I do have an IMM post this week! I promise! I'm so sorry to be a bit late in posting but this weekend has been a little bit crazy! So, In My Mailbox is a delightful meme begun by Story Siren at her wonderful book blog that encourages bloggers to present the books they have picked up over the week through bookstores, mail, or libraries to the larger book blogging community. For more information about IMM, check out Story Siren's great page about it. My books are, as usual, all from the delightful local library system. They are an interesting mix this week. I apologize for the faulty photo; those two cookbooks just did not want to photograph nicely for my mediocre camera!
So this week I got:
Papa Please Get the Moon for Me by Eric Carle
Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney
Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
The above books are all ones I have read in the past but checked out in preparation for assignments for my Children's Resources class. They are all some of my favorites and I loved looking at them again!
Pretties by Scott Westerfeld
Bread by Eric Treuille and Ursula Ferrigno
One-Dish Vegetarian Meals
by Robin Roberts
The Clueless Vegetarian
by Evelyn Raab
As you might tell here, I am working my way through the thoroughly addicting Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld as fast as the library systems can supply me and I discovered the massive cookbook collection at the main branch of the library.
So a diverse but satisfying haul this week. Remember that this week is Banned Books Week! Celebrate our freedom to read! For more info about Banned Books Week, check out the ALA site, here. I plan to post my thoughts on the event and the issues it addresses this week in between some review updates :)
