On the Launching Pad

Tea Cozy has a post up with pictures of her groaning bookshelves. I can absolutely relate... mine are double-stacked and I was just thinking I need to set some of them free....

But when I heard there might be a snow storm Sunday night into the morning rush hour on Monday (read "Snow day possible!!") I had to grab a bunch of books from the library. Not that I actually have any chance of getting in extra reading time with my two little guys wanting attention, but.... it's just a few chapter books everyone is talking about that I haven't gotten to yet...

Then of course the other thing is I need to write 250 report cards and the boy's daycare has chicken pox going around so we might be looking at some very itchy sick days coming up... and suddenly I feel the need for a new stack of books. So here is what I have on my headboard bookshelf:

See anything you are interested in? Where should I start?

What an amazing list of books! The one that caught my eye is "French Quarter Fiction: The Newest Stories of America's Oldest Bohemia" - that has got to be good!

Totally drooling over here. Take a few in your hands, one at a time, and open them randomly. Something will surely speak to you!

Book heaven! Thanks for the BookCrossing link - I'll add it to my blogroll. I have I-don't-know-how-many boxes of books packed up with no room on the bookshelves. And no more walls to add bookshelves to. This is after donating many bags & boxes to the library. I should just buy a bigger house for my book habit.

Read A Drowned Maiden's Hair! I loved it! My nine-year old daughter and I fought over it every night until I finished it when she was at school.
