Today I am thankful

Today I am thankful that my parents let me read banned books, old books, over my age limit books, books that I should have outgrown, books that nobody else let their kids read, silly books, awful and trashy and horrible books, really just any books.

I am so thankful for their reading! My mom reads anything she can her hands on (and I was proud to be able to put a Kindle in her hands this year). My dad read magazines and trade publications and loved audio books on long car trips (he usually got the gist of it, but he never really paid much attention to the details).

They were readers. Now I am a reader. I get to inspire others to read.

THAT TOTALLY ROCKS!

Today I am thankful for my awesome parents and their love of reading. That is a feeling that is better than all the Bling in the World!

Wither by Lauren DeStefano

5 Bling Book!

Wither

I haven’t written a full review of Wither yet, mainly because I want to wait a few more days and read it again.

I was just so excited the first time I read it; I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. I flipped pages like a maniac and I’m not ashamed to admit it!

Now that I know the story, I need to read it again slowly (and try to calm down!)  to really get my head around all of the AMAZING things that I love about this book.

It is totally a 5 Bling Book!

Monday Prize Bling

I had crazy Monday & really needed a cool prize. Since there aren’t many things cooler than a new book, I stopped at the book store on the way home!

I also stopped by the library and grabbed a bag full of awesome books and audio books!

The only tough part will be deciding what to read first! What a beautiful dilemma for a Monday that started out a bit rocky!

Rock the Drop

Today I left a copy of Melissa de la Cruz’s Blue Bloods at the Atlanta airport in celebration of Teen Lit Day & Reader Girlz Rock the Drop!

I also left a book on the plane!

This is my new favorite day ever!
