I can't believe it's almost 3 o'clock! I can't believe Spring Break is over! I can't believe I have so many great books to write about and so little time! That said... a few things...
One) My free-shipping-in-the-Continental-U.S-for-anyone-who-buys-over-$20-in-books-in-my-Etsy store sale runs through tonight at 11:59 PM. Be sure and check it out. Just make a purchase of at least $20 worth of merchandise from my Etsy shop, and mention you are a reader in the notes and I promise to refund the shipping costs.
Two) All you Jack Kent fans who live in San Antonio or close by, this Friday night, our local independent bookstore, The Twig, is hosting a Jack Kent event in celebration of the release of King Aroo Volume One. San Antonio poet and children’s author Naomi Shihab Nye will share her memories of Kent, her neighbor and friend. Kent’s son Jack Jr. will trace the development of this artist’s work and his intimate
connections with the city he loved. Where: The Twig Bookstore at Pearl Brewery. When: Friday, March 26, 5-7 pm. Be there.
Three) Today's Great Monday Give is a copy of the Maurice Sendak illustrated Little Bear by Else Holmelund Minarik. Gotta love the Little Bear. To be entered to win this newish and super-clean hardcover from my son's collection, simply comment on this post before 11:59 pm on Sunday night, March 28th. A winner will be selected at random and announced the following day.
Four) And speaking of winners... last week's give of Kit William's The Bee on the Comb is Christine! Simply e-mail me your info to webe(at)soon(dot)com and I'll get it out to you ASAP.
I really will try and get a review in this afternoon. It's feels like forever!
