What I like is that they are not books I would usually buy, but I think they nearly all look interesting. Some look like great reference books to have around the house, some look like they'd be great to have in my classroom, and there is something for everyone in my family.

thanks to Trish and to Hachette books. I can't wait until they get here!


  1. Yay! Congrats on winning a box of books! That will definitely be a fun day when they arrive. :)

  2. Congrats!! I won a box from Dewey & Hachette a few months ago and it was great.

    The Dewey book looks so interesting. The library was in Iowa, too!

  3. Congratulations! I, too, won one of the boxes a few months ago.

    And I love the quote...I'm using a different Dr. Seuss quote later in the week.

  4. Holy Cow! is right. That's quite a list of books. Congratulations Raidergirl3. ~~Tickled pink~~ for you.

  5. trish - thank you

    3m - have you been at that library? The Dewey book looks so cool because of, well, dewey!
    ps - can you zip me your current addy?

    softdrink (can I call you pepsi?) - thanks, Seuss works for most days, doesn't he?

    booklogged - thanks Cheya.
    Oh, I saw Anne and Gilbert: the Musical yesterday in Summerside. Absolutely wonderful, it covers the 2nd two books in the series. I was sobbing by the end, and my 8 year old daughter said: 'I don't cry from songs.' I plan to write a little post about it soon.
