Library Loot: Semptember 26-October 3rd

That’s right, guys! It’s time for me to once again hop in front of that video camera and embarrass myself just long enough to tell you about all the fantastic books I managed to grab on my last trip to the library – and this time, I grabbed a bunch of them! As for the really confusing dates (why is it just no being posted, in other words): I had this all recorded and ready to go and then I remembered that it was BANNED BOOKS WEEK! And I didn’t want to overload you guys with too many multiple posts in a day, and I thought that the books last week really needed the spot light. So I put off posting this little doozy of a video, which I now share with you all! For those of you in who don’t care to sit through the video, or have better things to do with your 18 minutes, I also provided a basic list of titles below the video. In personal news, there is no news: all quiet on the home front here. Happy reading!

**MAJOR FLUB: I called David Small’s graphic memoir Stitch on accident, instead of it’s true title Stitches and then proceeded to rave about it. But I swear – I love the book enough to remember it’s real title!
