    I hope you enjoy Geektastic!

    I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on Audrey, Wait. I’ve seen some reviews on it already and waffle on whether I’d like it. It seems a bit darker.

    Awful to admit, but I’ve not had much time to browse the public library the last few months 😦 Feeling the withdrawal symptoms though lol!

    Distracted looks really interesting, I read an article about how this generation of learners is needing to build a different sort of inner focus ability because of how fast and busy the world around them is. But that they are much more able to multi-task than generations before them. Just the kind of geeky reading I love πŸ™‚

    That looks like a lot of wonderful books there. I am hoping to get around to reading Charles De Lint after Christmas. I like the look of the Jane Yolen one.

  4. bermudaonion says:

    Those all look good, but I think I NEED to read The Onion Girl! Pip: The Story of Olive looks good to me too!

    somanybookssolittletime. sigh. I just reserved a few books but didn’t get any this week. I’m thinking about checking out some cookbooks, tho. I’m in the mood to peruse a few recipes for fun…

    I am coveting your loot. What a great list of things to read! Especially curious to see what you think of Flight Vol. 5 — I have read Vol. 2 and loved many of the stories in it.

  7. Sherrie says:

    They all look like great books! Love the covers on all of them. Have a great day!!

    Michelle: Thanks!

    Joanne: You’re right, Distracted seems to be the right kind of geeky reading.I can’t wait to read it.

    Vivienne: This would be my first de Lint read. I’ve read so many good things about The Onion Girl, I decided to give it a try.

    Bermudaonion: LOL! I love the cover of Pip: The Story of Olive so I picked it up.We’ll see how good it is.

    Care: You know what? Last night I was thinking about checking out some cookbooks too. I probably will since Thanksgiving is just around the corner.Let me know what you check out.

    Kiirstin: I love the Flight series. I’ll write a review of it when I finish reading it. Have you read volume 1? I really enjoyed that one.

    Sherrie: Thanks! Have a great day!

  9. Andi says:

    20 Years at Hull House! I’ve had that on my stacks for AGES, and it still sounds interesting, so I should jump on it. Enjoy your loot!

  10. olduvai says:

    Wow that looks like an awesome haul. Geektastic and The Onion Girl are already on my TBR list, and now I have to go add Twenty Years at Hull House and Flight! Happy reading!

  11. Eva says:

    I read Twenty Years at Hull House in high school and loved it! πŸ™‚ And I’m on my library’s list for The Wild Things. I flipped through some of the Flight volumes at B&N earlier this year and was really intrigued-maybe I’ll put on hold at my libary!

    I passed along the One Lovely Blog Award to you!! You can get it here!

    Man, oh, man, I can’t wait to see what you think of Wild Things. I’m on my library;s list but it’s a LONG list…:O/

  14. fleurfisher says:

    What a wonderful array of covers and littles. I’m most curious about The Onion Girl. Enjoy!

  15. Kailana says:

    Lots of great looking books there! Enjoy. πŸ™‚

  16. historyofshe says:

    I am interested to see what you think about The Onion Girl. It was my first de Lint and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. πŸ™‚

  17. Nymeth says:

    I loved Geektastic! (Well, except one story πŸ˜› ) I also share She’s reservations about The Onion Girl…I guess it just wasn’t the best starting place. Happy reading!

  18. Marg says:

    I have only read one Jane Yolen book but I liked it a lot! Must look into getting more! I have read a few Charles de Lint books. I don’t find them easy reads but I do enjoy them!

    Hope you enjoy your loot!
