There's A Book

This fabulous weekly recap is hosted by Shelia of One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. Each week we recap what we’ve read and look at what’s coming up this week. If you’re interested head over to Shelia’s site and get involved! It’s a blast and I may even stop by to see what you’re up to!

Here’s what we’ve been up to this week:

This has been a great week! I’ve been able to read a ton and reviewed quite a bit as well. My sweet Turkeybird made the cover of The Book Chook Cook Book! (Say that ten times fast!) We’ve also been gearing up for the Got Books? Event that’s happening on Friday and Saturday this week! Both Gina and I are tremendously excited for the incredible response we’ve had for it, we’re now at 104 blogs participating! Make sure to stop by because I’ve got a fabulous giveaway planned here (Hunger Games fans especially may want to make a mental note about it!) and stop by the main site to find more great book blogs!

I also have to brag a bit because I was finally able to figure out the coding for a table on my “Links” page! I am so excited about this! In fact I think I could go look at it again!

Last, are you a Harry Potter fan? Take a look at the post from this week, you’ll definitely get a chuckle out of it! Have a fabulous reading week!

    Great week – I’m looking forward to the Got Books event this weekend. I have to finalize my giveaway, but it’s going to be fun!

    I love If You Give a Pig a Pancake and all the other books in this series. They make my boys giggle when I read them. That reminds me I should pull out If You Give a Moose a Muffin tonight for a read with the 5-year-old.

  23. I work at the library, and I just shelved Alligator Bayor this morning!! Tomorrow, I may have to retrieve it and take a look!

  30. Gwen says:

    Loving the cover of Toy Boat. I want to have wee ones just so I can buy them books with beautiful illustrations.

    I finished The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June today. Since I don’t read YA, I don’t have a lot to compare it too, but it was a really nice change for me.

  31. Jennifer G. says:

    Robot Zot sounds like a fun read-aloud! I’m so disappointed that I’ll probably miss Got Books! I will be on a nice long weekend away though, so that’s a good thing too. Enjoy your books this week!
