It's always exciting when the boxes start arriving from the publishers---kind of like Christmas only I don't have to buy anything for anyone else! ;)
So, I've started reading the selections that are possibilities for next year's Lone Star picks--and I have to say that so far I'm fairly impressed. I've read a bit of historical fiction and some fantasy so far.
I'm also beginning to work on my booktalks for TLA this year. It's just around the corner, and I definitely want to be super-prepared--especially since I'll be ridiculously preggo by that time and I don't want to be stressed at the last minute trying to finish things up. I'm really excited about both the books I'll be talking --they are FABULOUSNESS.
I've been home for two days with a kiddo running fever, so I feel a bit out of the school loop right now, but hey, it's made for more reading time, right?
