The Wellesley Booksmith has a USED BOOKSTORE in the basement. Yes. A used bookstore. In it's basement. And I never realized until now. I immediately indulged, and purchased books for my kids and myself. My kids are earning their "new" books with chores, and I am just...reading. And the book that my ten-year-old son is drooling over? Rules, by Cynthia Lord. Yup, he's a cool kid. I'm engrossed in The Giver. And seriously looking forward to An Abundance of Katherines. I've read Linda Urban's A Crooked Kind of Perfect, but just had to own a copy, and think my son will love that as well. Plus, I met Linda at a conference, and she is just the nicest person ever.
What are you reading? Have you checked the basement of your Indie bookstore? No, really. Go take a look.
*Jon, I know you weren't thrilled with The Name of This Book is Secret, but we're giving it a go.
**Robert--notice the green box the books are on? I'm converting my file system to boxes, inspired by your office photo.
***Tracy, Anna, Casey, Tina, I'm finally reading The Giver. Woo-hoo!
