This Week’s Library/Bookstore Haul

I’ve been to the library three times this week.  The first time was for the Friends of the Library book sale.  That was insane.  I did come out of it with some books, but they are in the car so I can’t tell you what they were.  Gail Carson Levine’s Ella Enchanted was among them, as was The Chocolate War.  Also a book called Pirate Island.  I had to get it because it had the word “Pirate” in the title.

Here’s what I checked out this week:
American Born Chinese, Gene Luen Yang
Aria of the Sea, Dia Calhoun
The Midnighters Trilogy, Scott Westerfeld
A Drowned Maiden’s Hair, Laura Amy Schlitz
The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big, Round Things, Carolyn Mackler
Flight Volumes 1 – 3, Kazu Kibuishi
The Last Days, Scott Westerfeld
Make Lemonade, Virginia Euwer Wolff
Peeps, Scott Westerfeld
So Yesterday, Scott Westerfeld
Weedflower (CD), Cynthia Kadohata

At Borders this week I bought all of Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies trilogy, as well as Dana Reinhardt’s Harmless.

Because I haven’t turned in any of the not-yet-reviewed books from my last trip, or Pucker, I have a total of 21 books out now.  It feels like summertime when I was little.
