Wee-er Reader and I popped into the library before heading to pick up his big brother from preschool. Of course just about fifteen minutes after we get there, me carrying around one stack of kids’ books, he refusing to let go of two Thomas books he had already read (or been read to), I smell something and realize we have to go get his diaper changed. So I zoom us to the Holds shelves, grab my books, zoom us to the checkout machines and then off to the car. We make it to preschool pickup with plenty of time to spare. Phew.
I’m quite looking forward to March Book Two by John Lewis & Andrew Aydin (art by Nate Powell) as I really liked March Book One. Rani Manicka’s The Rice Mother is something I’ve been meaning to read for a while. It’s set in Ceylon and Malaysia. John O’Hara’s three novels – Appointment in Samarra, Butterfield 8, Hope of Heaven – are collected in one book. I’ve never read anything by him before so I’ve been curious.
I’ve been waiting for this hold for months!
