Tomorrow is back to work for me, more roaming in the stacks and accidentally overhearing the super-private high school conversations in the aisle next to me.
I’m usually not ready, and I think anyone who shares in the three-month long break of summer knows the feeling. Sleeping in is a hard thing to relinquish, and my internal clock takes awhile to reset. Right around Thanksgiving it adjusts, and then we get a break and it acts like someone just ripped it’s AA’s out. But this year, I’m optimistic. And I’ve got a mega-nerd reason why.
Yeah, it’s books.
There are literally a ton of series coming out that I know my kids are excited about. Books have been trickling into my office over the summer months, waiting for me to bind ’em, stamp ’em, and give them away to kids that are going to spill crap on them and make them stink like cigarettes.
But I have to say I don’t care, because they’re always apologetic about the stains and one of them even has a special dance for when *his* series gets a new title.
And FYI – a dryer sheet in between the pages will get that stink right out.
What series are you most excited about this fall?
