National Children’s Book Week is NOW! We’re having such a great time … avid readers from all over the place have been coming in to check out our book selection and give us the scoop on what they’ve been reading lately. It’s so much fun to hear all about everyone’s favorite new and classic books … so get in here and tell us what you’ve been reading. We want to hear all about it.
What have we been reading? Well, I’ve finally gotten the chance to read The Penderwicks, and I absolutely loved it — shades of Little Women, with lots of references to great classic children’s literature (including Edward Eager’s Magic by the Lake! Huzzah!). I purchased a shiny new first-edition hardcover of the just-released sequel, The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, this afternoon … guess what I’ll be doing tonight? (We’ve got more copies left in stock, don’t worry.) Hopefully Erin S. and Susan will chime in on the blog tomorrow to let you know what they’ve been enjoying this week!
Don’t forget, you have FIVE MORE DAYS to enter to win a $100 Pufferbellies gift certificate. Just purchase any book between now and the end of Book Week (Sunday, May 18th), and you may enter to win. The more books you purchase, the more chances you’ll get to win.
