My Wish List

We are having our book fair this week and I have been hanging out in the auditorium. I have to be there all day today and tomorrow so I spend a lot of time drooling over the books. I am always dismayed over how many great books I haven't read yet. I love chatting with kids, parents and teachers about what books they've read and what is on their wish lists.

I found out one of our new staff people is a self-described "bookaholic" She says she knows it's bad when the bookstore sends a Christmas card and they greet her by name. I said that's better than the casino sending you cards! We were standing at the grown-ups book table and she was pointing out all the great books she's already read. She said she is happy to lend them out so I got real friendly after that. She's been feeding books to the music teacher. I told her I would be her new best friend if I could get on that circulation list....

I added the Shelfari widget to my sidebar. It's showing my wish list, which I just updated today. I am a bit embarrassed to admit it, but all the books on my Shelfari list here are ones I haven't read yet. I know! You are saying "I can't believe she hasn't read Secret Life of Bees yet! I read that years ago!" Well I have it now. Girlfriend went home at lunch and brought it back for me and I am getting in my jammies tonight at 8:30 and cracking it open.

I also have my wish list on Goodreads, and a button farther down the side bar. I feel like a player, running both book sites, but it's fun so far. Friend me!

What's on your wish list?

Oh, my gosh, I got totally lost in GoodReads today, having the best time. Yikes, though, did I lose track of the hour!

Ooh, Jodi Picoult! Plain Truth is great.
