Library Update 4/24/17

I kind of freaked out a little when I opened my library app and it said I had 23 books checked out. Then I realized that 8 of those were for Chris to study up before he goes on his trip to Europe this summer. Whew! That still leaves 15 books, so that's a chunk, but let's pick through that and see what I have.

Giant Days Vol. 1 by John Allison - This is the author of the Bad Machinery graphic novels that I also enjoy. This one is about a group of first year college kids and all their drama. It's cute. I like it.

The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook by Mary Younkin - I am still cooking out of this one. I might just go ahead and buy it. Everything I've chosen so far has been yummy and fairly easy to do, so I think it's a winner.

The following are all Sequoyah books I have acquired to try to get a bunch of them read. Most of these are on audiobook so I can listen to them in the car without using up valuable personal reading time: I Am Princess X by Cherie Priest, Most Dangerous: Daniel Ellsberg and the Secret History of the Vietnam War by Steve Sheinkin, The Reader by Traci Chee, The Seventh Most Important Thing by Shelley Pearsall, A Step Toward Falling by Cammie McGovern, The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon, The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis, The Steep and Thorny Way by Cat Winters.

School Success for Kids With Asperger's Syndrome by Stephan Silverman - This can probably go back to the library since we've got a system in place for Alyssa at school.

Bad Machinery Vol. 4 by John Allison - This one I seemed to have misplaced. I thought I returned it, but I can't find it anywhere.

Bad Machinery Vol. 5 by John Allison - Losing the last one didn't stop me from grabbing the next one in the series.

By the Book - This is excerpts from the By The Book section of the New York Times Literary Review. This was always my favorite part of that magazine, so I figured I'll just cut to the chase and read a whole bunch of them packaged together.

So that's a ton of things checked out to me. Not overwhelming at all. One of the reasons I do this little series is so I can keep track of what I've got checked out. At least once a month, I will get it together.
