A Good Week in Books (151)

I had a very nice book week, if I say so myself. For starters my mini Amazon splurge finally came! A package that was supposed to come in 2 days, took almost 2 weeks. I had to complain and request a new order be sent (for free) and Amazon then asked me to return the first order when it came in…That first order just mysteriously disappeared, though I was able to track it to my local post office. I never got it. Book shipment mystery aside, I also had a wonderful opportunity to meet the author of one of my favorite books of the year, this week. My library has been doing a lot of programming this month centered on our “One Book One Town,” which is Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk. And Lauren came to speak at my library!
I of course picked up a book for her to sign. She was a wonderful speaker and I remember feeling so uplifted from her talk that had a lot to do with standing up to bullies. Also, I have to note that Wolf Hollow, as of today, is a 2017 Newbery Honor! Yay, Lauren Wolk!
