  1. I just heard about the book My Life with Bob. I’m totally interested in that one and of course, our Bridges doesn’t have it. I follow Dana White’s blog, so I’ve been interested in checking out here book too. Bridges doesn’t have that one either for me. Work Clean and Small Move also piqued my interest. I’ll be anxious to hear your thoughts! Thanks for the link-up!

  2. I just checked My Life with Bob out from the library, too. Books about books are the best!

  3. I need to read The Many Worlds of Albie Bright too…going to my library website now. 🙂

  4. None of these really sparked my interest this month, but I have read and enjoyed the Princess and the Goblin, although it’s been many years past.
