books

This is the greatest of things.

While browsing through the library sheves, way down on the bottom I spotted The Secret Diary of Ashley Juergens. Wait. I know that name. Let me see this...

WHY YES! It's a TV tie-in novel for Secret Life of the American Teenager, as told in diary format by the star's sulky little sister. Did I say sulky? I meant awesome. Not only is Ashley the best, but after 10 pages I feel confident in saying that the quality of the writing in this book far outstrips the show.

On a similar note, forget the new TV season. I just want it to be the weekend of October 8-9, when it will be time to hit the fairgrounds for the mega-huge Half Price Books Clearance Sale! If I can time it right and go Saturday morning, it will even overlap with the last hours of a YMCA fundraiser garage sale, for double fun.

(BONUS: mere days after that is my local Friends of the Library book sale. *does a happy dance*)

So, after I spent several hours yesterday googling other people's library sale finds, I decided to check up on some of the favorites in my library system. Collapse )
