Our Week in Books...

This is our week in books at Libby Blog! 
This feature is not our own original idea and is inspired by so many others that are out there (esp. IMM created by Story Siren and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Review) with the goal of sharing our new books and getting to know one another a bit better in the book blogging world. If you have a similar post for the week, please share it in the comments so we can comment back...

Wow, it has been a few weeks since we've done one of these! I guess we are just enjoying our summer and reading, reading, reading! :) How about you? I cannot believe that it's only a few weeks before the kiddos will be back at school with us! AND, we just found out that my girls will be WITH US this year! WHOA! That is going to be a HUGE change for us, but such a big one that we so desperately wanted to try. Ange is back in the extreme Northwoods of Wisconsin for the whole of next week enjoying her last week of "freedom".
