Thanks Shannon for this check-in!
I have issues. When walking past the library last Friday with my daughter I stopped to check the awesome Chicago Public Library app to see if I had anything in. She asked me if she could get a book too -I started to say “You don’t need a library book, you have enough at home…” Can you believe those words came out of my mouth? Followed by: “Sweet! I have holds in, let’s go inside.” And yes, she got 2 books too.
- The Radiant Road by Katherine Catmull
- We are All Completely Beside Ourselves (Thanks Chrissy!) by Karen Joy Fowler
- Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson
- The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton (5 year-old found this hilarious! See Miss Print’s review )
- Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast by Josh Funk – GET THIS IF YOU HAVE KIDS. We love it. I need to buy it.
