Showcase Sunday (#1) – ALA, Birthday, & Review Books Edition

Posted July 8, 2012 by Jana in Uncategorized / 12 Comments

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits, and Tea. We get to showcase our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received, borrowed, bought, and downloaded!

Hello! June was a HUGE book month for me, and I had absolutely no time to film a vlog until now! So, this SS encompasses all the books I received or bought at ALA, books I got from my friends and family for my birthday, and other books I was sent for review over the last month-month and a half. It’s kind of a lot… And I’m sorry, but I tried to film a vlog 3-4 times and decided today is just not my day! So, here is a picture. Below, I categorized what came from where. :)

  1. *Faints*

    I knew you had a good time at ALA, but… Erm… Wow.

    I assume there is now going to be a book buying ban on the cards. ;)

    Hope you enjoy them all.

  2. I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU. You have some really great books in that stack and it’ll be a blast trying to read them all! We can totally do a read-along since we have some of the same review books ;)

  3. So many amazing books!! :D I am SO excited to hear what you think of all of them! Also, you need to read Throne of Glass soon so we can gush about it together, I think I’ll be able to finish it today :)

  4. That is quite the stash!! And I thought my going out of business sale at a used bookstore loot was good! I can’t wait for the next ALA conference! I’m going to make out like a bandit!
