  1. More great books! :) I must say I'm jealous about The Everafter and Silver Pheonix.

    I had a lot of fun, as I see you did too! :) Sorry we didn't bump into each other - I wimped out on Andersons (I was sooo tired...).

  4. VERY VERY ENVIOUS of your Patrick Carman grab!!! My students are waiting on the edge of their seats for that one! I only had to read a handful of pages and show them two videos before I had a waiting list for that book!
