Weekly Geeks & an Awesome Bookstore
If you haven’t had a chance to check out Carl’s blog recently, stop by today to read this post all about unusual and beautiful book storage. Pretty neat, huh? It reminded me of Kid’s Republic, a bookstore in Beijing China for children.
Yep, that’s it above! As you can see, it’s just Incredible! I had every intention of visiting this bookstore while in Beijing last July, but with only two short days in the city and a full itinerary including The Great Wall and The Forbidden City, we never had the chance to go. Oh well, maybe we will make it back there one day.
Now, on to the first Weekly Geek post! Dewey asked us to visit five new blogs and to write about what we found. I had been to quite a few of them in the past, but found a few new gems to post about.
Valentina’s Room– I knew I had to add this site once I read through some of Valentina’s excellent reviews of A Book of a Thousand Days, The Thirteenth Tale and The Spiderwick Chronicles.
Reader Rabbit – Again with the Shannon Hale reviews!
Books & Other Thoughts– First, I have to say that I love the header (and wish I was sitting in a hammok under a palm tree right now)! She also seems to review a lot of books I haven’t ever heard of, including ones that she reads to her daughter (who is close in age to mine). This site is a great find!
Lost in a Good Story – Joanna’s blog caught my eye when I saw reviews for The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and The Thirteenth Tale, both favorite reads of mine. Plus, she’s been to Paris recently, which has always been a dream for me – lucky girl!
Bookworms and Tea Lovers – How can you not like a blog with that title!
