Buy-A-Book Club Update:
Since my last post explaining the plan to buy one book a month, I have indeed bought a book. I have actually bought three books. They are:
Magickeepers, Erica Kirov
The Brilliant Fall of Gianna Z., Kate Messner
Skippyjon Jones--Lost in Spice, Judy Schachner
And, at the request of my son, we bought one of the above titles twice, so he could give it to his friend for his birthday.
So, my goal of buying one book a week was surpassed times four. Evidently I am not to be trusted with a credit card in an independent book store.
All kidding aside, I love my purchases. They are wonderful books. Every book was signed by the author, except for Magickeepers, and I intend to get that one signed as well. In fact, we had to take out an additional copy of Magickeepers from the library, since three family members were reading it at once, and one copy just wasn't enough! Check out the GOLD Moonbeam Children's Book Award it just won.
And the Brilliant Fall of Gianna Z.? That's the book that my son bought for his friend. Who says that boys won't read a book with a girl as the main character?
Look for reviews coming up on the blog for both Magickeepers and The Brilliant Fall of Gianna Z. I've already posted a review of Lost in Spice.
I recommend them all!
What do you recommend? What are you reading and/or buying?
