Library Loot

For a while (well, it felt like a while - it was probably more like a week), I had been refusing to let myself check out new books unless of course I had already reserved it at the library and it came in. Then today I went to one of the four libraries I use and managed to lose all form of self control and check out a stack of new books to read. The good news is that at least checking out a lot of books is free. The bad news is that my stacks of library books are huge and not really getting any smaller.

Here's what new loot I'm adding to my old:

Under This Unbroken Sky by Shani Mitchell
The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman

Young Adult
Funny How Things Change by Melissa Wyatt
Puppet by Eva Wiseman
America in the 1970s by Marlee Richards

Childrens and Middle Grade
Lines that Wiggle by Candace Whitman (picture book)
Matisse on the Loose by Georgia Bragg (chapter book)
Tango:The Tale of an Island Dog by Eileen Beha (chapter book)
Gracias Thanks by Pat Mora (picture book)
Just Like a Baby by Juanita Havill (picture book)
I'm Your Peanut Butter Big Brother by Selina Alko (picture book)
The Twelve Days of Springtime by Deborah Lee Rose (picture book)
Pip in the Grand Hotel by Johannes Hucke (picture book)

Thank goodness school is done this week which I am hoping provides a little more time for me to read. I will need all of June and July just to get through what I have sitting here at this rate!
