What a great weekend! On Friday, the incomparable Alison Morris (the children's book buyer at Wellesley Booksmith in Massachusetts) gave me a shout out on her Publisher's Weekly blog, Shelftalker. On Saturday, I threw a fabulous Halloween party for my son and his friends. And yesterday, I found a hummingbird nest. Doesn't get much better than that! Or does it?
Last week, I scored this in a junk shop for $1.99... and it was such a great deal that I couldn't pass it up... except we have all the books in here already... so there is only one thing to do with it, and that's give it away! This week's Great Monday Give is a practically perfect hard copy of A Hatful of Seuss, a collection of the great Doctor's work including the classics If I Ran the Zoo, Sneetches and Other Stories, Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book, Horton Hears a Who! and Bartholomew and the Oobleck. A wonderful collection... Bartholomew and the Oobleck is one of my all time favorite Seuss books... and it can be yours (maybe) if you comment on this post between now and midnight Sunday, November 8. A winner will be selected at random and announced the following morning.
In case you were wondering who the winner of last week's give is... that delightful wee copy of Golden Guide: Birds? Skye from right down the road in Austin. Congrats sister and send me your info as soon as you can to webe(at)soon(dot)com.
Stay turned for a review later in the morning and all you Dr. Goat fans... know that I have a very very very special treat coming up later this week. That's it for now kids!
