Do you get excited about new books?
I know that I do!
They don’t even have to be brand-spanking new books. “New to me” books work just as well. (Though there is something to be said for that new book smell. Am I right? I could spend an entire day in a book store, if time allowed. But that is a blog for another time…)
Today, I would like to share with you some of the newness that will be coming to a shelf near you!
Behold, our literary haul.
Some of these I have found here and there, some have been donated.
Our First Lady of the Raven brought in Trust No Aunty. I flipped through it the other day, and it’s hilarious. Page 15, and I’m laughing so hard I’m crying. Let me tell you, this is one of those books that I absolutely would never give away if I owned it.
This represents probably a quarter of what I might accumulate in a week. It seems that I am constantly finding something that I think you guys might love, and sometimes I come in to find an entire bag of books that someone has graciously donated to us. (Score!! And thank you!)
I’m also excited about this little guy.
Just look at it!
Isn’t this adorable?
This is the first encounter I’ve had with this baby book company. The back reads that it ” is a fashionable way to introduce your child to the world of classic literature.” Which I think is absolutely fantastic.
One last thing that I love, and it’s not quite new.
This Handbook for the Recently Deceased journal has been floating around our shelves for a couple of weeks now.
It’s meant to be written in!
I have even included a few conversation starters/writing prompts. And yet, the pages remain miraculously and invitingly clean, apart from where I have jotted down questions.
Feel free to put your two cents in, even if it’s not related to a thought already in the book. Or draw a thing. (I would love to open it one day and see a fabulous portrait of Beetlejuice. Just throwing that out there.)
Stop in and see what’s new!
If there’s a certain kind of book that you would like to see on the shelves, just let me know. I can keep an eye out.
