How to make a librarian happy (Part 4)

This week was filled with a wonderful amount of cataloging.  A couple dozen new books found a new home in the library!  I'd made a Scholastic order with our Scholastic Dollars earned at the book sales, but my buddy Lynette at the Superiorland Preview Center also stopped by the previous Wednesday with a box of great, new books for all ages.

From Superiorland

Marissa Moss is going to be the visiting Young Author next month.

Chapter books

The Island Horse

Baseball books

The Detroit Tigers

Two picture books and one science book

Mythology set
12 books in the World of Mythology series

Heroes of Olympus
These were both checked out within an hour of cataloging - and the time was only that long because I was holding one for a student.  Rick Riordan's books are hot.  (I reviewed The Lightning Thief, part of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, last summer.)

This is how I make the seventh grade literature teacher happy.
Sterling Biographies series

Backyard Wildlife: Ducks

Great books
Dead End in Norvelt (2012 Newbery Medal)

The last of which was checked out within five minutes of cataloging it.

The Scorpio Races
The Hunger Games (replacement copy; I reviewed this earlier this year)

What a great mass of books!  What looks good to you?
