 🙂
