The answer

So I brought 3 books.  8th Grade Superzero -which I was almost done with anyway.  Let the Great World Spin, which I’ve been fighting to get into ever since I finished This Side of Brightness also by Colum McCann.  And then just in case I needed more YA, I also threw in If I Stay.  Luckily the bnb had so many great magazines, I never even came close to running out of reading material.

On our way out of town, we stopped at the great local bookstore Rock City.  There I picked up a copy of The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep and Never Had To.  Got to support local independent bookstores after all.

Also at the bookstore I stumbled upon some postcard sized prints by a really neat artist.  Jane Mount does portraits of people’s favorite books.  She calls it Ideal Bookshelves.   You can even order a custom print of a special someone’s favorite books!  I think I’ll be dropping hints quite frequently between now and July 7th!
