To all those out there celebrating: Happy Mother’s Day! I’m not getting books, mostly because I already have too large a pile. But isn’t that the way it always is?
Oh, one more thing. I need to write a post on PopCircle (especially in the wake of Amazon buying Goodreads), but I don’t think that’s going to happen until my life settles down a bit. I will say this: I’m impressed. It’s a great way to organize books (and music and movies), and it’s incredibly easy to use. It’s fun, but I think it’ll be even more fun when more people use it, mostly because it merges social networking and organization. Go check it out here. And tell me what you think.
Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict, by Laurie Viera Regler (my friend Wendy gave me this when I visited her last fall. I’m in the mood for it now.)
Icons, by Margaret Stohl (because Shannon Hale tweeted that it was good.)
Wednesdays in the Tower, by Jessica Day George (because I loved Tuesdays at the Castle)
Apothecary, by Maile Meloy (for my work 3-5th Grade book club June selection)
The Key and the Flame, Claire M. Caterer (because she’s coming to the store in June)
Rebel Spirits, by Lois Ruby (ditto)
OCD, the Dude, and Me, by Lauren Roedy Vaughn
Hold Fast, by Blue Balliet
The Little Way of Ruthie Lemming, by Rod Dreher (my husband knows him, read this, and says I need to read it so I know why he wants a cow)
Cooked, by Michael Pollan (do I need a reason? It’s food and it’s Michael Pollan. Of COURSE I’m reading it.)
Bone 1: Out from Boneville and Bone 2: The Great Cow Race by Jeff Smith (because it’s about time I read Bone.)
What are you looking forward to on your pile?
