A bookself, a superhero and a teddy bear reading group

I volunteer at the libraries on Fridays now. My mom
wanted me to take some pictures for the new brochures they were making. There wasn't any children in the children's section so I used the stuffed animals in there instead. It was fun. The brown one is reading Winnie the Pooh.

We had a bigger bookcase that we weren't using so I dragged it into my bedroom last night.
Now I got the Louisa May Alcott collection I got for Christmas on my shelf. There simply wasn't any room for them before.

And the rest.

As you can see I have room on it too grow.

I now have every Shannon Hale book but Rapunzel's Revenge. Barnes and Noble didn't have it, grr. This sounds like a job for Amazon. But I at least have Princess Academy now.
In other news, after visiting Squeaky Books, I made my own superhero as well. I'm not crazy about the name it picked for me, but I think I'm happy with the look.

That's all for now.

The Truth About Forever (Seriously)

The Truth About Forever The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

rating: 3 of 5 stars
I am seriously disappointed in this book. I could have like this book, but the F-word? Twice? I just can't continue, no matter how good the plot was. I admit I was thinking of going on, I always want to know what's going to happen, but I talked it over with my mom and it just isn't worth it. I don't care if the character saying it was just that kind of person, I don't need to be ambushed by a word people frequently misuse. I gave it a three because the plot had potential without that word.
