Library Loot

I have never participated in any type of blog schedule, but liked the idea of Library Loot since I do make frequent trips to different libraries. Yesterday I had the opportunity to spend a little time at the library by myself and found some selections I am excited about:

The Comeback Season by Jennifer Smith- I started this one while I was still at the library trying to download some files that were taking too much time.

Tennyson by Lesley M.M. Blume
Nim at Sea by Wendy Orr - to read to my kiddos at bedtime since they loved Nim's Island
Love, Meg by C. Leigh Purtill
A Song For Harlem by Patricia McKissack in her Scraps of Time series
Home and Other Big Fat Lies by Jill Wolfson

This is literally a drop in the bucket of the library books I already have checked out since I have a fairly large stack of books I am still trying to work my way through (most of which are adult books). I am currently reading Sing Them Home by Stephanie Kallos, who wrote Broken For You in 2004.

Today was a day off of school since it was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day so we amused ourselves by trying out a new knitting shop, CrazyGirl Yarn Shop. What a great place! My seven year old got a few instructions and has been trying to work on her own scarf this afternoon. Stopping there gave me the itch to knit again, too, so now it is a matter of finding a pattern that I think I can be successful with. Knitting might seriously cut into my reading time.
