What Are You Reading: October 29, 2012: 10/28/12
I'm still reading through the CYBILS books. I've mostly finished the stack I brought home from the library. Now I am waiting for the next set to arrive. I have maxed out the number of holds I can order on both my library card, and my son's library card. I've also started using my work library card! I can't imagine how the picture book judges cope with round one reading.
My favorite non-CYBILS read was How to Wash a Cat by Rebecca M. Hale. People either love or hate the book. I think you have to know San Francisco and be interested in its history to appreciate the book.
I still want to finish How to Dine on Killer Wine by Penny Warner. I also want to read as many more CYBILS books as possible. I also still have Forget-her-nots by Amy Brecount White, and Suite Scarlet by Marueen Johnson to read by Wednesday. Then I'll start Ghouls Gone Wild by Victoria Laurie, and Me, Myself and Why? by Mary Janice Davidson.
What about you?

What exactly does CYBILS stand for?
Have a great reading week

It's not exactly an acronym but it stands for: Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards. Their site is here.

Wow, you have a lot of books to read, on al those library cards! I hope it's fun.
I'm trying to finish the last of October's review copies. Normally I finish review copies by the 20th of the month and have some time left for my "own" books. Not this time!
Comment #4: Monday, October 29, 2012 at 12:15:41
I stopped scheduling review copies years ago because I was spending too much of my free time reading for publishers and not for myself.

Pickles to Pittsburgh is a personal favorite - the lovely sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs! :) My daughter has also been on a Kazu Kibuishi binge - she's been devouring the Amulet series - can't wait to get my teeth on it as well. Work begins for us in January for Round 2 Judges, enjoy your reads!

My son is also a Kibuishi fan. We own all except for the most recent Amulet book. I have plans to purchase it, probably for a Christmas gift for him. He was also the one who introduced me to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and its sequel.

Several of your titles look fascinating...I'm off to check some reviews. And thanks for visiting my blog.

It was a decent week of reading. Thanks for stopping by.

Fortune Cookies looks adorable! I am sure the kids at my school would love it.
Comment #12: Monday, October 29, 2012 at 12:37:33
It's certainly a favorite with my daughter. I've lost track of how many times she's read it.
Comment #13: Monday, October 29, 2012 at 12:43:45
Enjoy your books. I liked How to Wash A Cat very much.
Comment #14: Monday, October 29, 2012 at 12:38:24
So did I. I am looking forward to reading the sequel.
Comment #15: Monday, October 29, 2012 at 12:53:31
Man, CYBILS reading is intense! I hope many of them are good books. Keep it up, girl!
Comment #16: Monday, October 29, 2012 at 12:39:23
The reading part is easy (albeit time consuming). The hard part is getting all the books!
Comment #17: Monday, October 29, 2012 at 22:45:20
Such a good reading pile. Enjoy them all.
Comment #18: Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 19:04:24
Thank you! I hope I do.
Comment #19: Monday, October, 29, 2012 at 23:44:20
Thanks for dropping by my blog. I hope to listen to Airborne on audiobboks soon. Are you enjoying it?
Comment #20: Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 19:05:34
Airborne is a nice mix of Robert Louis Stevenson and Jules Verne with airships.
Comment #21: Monday, October, 29, 2012 at 23:52:14
I'm one of those people that didn't care for How to Wash a Cat, but I'm glad to hear you did. I want to read How to Dine on Killer Wine by Penny Warner eventually, but I've passed it by new publications.
Comment #22: Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 19:11:35
Isn't it nice that there is such a wide variety of books to pick from? Enjoy your reading. The Penny Warner series is also lots of fun.
Comment #23: Wednesday, October 31, 2012 at 00:10:19
Wow, you been busy, wish I could get mine done faster, if real life would quite interrupteing my reading, I would lol
Comment #24: Monday, November 05, 2012 at 17:44:01
The CYBILS are keeping me busy. I have a bunch more to pick up tomorrow. Soon the ebooks will arrive. I've pretty much given up reading for fun to get through these nominees.

Comment #26: Monday, November 05, 2012 at 17:45:14
I'm about 1/3 of the way through Me, Myself and Why? It's certainly memorable.
