Well, I just went crazy and sent a bunch of books to the Lincoln Acres Branch Library. I don’t know what happened – I started at their wishlist and it spiraled out from there. I kept thinking of one more book I had to send. Anyway here’s the list of what I sent:
Mummies, Pyramids, and Pharaohs : A Book About Ancient Egypt Gail Gibbons; (This was on their wishlist).
The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference Malcolm Gladwell; (Seemed appropriate -plus it’s so interesting!).

His Dark Materials Trilogy: The Golden Compass / The Subtle Knife / The Amber Spyglass [BOX SET] Philip Pullman; (Blew me away).
1001 Most Useful English Words for Spanish-Speaking People (Beginners’ Guides) Seymour Resnick; (Good reviews, sounded useful and fun).
Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Treasure Hunt (Encyclopedia Brown (Paperback)) Donald J. Sobol; (Childhood favorite of mine).
Heroes, Gods and Monsters of Greek Myths Bernard Evslin; (Who doesn’t love the Greek myths?).
Beauty Sheri S. Tepper; (Great spin on the classic fairy tale – good for yound adult and adult readers).
The Partly Cloudy Patriot Sarah Vowell; (So funny, so smart).
Oh, Yuck: The Encyclopedia of Everything Nasty Joy Masoff; (All kids love this stuff and it’s a great way to learn).
