Better than Christmas

Yesterday was almost better than Christmas. The LS Choicers gang celebrated the 'release' of the book LIBRARIANS' CHOICES 2006--which looks like it will be used as a supplemental textbook in the near future for two TWU courses--and discussed plans for the upcoming (in eleven or twelve months) Librarians' Choices 2007 list. There was food. There was conversation. But most importantly there were BOOKS.

Here are some of the goodies I grabbed from the shelves:

    Books that I'll be reviewing as soon as my library books are completed
  • Remembering Mrs. Roggi by Amy Hest
  • Rickshaw Girl by Mitali Perkins, illustrated by Jamie Hogan
  • How To Be A Baby by Me the Big Sister by Sally Lloyd Jones and Sue Heap
  • One Naked Baby by Maggie Smith
  • Duck, Duck, Goose by Tad Hills
  • The Annotated Cat: Under the Hats of Seuss and His Cats: Introduction and Annotations by Philip Nel
  • Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier
  • Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith
  • The Decoding of Lana Morris by Laura and Tom McNeal
  • Top Ten Uses for An Unworn Prom Dress by Tina Ferraro
  • The Off Season by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
  • Grief Girl by Erin Vincent
  • Cures for Heartbreak by Margo Rabb
  • Anatomy of A Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky
  • The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart
  • Nobody's Princess by Esther Friesner
  • Would-Be Diary of a Princess by Jessica Green
  • Exploits of a Reluctant (But Extremely Goodlooking) Hero by Maureen Fergus
  • Story of A Girl by Sara Zarr
  • The Neddiad by Daniel Pinkwater
  • A Swift Pure Cry by Siobhan Dowd
  • Booth's Daughter by Raymond Wemmlinger
  • Letters from Rapunzel by Sara Lewis Holmes
  • Corydon & The Fall of Atlantis by Tobias Druitt

Note: These goodies aren't mine to keep...so it's not quite like Christmas. But the excitement. The pure joy. The giddiness.

These books will have to wait until my sixty library books have dwindled. On the plus side, yesterday I read five more books. So that makes twenty books down so far!!!

I am always, always looking for more books to read. Especially 2007 books. Especially Advanced Readers. Authors...Publishers...you can make any day be Christmas for me!

Yes, they're all in a pile teasing me. That plus Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan (borrowed), What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones (mine, oh the glory of it), and So Not the Drama by Paula Chase (again, mine).
