Spent last weekend at ALA and came home with more books that I have ever brought home from an event!

This first pic are the books that I am taking to school for a raffle to encourage reading.

Here are the rest of the books.  Duplicates will go to Jess or on the Giveaway pile.  Many more will also go on the Giveaway pile.  I have some scheduled for giveaway this week.

Hershey was supervising the picture taking.

Some for my Grandson

Some for my classes at school

Some cool things for me

I had a wonderful time at ALA.  It was much more relaxed and enjoyable than BEA has ever been.  And, of course, I loved seeing my good friend Krista from Krista's Dust Cover.

It was a great trip!  Best part was I got home on time with no issues!  Hooray.

I was rooming with Krista at ALA and one night we were both reading.  This is the book she was reading.  I witnessed her reactions as she finished this book.  It became clear that I needed to have it too.  And since it was ONLY 99¢, I one-clicked it right there!

(Just a random FYI---I read and LOVED Finding My Pack and am currently waiting VERY IMPATIENTLY for the next book to release, which is something I need to happen, like, NOOOOOW.)

That's what we added to our shelves this week! What do you think? What did you add to your stacks? Leave us a comment and link us up!


  1. You made out so well at ALA Oh my gosh so many pretties and your dog is adorable! I got Brave Enough and Midnight Revenge recently too and I'm really excited for both. So glad Crossing Stars got there safely. Happy reading!

  2. I've never been to a book conference. Now that I'm a language arts teacher, I think it's time!! Is this the best one, in your opinion?

    And what's a bookworm box?

    1. The Bookworm Box is a monthly subscription box where you get two signed books a month and some fun swag, and all profits go to charity! It was created and is run by Colleen Hoover and her family (plus volunteers), and there's a physical store, too. You can find more on their website:

    2. ALA conference are probably your best bet as a teacher. They are geared more to middle and YA books.

  3. So jealous. I want to go to ALA so bad! Maybe next year. Can't afford the one in Orlando this summer, even though it's the one I really, really want to go to. Is Hershey a dachshund? If so, how did I not know you had a dachshund? My favorite dogs in the world. :-) Have a great week!
    Check out my STS

    1. Hershey is a dachshund. He's my third one. I love them best.

  4. I am so jealous of your books that you got. There are so many it's crazy. Congrats on five years of being awesome!!!! You have a very cute doggy!

  5. Wow is that a lot of books! Jess got Chosen Fool- I am jealous!

  6. Awesome haul! That sure is a lot of books.
