My Library Haul:
There is so much buzz about all 3 of these books! The Animal Book and The Real Boy are short-listed for all kinds of 2013 Best-of Awards so I'm really eager to read them. For both titles I had to put in a hold request for a library across the state. I love having the ability to borrow books from far away! Mysterious Benedict Society has been on my TBR list for years. It's a download from the Digital Public Library.
Other Book Loot:his blog so it's like torture waiting for a new one. For this one, Hugh posted each of the 5 sections separately with a week or two in between each. I decided to wait until the full book was released and to buy it as an omnibus. I downloaded the ebook the day it was released, and ordered a signed paperback for my shelves. I'm kind of a Hugh Howey fan...
