Me on This Week's Book Week (59)

This Week's Book Week is rather similar to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews only with far more rambling and a less witty title. ;)

Summer!........ yeah, I guess. Just like when people can't handle snow here, people can't handle heat. I'm always astounded when hardware stores have "We're all sold out of portable air conditioners" signs in their front windows. Where was the one you bought last year? It looks like it's going to be warm here this summer with brief periods of cooling off.

Impromptu BC book blogger meet-up! :) All our schedules seem to be a bit strange, but Thursday evening we were all free so we met up at the usual place: a Starbucks in a bookstore. :)

I think this weekly post needs more book-related news. ... But I don't think I heard any book-related news this week. The schedule for SDCC came out, I saw that. I'd like to go one year, to Comic Con and to BEA (maybe not in the same year). :)

Reviews this coming week will feature Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz (Tuesday) and Sweet Shadows by Tera Lynn Childs (Friday). :)
Control by Lydia Kang (from Nafiza)

Borrowed from the library:
Fables Volumes 1-4 by Bill Willingham and lots of different artists (I realized that, with Saga, I'm at the beginning of the series, and it could be years until it ends. Then Christa at More Than Just Magic suggested I try Fables. And I was happy because there are 18 volumes out, plus a bunch of extra sort of related books, so I imagine this will keep me entertained for a while.)


  1. Fables looks interesting! Happy Reading :-)

  2. Nice looking books. I hope you enjoy them. Come and see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. I had huge weeks. Happy reading!

  3. Nice haul!! And I see you're currently reading Vicious! I'm about 3/4 through and I'm really liking it!

  4. Yay so happy you're giving Fables a shot! I hope you love it as much as I do.
