Sharing Our Bookshelves {August 2011}

What good books have you been reading lately?

If you've posted anything about books recently on your blog, I hope you'll feel welcome to come link up your posts here, and "share your bookshelves" so that visitors can drop in. Please link up anything from book reviews to reading lists, and even things you're writing. I enjoy browsing through all your posts myself and I know a lot of other people do too.

To share my favorite moment of reading from this past month:

It was one of those old shops of which there are, still many examples surviving in London, in which the room was so small and the books so many that to move a step was to imperil your safety. Books ran in thick, tight rows from floor to ceiling everywhere, were piled in stacks upon the ground and hung in perilous heaps over chairs and window ledges.

  1. Since I am not blogging at the momment, I'll just tell you the book I just finished. :-D It's called The Candymakers By Wendy Mass. Here's the website: It's a real fun book -- would be great to read aloud to siblings!
