Latest Books

We hit the used book store again and here’s some goodies I found:

This one looks fun! Check out that awesome mailbox!! I flipped through it and the story has Grandma Duck and Gus Goose in it.

I was reading all the titles on the spines of the books on the kid’s shelf and Six-Guns and Shurikens jumped out at me. I was even more suprised when I saw it was TMNT book. It’s got a few illustrations inside too. May take this baby to work and read it at lunch!

This is #4 in a series. I’ve never heard of it before which is exciting but even more exciting is what is written in small type on the back cover:

The Young Astronaut Council is an international program designed to prepare young people for the Space Age. Founded and chaired by Jack Anderson, the Council is co-chaired by Ronald Reagan and President and Mrs. Bush and has many veteran astronauts on its Board of Directors. Its mission is to promote the study of space-related subjects, to fire the imaginations of young people everywhere, and to encourage the spirit of adventure.

Pretty awesome right? Especially considering I got this the day after the last space shuttle landed for good. Really looking forward to reading this. The cover reminds me of the movie Space Camp, which I like.

And then I spotted this baby!!! Oh yeah! I love the Ewoks. Yes, I have never been ashamed of my fondess for the Ewoks. And now I can read about the one who was afraid.

Oh yeah, there was one more book I meant to buy but it got left behind on accident…

It was like one of those Choose Your Own Adventure books, but when you got to the part where you pick your path you would role a dice and it would tell you where to go. Awesome. It was like a role-playing adventure book. Hopefully they’ll still have it when we go back…
