I have been frequenting the local library looking for some interesting reads lately because, despite my large library of my own books, I haven't found anything calling my name to be read. Then my good friend, Angie of Seven Clown Circus fame, decided to host a bloggy book exchange.
There are usually some good exchanges floating around the blogosphere, but I have never participated in any of them. And I, English literature geek that I am, was thrilled to participate in this one.
I looked through my own library and chose some of my favorite books to send to my new friend, Rebekkah from Life with Kaishon. Then I awaited the arrival of her books for me. Here's what I got in the mail:
I don't vlog very often because I think I look like a dork, but since my camera is floating with the fishes, I decided to let you have a peek at my living room. Excuse my stupid ending - I feel like such a dork taping myself.
For those who can't see the video, here are the titles I received: Over Her Dead Body (movie), Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, True Believer by Nicholas Sparks, Lyrics of Love & Loss: A Poetic Journey Through Infertility and Adoption by Stephanie H. Garcia, and Nobody Knows by Mary Jane Clark. I'm a Nicholas Sparks fan and know of Mary Jane Clark, but have never read anything by her, so I'm excited. I think this will open doors of literature for me (wow, I'm a geek, right).
I'm excited to read each of them (or watch in the case of the movie). Thank you so much Rebekkah. Angie, thanks for hosting this. I look forward to participating again.
