February & March 2018 Book Pick Ups

The Deliberate Reader
Sometimes life is so busy that I don’t have the time to keep up with entering books into Librarything or Goodreads or the blog. That’s been the case lately. Which is why for the second time in a row I am combining two posts together for the pick ups blog.

For Kindle:

Bone Music (The Burning Girl Series Book 1)
Why I got it: Kindle First choice for February.

A Glimmer of Hope (The Avalon Chronicles Book 1)
Why I got it: Kindle First choice for March.

Reign of Magic
Why I got it: Author Freebie. I’m on the Author’s email list and she offered it up for reviews.


The Pink Umbrella
Why I got it: It looked like a fun kids book full of color.

Clod Makes A Friend
Why I got it: I loved the description about a boy who was bullied so much he had to make his own friend. I had no idea at the time I requested it how truly wonderful Clod Makes A Friend would turn out to be. Read my review.

Bathroom Boogie
Why I got it: It sounded hilarious.

Kids Books:

Lewis and Clark: The Astoria Cats
Why I got it: We met the author, who is also the Mayor of Astoria at an event, and of course I had to buy her book. I mean cats plus Oregon history!

The Gruffalo
Why I got it: It was the book fair dollar picture book, and for some reason I didn’t have this classic on my shelf yet.

Junie B Jones: Dumb Bunny
Why I got it: This was the book fair dollar chapter book, and I love Junie B. Jones. And that is all.

Video Game Guides:

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: Official Game Guide for PC and Xbox 360
Why I got it: A thrift store find. Saddest story of my life is the 200+ hour Oblivious game on an Xbox 360 hard drive ruined by the red-ring of death (and yes, it;s unrecoverable, we’ve tried. 🙁 )

Pokemon Black and Pokemon White Versions 1 – The Official Pokemon Strategy Guide
Why I got it: The 7 year old bought Pokemon white for my husband for his birthday. Of course, guess whose the one whose been playing it. 😉 This was another, and timely, thrift store find.


The Flanders Panel
Why I got it: Thrift store find. It seemed interesting, but I haven’t been able to read it yet.

StrengthsFinder 2.0
Why I got it: Thrift store find and this one has been on my list for a while. I plan on getting to it as soon as I finish my year long KidMin academy class.

Jesus Calling: Enjoy Peace in His Presence
Why I got it: Another thrift store find. I have the children’s version and have been wanting the adult version too.

Sacred Ground: Celebrating Fifty Years of Broken Arrow Bible Ranch
Why I got it: A special book celebrating the 50th anniversary of the camp in New Mexico where I worked for a summer. It’s such a special place in my heart that my husband and I still support the camp so that it will be able to host campers for years to come.

Letters from Rifka
Why I got it: Thrift store find and an interesting sounding book in the vein of Number the Stars.

Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia
Why I got it: Thrift store find that I bought for my grandmother to read, but I think I’m going to keep it and read it myself.
