Too many books? I think not.

Last week I read Janssen's post about her library books and thought it was a neat idea. And then Mel posted about her library books. Being in library school I thought "what a good idea...too bad I don't have any good variety of books checked out from the library..." I'm pretty sure I had two seasons of Friends and a couple books about the evils of plastic checked out. So I figured I'd put that thought on hold till some of my holds came in and I had a more varied collection of books. That time has come. Now you'll probably look at my stack and think that I somehow contrived it based on the above confession, but I swear it wasn't on purpose.
Anne's House of Dreams by L.M. Montgomery--Who doesn't love Anne and Gilbert?

Friends Season 3--I love that my library has full seasons of TV shows, in addition to a great selection of movies.

Plastic Ocean: How a Sea Captain's Chance Discovery Launched a Determined Quest to Save the Oceans by: Charles Moore and Cassandra Phillips--I haven't started this one yet, but I'm excited about it.

ABC for Book Collectors by: John Carter--This one is for one of my classes, but I'm nerdy and am looking forward to the readings from it.

Bottlemania: How Water Went on Sale and Why We Bought It by: Elizabeth Royte--this one is actually fairly similar to the documentary Tapped, but I'm still learning new things about the battles over water, especially in Maine.

How to Be a Brit by: George Mikes--I saw this one and couldn't let it pass by. This looks hilarious.

Ernest Shackleton by: George Plimpton--So far it has been an enlightening biography.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Bike Maintenance and Repair by: Terry Meany--I decided it was time for me to learn to fix my own bike...

I love that you're writing about all of these things you're learning about plastics. I'm learning through you.

I'll be anxious to see how you like How to Be Brit.

I will let you know that book turns out. It just looks hilarious.

I've got another plastics post coming up soon. My lunchbot arrived today! http://www.amazon.com/LunchBots-Stainless-Steel-Food-Container/dp/B0044R7VTS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1348181876&sr=8-1&keywords=lunchbots+uno
