Tuesday: We Bought a Zoo arrives.
Wednesday: Perfect on Paper arrives from author Maria Murnane. Thank you! Miles From Nowhere and Oh, the Humanity! arrives.
Thursday: Another trip to the comic book store got me several new very very cute things! I got Johnny Boo: The Best Little Ghost In the World (very cute), Ojingogo (even cuter, much click here to see!), The New York Four and Janes in Love (both Minx graphic novels). The library sale was extra special this day, everything was 50 percent off! I picked up the Best American Short Stories of 1997, I collect these. I also got A Rumination of Cows, for giggles and Consumer Joe, I seem to remember getting a kick out of this in a bookstore some years ago.
Friday: I decided it wouldn't hurt to see if Barnes and Noble had Death by Latte and they did. Got it on my weekly morning treat run. The book is so little and bright and cute. I love the die cuts! Got home to find an ARC of Cycler from a bookmoocher. I really like this particular ARC, it has low-res cover art (the art work is fuzzy) the title design is different from the final and it has marking showing that the actual dust jacket will have a foil background. It's truly a working design, which I love to see!
Saturday: On Friday something came in the mail saying an envelope was trying to be delivered but needed delivery confirmation so I went and got it and it was the book, Falling Under from author Danielle Younge-Ullman . Thank you! I won this book through Author Buzz, a great way to find out about new books! Now this is where I lose total control... I went to a local used bookstore to just have a peek around, hadn't been there in months and I leave with The Tipping Point (which I've read and actually got from bookmooch once but the copy wasn't as nice as I liked so I got rid of it) Bloom (which I've read) and The Secret of Boys to add to my little collection of Hailey Abbott books.
So how about you, what did you buy or not buy this week? How are you book ban challenge participants doing, is it harder than you thought, easier than you thought?
