A book haul linky party for bargain loving bookworms!
Want to join the party? Just visit the Bargain Book Bonanza page for the particulars.
Hey, all y'all. Me again. The one with the passel of....kids (thank you, Scarlett). I totally cheated on this one, but I am still proud, because it took a bit of doing!
So it's summer summer summertime, and Houston ISD and the Houston Public Library, among others, sponsor summer reading programs. Well, I have attempted it the last few years, but we never logged our books in...blah blah blah.
So. How does this relate to a Bargain Book Bo-nanza (you have to say it that way: BO-nanza)? (Hey, calm down! I am getting there! Sheesh, you are soooo pushy!)
That's right, folks! My kids got FREE BOOKS!
We finished the first "prize" level and each one got a book. They are also going to receive a free book next week for completing level two (PLUS tickets to an Astros game and the circus!)! AND - yes - AND my two boys in school will receive a THIRD book during their next school year! I seem to be yelling a lot. Let me calm down.
Lucas, 10, got Slam:
Nico, 6, got Pippi Goes On Board:
And, Miss Muffet, 2, got an I Spy Little Book:
Yes, I cheated a bit, as I didn't actually find them, but I did push my kids to read read read. They think they are finished, since they got the prize. They're so crazy. It's only just begun. MWAHAHAHA!
That was an evil laugh, just FYI.
Have you read something that you normally wouldn't choose? Were you pleasantly surprised or bitterly, and I mean, bitterly, disappointed?
