ALA: The Books

The sewing machine is mine, not a prize (-:) About half of these are books I purchased and about half are galleys.
Usually I make a list of all the galleys I've brought back, but this year since I had the wonder of technology (i.e. borrowed netbook) and didn't pick up as many galleys b/c I was attending sessions (that's not a criticism or anything. I am neutral in the Great ARC Debate. I really don't care, although I have nothing against those who do) ANYWAYS. These are the books I saw/looked at/got galleys for and thought were interesting and possible purchases and was able to dump right into my ordering carts for later perusal. Not a complete list, just a sampling, no guarantee titles are full and correct, etc. It's just scribbled notes. I got some galleys that aren't on here too but like I said - just notes!
  • Tinker Bell and the Lucky Rainbow
    • I saw this at Papercutz and thought I'd missed one, but turns out I'd ordered it in January. Anyways, these are very popular with a lot of girls.
  • Book King by Tim Lahaye?
    • I swear I saw this at Tyndale publishers and it was some new fantasy series. Not to my taste, but I just had a parent ask for "Christian fantasy like Rick Riordan" so I wanted to look more closely at it. However, I must have taken the title down wrong and I've already deleted the picture and I can't find it anywhere! Will try to visit Tyndale House again.
  • How to talk to an Autistic Kid
    • Free Spirit does a nice, varied collection of what I think of as "issues" books that we put in our parenting collection. We have quite a few kids with autism and other disabilities who use the library, something I've really been encouraging b/c we have the county's special education school. Anyways this looked quite practical and it was nice that it was from a kid's perspective.
  • National Geographic First Big book of why, Wild Animal atlas
    • A couple I'd missed.
  • Vordak Time Travel
    • Coming in August!
