Five New Books and a Gift

I bought some books last month with my (swag bucks earned) Amazon gift cards.
If you haven't already signed up for Swag Bucks you really should give it a try.
I've totaled $45.00 in gift cards since I started the program.
All of these books happen to be on the topic of autism.
I just finished "Boy Alone", it was rated five stars,
 but I think I'd knock it down a star or two
for all the f-words.  I won't be sending this one to my
daughter as I sometimes like to do when I find some good
information to pass on.

My daughter, Amanda recommended a book she just finished
called ROOM.  So I also ordered it and started reading it this weekend.
I've done quite a bit of reading while I was sick.

I'm on the last 25 pages already as it's hard to put down.
I'm hooked on the narrative of the little five year old boy 
  and seeing things through his eyes.

It's a book that would be great for a club to read and discuss.
I'm finding I wish I had someone to talk about it with.

Two gifts came in the mail, but the bird is put away with Christmas decorations already.
This one however will be staying with the rest of my collection.

I love it!
And yes, Samoluk family...I miss you too,
each and every one of you.

I requested Room from the library so as soon as I get it and read it we can talk.

Would you like me to mail you my copy?
