While Amit was up in Keene, since there was no internet access and it was too early in the season for our favorite shows, he found himself doing a lot more reading. A LOT. He found some books at a bookstore near his dental office, so we've been adding to our library. We were driving around on Friday and saw a sign at the Needham Library advertising their semi-annual book sale. Since Amit is now obsessed with reading, he decided we had to go. So we did. We ended up buying nine books for $9! What a great deal! We're heading back tomorrow afternoon since books are 50% tomorrow. Looks like we'll need to build some more bookshelves when we move to our new destination.

Can you guess which one is meant for Emma? 
 I think she likes it!
I got a book by Temple Grandin, which I am SO excited to read.
Amit bought a lot of other good looking books.
I found two vintage Winnie the Pooh books, which I was psyched about. 
And the highlight? An old children's book about a fat kid who visualizes a gorilla and 
somehow that makes him not like junk food and lose weight. Hilarious!

I also read this great article on CNN by one of Amit's favorite authors, James Patterson. I think he makes a great point - just read what interests you, then try to branch out a little. Looks like I'll be printing this and adding it to my teaching bag of tricks. Now go read:
