Yeah, I like frogs. If you wind that one up, it waddles across the book 🙂
Anyway. The Adoration of Jenna Fox and Shatter Me were sent to me by Ruby of Ruby’s Reads. Not only did she host the Spring Book Exchange, she also ended up being my Santa! Makes me feel all warm and special inside 🙂 I’ve been desperate to read Shatter Me for what feels like forever, so I was more than a little excited when I opened the package. I did actually read The Adoration of Jenna Fox last year, but I never got round to buying a paper copy. Now I own it and I can see it on my shelf and smile lovingly.
Ill Wind is another of those that I’ve wanted to read for a while. I did borrow it from the library a few months ago, but it ended up being due back before I could get to it – isn’t that always the way? I saw a copy for £1.25 on the used book stall in the market though, so I scraped together every 5p I had in the bottom of my bag and took it home 🙂
These two were the product of my trip to Sheffield Library yesterday. I had no reservations due in (don’t you hate being sixth on the hold list?), so I actually had to, God forbid, browse.
After an unsuccessful wander round, I ended up in the Biography section. I don’t usually venture in, but to be honest, there were sofas in there and I was tired. I might have to visit more often though – I ended up with Jane’s Fame, a biography of Jane Austen and her works’ impact on society and Signs of Life by Natalie Taylor. I’d never heard of it before, but it seems to be a woman’s struggle to cope with the death of her husband and her newborn son. It sounds miserable, but it’s supposed to be quite funny.
