I have gotten some of the books I ordered, but not all of them. Still waiting on several. Eagerly. I love anticipating mail, and I've ordered a couple of things from Etsy, too, so it should be a good mail week!
Zen Ghosts, Zen Shorts, Zen Ties, and Three Questions (Based on a story by Leo Tolstoy). My husband heard an NPR interview with Jon Muth and called to tell me; he was so impressed, I ordered them immediately.
A Dignity of Dragons: Collective Nouns for Magical Beasts. Who can resist collective nouns like a dignity of dragons, a splash of mermaids, a grace of unicorns, a vengeance of harpies, a chord of sirens? The illustrations are beautiful; it is an altogether charming book for children and adults.
I really am going to review some books later today. Need to do that before I go to the library!
