You know how when you go to ALA Midwinter the venders in the exhibition hall have all those gift baskets of books and goodies that they are giving away? And you put your business card in the bowl or fill out the address form hoping you will win? Well last week I prepared myself by printing up a bunch of business cards (I don't usually have any handy) and I dropped them in all the raffle bowls at every publisher's table in the exhibition.
I never got an email or a call so I thought I hadn't won. Surprise!! Today I got a box of books from Farrar, Straus, & Giroux full of books by Ruth White. YAY! These are the titles:
Belle Prater's Boy (1997 Newbery Honor book)
The Search for Bell Prater
Way down Deep
Sweet Creek Holler
Memories of Summer
I had picked up a free ARC of The House of Djinn by Suzanne Fisher Staples at their display too, so now my To Be Read shelf is overflowing. I am a happy camper!
