BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

In My Mailbox #23

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren. It's a way to share and highlight all the books we receive, even if we don't review them. l share books that I buy, that I receive for review, get from the library, borrow from a friend, etc.

I spent some time this past week updating my TBR shelf on goodreads: I deleted books that I couldn't remember why I wanted to read them, added new books, pruned some duplicates, and found books that I had read and moved them to the read shelf. With all of that activity, the number of books on my TBR shelf went from 469 to 472, which in no way reflects the quantity of books that I actually added, lol.

Click on the covers to see the goodreads descriptions.

Blog Tours


I'm participating in the blog tour for this book next month, I'll be doing a giveaway so check back if you want to win it.

Won


Random House Kids did a giveaway on Twitter for this book and I was one of the lucky winners. I took this to school; one of my classes is very into dress-ups right now so this is perfect for them. They loved it and wanted to know how long it would stay at school. I told them it would stay for as long as they were happy to read it.

    1. It does sounds scary but since they're short stories, I figure I can read slowly and pick and choose. Or just stop if I get too scared. :P

    1. It is cute but what I really like is how it works in historical figures. It's been great for discussion in the classroom.
