A Good Week in Books (53)

So I’ve been falling a little behind in my reading/blogging. There have been holidays, mad cleaning sprees, traveling adventures, and trip-planning. And top it all off with BEA. So, I’m kind of posting my normal Sunday morning post on a Tuesday evening…But I wanted these books to be mentioned this week. Because next week, I will be talking about all the books I get at BEA! I am so excited for my trip!
By the way, I am seriously in love with my new library job. And my job not only got me a free VIP badge to the conference, but it in a way makes me feel justified for being so in love with YA (and children’s ) literature, not that any justification is really necessary. I guess I just know that I picked the right career path.
Any way, during some of my recent adventures, I came across a Harry Potter store….So, the first picture is of the first book I ordered online, and some fun Harry Potter merchandise. And then when I was in Boston yesterday, I found some seriously awesome bookstores, and I bought two new books (used)!

In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters
How was your week in books? Maybe I’ll see you at BEA this week!
