Teetering Piles of Guilty Pleasure #1

I’ve been buying books again. With all good intentions. Do you think I can have all these books be the very next one I read?

I suppose it could be worse. It’s not crack, heroin or meth, right? I may have to post these in a series, as everything online is either not working or working slowly. And Mercury’s not even in retrograde!

Bought Books--various

From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler
by E L Konigsburg (I got this for 8yo Drake, hopeful he’s old enough and up for it)
The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson (The last recommendation for me from The Biblioracle at The Morning News)
Make the Bread, Buy the Butter by Jennifer Reese, who blogs at Tipsy Baker
The Finder Library v. 2 by Carla Speed McNeil. (One of my favorite comic series, collected in a lovely new edition. Why, no, I still haven’t finished v. 1. Your point?)
Sweet Tooth: Out of the Deep Woods v. 1 by Jeff Lemire (An answer to my question of “what’s good that I’m not reading” from 2nd in command C at Big Brain Comics)

More to come…

    I reread the Konigsburg earlier this year, having not read it since my childhood. I really enjoyed it. But it’s a little sad to think it couldn’t happen that way now.

    FYI, I picked up Blood, Bones and Butter on a clearance table, so if you want to borrow it, I do have it.

    Oh my lord! That’s a shock. A good one.

    I know we talked about The Family Fang on GoodReads, but I suspect you’re going to get to read it before I do (my suspicions being largely founded on the basis of you having the book and me not!). I hope it’s good… I didn’t get my act together this year and was blasé about the Southern Festival of Books, assuming no one of interest was attending. Several hours after many cool authors spoke, I realized that Kevin Wilson had had a little session and rued not being more thorough in my investigation of visiting authors. Sigh.

    Jennifer, your book was not only in store on the release date of Tuesday 10/18, but near the front registers at B & N on a new release table, facing out! And even though I’ve read your blog for years now, the book is nicely different. I bought yeast in bulk yesterday rather than packets on your advice, and am thinking that making butter would be a fun rainy day science project with the kids, no matter what your title says!
