A book haul linky party for bargain loving bookworms!
Lesa is hosting this week!
Hi, friends! Remember the colorful Scholastic Book Fair truck from
Have you been waiting with bated breath to see what I bought?
Well, don't pass out! Breathe, book peeps, breathe!
You may not have noticed this but I frequently fall into serendipitous BBB adventures that demand immediate feature status. Oh, you did notice. Well, not to worry-- all bargain books will get a turn in the spotlight.
The Scholastic Book Fair always offers an interesting selection but this time I settled on only four bargain books...
May Bird and The Ever After by Jodi Lynn Anderson
May Bird Among The Stars by Jodi Lynn Anderson
(A girl who is different discovers a land of ghosts, ghouls and creepy things. Can she find a way out?)
The Anybodies by N.E. Bode
(Fern is happy to learn that she was swapped at birth and isn't really a boring Drudger. What happens when she spends the summer with her birth father? The synopsis promises suspense, intrigue, mystery, fairies and magic so I overlooked the ripped cover-- besides it was only fifty cents.)
Katie Loves the Kittens by John Himmelman
(Such a cute picture book and the illustrations are so funny. Look for this one in a future Storytime post.)
Have you read any of these?
If you have a bargain book, please share. We love to brag on bargains!
The next two aren't bargains but that is okay since buying books helps the school get free library books from Scholastic.
My little boy, Talon, always gets to buy his own book from the book fair. This time he chose an easy reader picture book, Hotwheels Volcano Blast. Considering how many times we've read it at bedtime, I'd say he is very pleased with his purchase.
In secret, I chose Spongebob Comic Crazy for Talon's Easter basket. It has eleven funny stories and is a big hit. (And it is so much better than our hand me down Lightning McQueen comic book that has stories to nowhere)
Don't forget to check out your local school's fall and spring Scholastic Book Fairs-- especially if you prefer giving books as gifts. And there are bookmarks, pens, erasers, posters, gadgets, games and adult books too...
