In My Bookbag #2

Once again, here is In My Bookbag.  This is my version of In My Mailbox, a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

I do have quite a few books this week, but I am really bummed that none of my library holds came in.  I’m waiting for a few should-be-awesome titles to arrive, but they’re all currently marked as in transit.  I blame the crazy Massachusetts winter, and the snow days that public libraries have had to take.

Nonetheless, I did go to my local public library’s book sale this morning.  I thought I was being smart by getting there 10 minutes before the library opened.  However, when I arrived there already was a HUGE line of people, ready and eager to get their mitts on every serviceable book in view.  Despite all of the pushing, shoving, and general book-crazed madness, I got a few.

Duh! The Stupid History of the Human Race by Bob Fenster

This looked like it had the potential to be hilarious.  Why not?

 

 

 

 

Lake Wobegon Summer 1956 by Garrison Keillor

I enjoy listening to Garrison Keillor talk about Lake Wobegon on A Prairie Home Companion.

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

I read The Virgin Suicides my freshman year of college, and absolutely loved it.  I’m not sure why I’ve put off reading this one, but I finally have it.  It also won the Pulitzer, for whatever that’s worth.

 

 

 

 

Sixth Grade Secrets by Louis Sachar

How could I pass up a Sachar book I haven’t read yet?!

The Tin Woodman of Oz by L. Frank Baum

My dad used to read me the Oz books before bed when I was a little kid, so for some time now I’ve wanted to go back and read them all in order.  I’m one step closer to having the books ready :-)

That’s all I got from the book sale, but then I also checked out a few titles last week.

 

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

I have to know what the hype is about, so I picked this up from the library where I work since the holds at the public library would take ages to get through.

 

 

 

 

The Space Between Trees by Katie Williams

The cover is a really cool thick cutaway overlay onto purple endpapers.  The image doesn’t do the binding justice.

A Blue So Dark by Holly Schindler

This one has a beautiful cover, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a heartbreaker.

Siren by Tricia Rayburn

This one sounds good and creepy!

    A few years back I tried reading all the Wizard of Oz books. I think I got 6 or 7 books in, before I stopped. But part of me wants to go and finish the rest of the series!
