Read Across The World DayPart 2

Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes!!!!! Welcome to the…

Oh, dear reader, how I do love you! You and my fellow bloggers came through to honor Dr. Seuss and celebrate literacy. Without further ado, I’ll give you the recap.

The lovely Gisela, who blogs at Adventures in Babymaking (which just makes me smirk every time I read it), read to her unbelievably adorable boys today, as usual (such a good mom!) and in her downtime (she HAS downtime?) is currently reading Lady Killer by Lisa Scottoline.

Erikasbuddy chose to read “Beastly” by Alex Flinn, probably to herself and her cats, she said via email! Beastly is a new one for me but it looks fantastic. Thanks for the suggestion, Greta!

Fellow bookworm Annie Cristina not only read today, she did so with her extremely lucky high school students, with whom she’s reading the classic Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. Annie, I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, it takes a special kind of AMAZING to teach teenagers. I bow down to you!!! She’s also reading a Regency romance, Married Past Redemption by Patricia Veryan, for pleasure. Annie, I couldn’t possibly love you more, for you KNOW how I love me some Regency lovin’!

Heather (yes, there are three bookworms named Heather, but CoDW rocks the RL name online too!) from Call of Duty Widow was a sneaky, little minx and took her pic on the sly during her break at work. She’s currently reading Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill, about vampires in Chicago. Woot for Windy City Vamps!!!!

Fellow bookworm Danny chose to take her picture reading Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, the book that brought the bookworms together! Oh, Danny, I’m so happy I read that little black book that brought you into my life!

Firecrotch chose to show us her GORGEOUS Kindle (she’s one of three bookworms that owns one!), on which she is currently reading City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. By the look on her face, I KNOW I’m going to have to check that book out. And, I will admit to having some SERIOUS Kindle envy right now!

My fellow bookworm and lemon sister, uhyesplease, sent in the TWO books she picked up today: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, which is DEFINITELY on my to-read list as well and Lament: The Faerie Queen’s Deception, also by Maggie Stiefvater, which just got added because of the cover alone! Thanks for sharing, UYP!!!!

And we’ll finish with Cutie, one of our bookworms who is currently suffering from not one, not two but FIVE FORMS OF THE PLAGUE but still crawled from her bed to the computer to send a picture of her to-read books. Feel better, Cutie and enjoy what time you get alone to read (assuming you’re not passed out or all drugged up). *hugs*

Well, thank you all for celebrating today and for helping to make this post so wonderful. You know I love each and every one of you and I can’t even begin to describe how much fun this blog is for me! I hope you got some good recommendations today and perhaps gave a few out too!

Now go and get lost…in a book!

Obsessive Reader by Night – Scientist at Day!
You can also find me on goodreads. I’d love to get to know you so, don’t be shy and say Hello!

  13. I am actually prompted using your writing ability and in addition with all the formatting in your blog page. Is niagra the given matter and also would you adjust the item your self? In any case continue to be within the exceptional high-quality crafting, it really is exceptional to determine a great website such as this one as of late.
