I can’t believe this is my 200th post! Woo-hoo! This is definitely a celebratory moment!
I had been posting everyday since Christmas and I was feeling kind of burnt out from blogging but this is such a great way to share my passion for books, my commitment to literacy, and to connect with like-minded people!
Today was a great example of why I being a bookseller. Got lots done. Nice people. So many opportunities to share my book love!
I may have mentioned that my boss at work chose Mercy Corp as the recipient for our Gift Wrapping for a Cause Program during the holiday season. We wrapped a total of 131 packages and she rounded it up to a $150 donation to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. I invite you to like the Green Bean Books Facebook page to see what we’re up to and the occasional book reviews.
Speaking of work book reviews, you can read our thoughts on some art and art-related books over at NW Kids Magazine, online edition, page 36. Seeing my name in print is quite nice, if I may say so myself!
This week, I posted:
-The Secret Circus by Johanna Wright [**]
-Bandits by Johanna Wright [*]
I decided to read these two picture books after visiting the Drawing on Imagination exhibit featuring 11 local illustrators and author/illustrators. The Secret Circus has such a sweet element to it that’s perfect for bedtime.
*= It was OK
**= Liked it
****= Highly Recommended
I’m hoping to finish Christopher Pike’s Remember Me 3: The Last Story this week. I started Sonia Sotomayor’s My Beloved World for my Everybody Reads reading challenge. I’m also reading Tony Abbott’s first book in a new series that comes out January 7th.
Have a great reading week!
