Remember how I posted a few weeks ago about the annual Penguin Putnam warehouse sale in upstate NY? Well, I went last week on Monday and wanted to share my haul with you. I will be doing IMM separately because I don’t want the books from this haul to overshadow the books I got in IMM, because there’s a lot and so the IMM books will get lost in the shuffle if I don’t post separately.
Hope Was Here by Joan Bauer – Basically this is about a NYC girl who moves to Wisconsin to help run a dinner with her aunt, and well, sign me up because I love books about dinners.
Stand Tall by Joan Bauer – This is about a boy named Tree who has to help his grandfather, a Vietnam War veteran learn to walk again. I love the sound of this one.
The Difference Between You And Me by Madeline George – I borrowed this from the library once and returned it overdue and unread. I kind of bought so that I NEVER have to worry about returning it overdue again, ha ha.
Dogsbody by Diana Wynne Jones – I don’t even know what this is about, but it meets three things I am interested in: 1)Neil Gaiman intro, 2)Written by DWJ, 3) Dogs. THE END.
