An excellent haul! I finally got book 30 of the Magic Tree House, but I got so many other great books too. I'm really excited to read Thirteen Orphans by Jane Lindskold. I'm so glad one of my Goodgreads groups chose it; it was on my to-read list for a while and that brought it right to the top.
In addition to the books I'd reserved, I finally was able to consult my favorite librarian about suggestions for my little guy to follow-up on his Magic Tree House obsession. Turns out the childrens' room is dangerous for me, I picked up a ton of books for the kids to try and for myself! It was a good thing I'd taken my large library bag. There were several more books in the pile that aren't represented above because I left them with the kids to try.
It was a manga/graphic novel week, with Buffy Season 8, volume 5 arriving, in addtion to to a few of the Fullmetal Alchemist books recommended by several friends. In addition, I got the first book of the manga version of the Warriors books. I've been wanting to try the series for a long time and it will be interesting to compare the two versions.
All that, plus a book of short stories including a new one from Angela Knight! Add in the new books already on my nook, and I'm facing major "what to read next" stress, my favorite problem to have.
