Sundays In Bed With…….. April 5th Edition

SundaysInBedWithSmall

 

Welcome to my Sundays In Bed With… Meme! The meme that dares to ask, what book has been in your bed this morning?  Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today!

My totally awesome friend, Kate from Midnight Book Girl created this meme March 2012. I have participated in this on and off but I am committing myself to start doing this on a weekly bases again. I found this a good way to share what I am actually reading and maybe this will help me get back in to my groove again.

Even though its Easter morning I am hoping that if I am up early enough I can dig into this book:

This book has been on my wishlist since it first came out. I have been tempted to buy it several times when I am at Chapters but I always put it back. I finally spotted it at the library so I picked it up.

Have you ever read this? What did you think of it?

Library Loot April 3rd Edition

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.

I figured since the weather was starting to get nicer I would start walking to our local library and get back into borrowing books and perhaps get away from buying so many books.

This week was a small haul as I didn’t bring a tote bag with me so I didn’t go over board since I would be carrying everything home with me.

For Michael I borrowed two DS video games and they both were Zelda ones that he wanted to try out to see if he liked them.

I borrowed two dvds that we plan on watching next Monday and Tuesday since they are ped days and they were Mary Poppins (its one of my favorite movies and I can watch it over and over again. This was also my first broadway play I saw in NYC) and The Wizard of Oz (Michael’s grade 6 class put this play on at their school and he wanted to see the original movie)

The books I borrowed this week are:

  • Living Me to We (The Guide for Socially Conscious Canadians) by Craig & Marc Kielburger
  • The World Needs Your Kid (How to raise children who care and contribute) by Craig & Marc Kielburger and Shelley Page
  • Free the Children by Craig Kielburger with Kevin Major
  • Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

I probably won’t be going to the library weekly to borrow books as I am going to make every effort to read what I borrow first and bring back and then borrow new ones. Its easy to get sucked in because we have two adult cards and a childs card that each hold a limit of 50 books/card.

Do you borrow from the library? What is your card limit? Do you get all the newest books?
