The Week in Review & A Look Ahead

The Week in Review:

     I'm a member of an awesome little book club called Once Upon A Time. As you can guess, we read fairy tales! Grimm brothers particularly at this point. On Thursday we had a meeting at The Chocolate in Orem (yumm!) and hashed out the club details. If you're local (Utah Valley) and you'd like to be a part of the Once Upon A Time book club, leave a comment on this post letting me know!

     This past Friday was the Provo City Library Used Book Sale. The ballroom was full of books at super cheap prices. I picked up several (listed below, along with other books I got this week) including a ton of DC comics for my husband.

     Saturday, Jan. 28th, the free tickets became available for the upcoming, Feb. 7th, Rebecca Stead lecture. The lecture is part of the Provo City Library's ProvoREADS! program and features Rebecca's Book When You Reach Me and Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time.

  1. This sounds like it'd be a blast. What a bummer I'm moving. =D

    1. I know! But the east coast is a pretty cool place (at least, i think that's where you mentioned you'd be going...).


So, what do you think, oh Lovely Reader?
