Adam Rex "celebrating" his win as March Book Madness Champion

I also mentioned in my vlog that my dog Frank is a curmudgeon (see? big word). This is a perfect example of his curmudgeon-iness. He was mad that he got a bath and that his bed was put in the wash, so he went to mope in his toy basket:


  1. Lol - he is adorable :-) Hope you enjoy all your books.


  2. What an adorable doggie! Cute! :) The Doppelganger chronicles look interesting. Enjoy reading!

    Here's my Mailbox.

  3. Hi there Beth, I always enjoy visiting your mailbox. :) A lot of familiar reads. Mo Willems! How great to see a few picture books in mailboxes, very refreshing! My ten year old daughter also love Dork Diaries. I think she has the complete set. The Billy Collins book finds are perfect for National Poetry Month, I've read a few of his poems and loved it. I'm particularly interested though with The Doppelganger Chronicles, looks really nice! Have fun with your new reads.

    Here's mine over at GatheringBooks:

  4. I love the DORK DIARIES books :)

  5. I've been meaning to read the novels written by Lasky last month, but then something always got in the way. Hope you enjoy all of your reads!
