Every Sunday, we share the books that have found their way into our shelves either from libraries, book shops – or simply landed into our mailboxes.

  1. Great selection!! (I tried to click on your link to part one, but it didn’t take me anywhere, by the way.) My kids really liked “You Forgot Your Skirt, Amelia Bloomer!” by Shana Corey.
