First of all, I would like to say that . . . I GOT YOU! Really good, too. :-) I even fooled my mom. Anyway, for those of you who almost had a heart attack, I apologize for being so ornery. ;)
Oh, and I have to tell you something really embarrassing. After I wrote my April fool's post, I saw a similar one on a popular blog. And I fell for it. I totally fell for it. Tell me, how can I play a trick on my blog followers and then fall for the same trick three minutes later? Ha. It's a talent, for sure.
Mom and I spent most of yesterday in Memphis, trying to build up my pathetic summer wardrobe. We also had to go shopping for a swimsuit. Ugh! I hate hate hate shopping for swimsuits. :p All in all, however, we had a fun time. We got to spend some time together, have some conversations, eat sub sandwiches, go to the library, find nice clothes, and buy books. Buying books makes any day fantastic. =)
And now for my usual book stack post. Isn't it a lovely stack? I've got . . .
Once - Morris Gleitzman
Dear Enemy - Jean Webster
Life Among the Savages - Shirley Jackson
My Friend Flicka - Mary O'Hara
Pictures of Hollis Woods - Patricia Reilly Giff
The Penderwicks at Point Mouette - Jeanne Birdsall
Dragons in the Water - Madeleine L'Engle
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows - J.K. Rowling
Gerald Durrell is my favorite lately. He wrote My Family and Other Animals, which is one of the most wonderfully hilarious books I have ever encountered. I love it. =)
And ooh! I was very excited to find Dear Enemy, the sequel to Daddy-Long-Legs. It looks quite promising. Life Among the Savages also looks very good. Haha! Last night I actually sat on my floor and read the first page of all nine books. Dear Enemy and Life Among the Savages both had excellent opening lines.
Signing off now! I think I shall go read. =)
P.S. Some exciting things are coming up! But I won't say what they are, because that would be telling. Farewell! (But don't fear, it's not forever. Quite temporarily, in fact.)
