Scary Library Substitute Teachers
My library assistant and I took off this week and left the library in the scary hands of these two ladies. We don't know exactly what went on, but we heard reports that these two were pretty strict and didn't put up with any nonsense in the library.
Italy in 2018
We are starting to make plans for our trip to Italy next summer with my wonderful husband, sister, and brother-in-law! We will celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Any must-sees? Any books I should read before we go?
Sunday, October 15th is the last day the Cybils will be accepting nominations from the general public. Anyone can nominate children's or young adult books published in the last twelve months. If you need ideas, take a look at Tiffa's post at The Picture Book Review. Nominate here.
What I Read This Week
I finished up three personal reads:
Then I started digging into that huge stack of Cybils this week:
I don't know how I'm ever going to settle on 5-7 winners if the other 200 nominees are as good as these first eleven. Here are my reviews:
I got in a huge stack of new books this week, but I think I'll post those pictures next week. I need to get busy reading some more of my Cybils today, I think....
What was your week like? What are you reading now?
What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them,and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book.

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news and recap the past week.
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week.
It is now being hosted here.
Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which you can share the books you've acquired.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from! I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now being hosted at The Book Date.
