Library Thursday Blog Hop: 1/27/11

Library Thursday is a weekly blog hop Lazy Girl Reads started to:

1. Encourage people to support their libraries when they can
2. Meet new bloggy friends and grow your following

How to participate (UPDATED):
  • Create a Library Thursday post with a list, pictures or a vlog of your books. Or feature a cool picture of a library, or spotlight one of your favorite libraries.
  • Grab my button if you like it and include it in your post! Make sure to shout the library out that you went to!
  • Once you've created your post, link it to the linky at the bottom of Lazy Girl Reads' weekly post
  • Hop around to the other blogs participating and check out what other people are reading. Be sure to leave them a comment to let them know you were there, this is about making friends as well!
We live in a very rural area so we make sure we go to the library every Tuesday before my daughter's dance class.  This week I did not get any books for myself as I am a little overwhelmed with what I already have.  But, I got a bunch for my kiddos.  They include:

For my 7-year-old son
Explode the Code v. 8 (for my son's homeschooling curriculum)
Goosebumps:  Welcome to Dead House by R.L. Stine
Rotten School:  Dumb Clucks by R.L. Stine
Geronimo Stilton:  Shipwreck on the Pirate Islands
Geronimo Stilton:  Surf's Up, Geronimo!
Capital Mysteries:  The Secret at Jefferson's Mansion by Ron Roy

For my 5-year-old daughter
Explode the Code v. 2 1/2 (for my daughter's homeschooling curriculum)
Rainbow Magic:  Flora the Dress-Up Fairy by Daisy Meadows
The Fairy Chronicles:  Marigold and the Feather of Hope, The Journey Begins by J.H. Sweet
Young Cam Jansen and the Missing Cookie by David A. Adler
Young Cam Jansen and the Substitute Mystery by David A. Adler

For my 3-year-old son

Happy Birthday, Biscuit!  by Alyssa Satin Capucilli
Tall by Jez Alborough
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe by Jane Cabrera
Bums by David Bedford and Leonie Worthington
Bath Time by David Bedford and Leonie Worthington

Plus, I put some books on hold for my 3-year-old's preschool curriculum.  What did you pick up this week?


  1. I love that you post books that you picked up for your kids! I have 3 year-old and a 14 month-old and we get books for them every week. I think I will start adding those as well! Right now, my older son is loving books by Eric Carle and Lois Ehlert. I'm a new follower as well.
    Truly Bookish

  2. I have 2 books on reservation that I need to pick up.

    There are library cuts coming to our area. My local is not on the closure list but the council do want outside parties to run the library. :(

    The future for our library is uncertain.


  3. Ahh! I love the books your kids got! It's so awesome that you post them :)

  4. I love how you post what you got for your kids. I should start doing that too.

    My son is 9 and he loves Goosebumps. Has your son read Diary of the Wimpy Kid or Captain Underpants? My son loves those and so does a lot of his friends.

  5. Well maybe not yet. I thought you said he was 8, not sure if they are for 7 year olds.

  6. Nice list of books for the kids!

  7. I love that you do this with your kids. We used to do this when my kids were little too.
    I know that you are one of my followers so I just popped in to check you out. I love your site and have added myself to your followers and grabbed your badge. I also added you to my blog roll so I can keep up with you.
