First, a shout-out to Teresa at Readers Live A Thousand Lives for allowing me to borrow a bit from her Weekly Recap format. Thank you so much, Wifey! I go on an internet hiatus on the weekends, so I' m unable to participate in linking up to the wonderful memes that are out there. This way, I can share with you guys but still remain technology-free until Monday! Teresa's Weekly Recap vlogs are fabulous. Her excitement over her books is so contagious, so be sure to check them out!
This is our favorite time of year! We are loving the cool, rainy weather and seeing the leaves change color. Here’s a shot of Katertot’s pumpkin:
You can get this cute kit at Lowe's:
So much easier than carving!
Instead of newer releases, this weekend we're diving into some reads that were published in 2007 and 2010. October just begs for zombies and vampires, so we can't wait to read about the creatures that live between these pages:
This past week on the blog:
This is the last day to enter for a copy of Her Special Day Shoes by Michael A. Walker. He has dedicated this book to his friend Kristin, and all proceeds go to her and the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Click on the cover to learn more about what Michael is doing for his friend and to find purchase links where you can buy your own copy of his book to support a great cause.
There's still plenty of time to enter for a $25 Amazon card on my stop of the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop hosted by I'm A Reader, Not A Writer.
New to the Belles’ Library:
And a big thank-you to 'Mr. Belle's Tales' for adding these to our classics collection:
I was a huge fan of the Little House books when I was a kid, and this particular edition is one of the Barnes&Noble Leatherbound Classics Series. It contains the first five novels and can be purchased HERE.
The Novels of Charles Dickens was an internet find. It contains Great Expectations and A Tale of Two Cities. He got it for $7. Seriously. It's so pretty!
We want to leave you with this poem that Katertot had to memorize for school last week. She loved it so much, she wanted to share it with you all:
|Poem taken from 9th grade Vocabulary, Spelling, Poetry III (fifth edition). |
A Vagabond Song by Bliss Carman.
Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful season!
We'd love to know what amazing book you're curling up with this weekend!
See you Monday!
