Here's what she chose:
The Cats ABC book was a given, since she LOVES cats. The others were kind of random, but interesting choices. Once she realized how fun it was to pull books off the shelf and put them in the bag, she went a little crazy, so I had to put a lot of books back.
Here are my children's literature choices:
I cleaned the library out of Melanie Watt's books because I haven't read any of her books, and I chose the Raucous Royals because it just looked fun.
Finally, here were my adult book picks.
White Tiger and A Fraction of the Whole are shortlisted for the 2008 Man Booker Prize. I'm a bit of a "Book Awards Groupie" because I often get overwhelmed with making book choices. I figure that if they're nominated for an award, SOMEBODY liked them. I chose Netherland because I've read lots of reviews and wanted to see what all of the hype was about. Finally, I chose The Handmaid's Tale because my friend Cindy told me I should read it, especially given the fact that I haven't read any Atwood books.
I also saw that next weekend my library is having a used book sale. $5 for a bag of books. I'm so there.
