It's Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA

I'm back to concentrating on library books ... I've made it my mission to "collect" area library cards. So far, I have four cards, and I currently have books checked out from three of them. It's good motivation to read the books quickly because there's no guarantee I can renew them, and I'm not often in the area of where some of these libraries are and I can only return them on specific days. And this week, I was also able to finally visit the Young Readers Center at the Library of Congress.

The Arlington Library was kind enough to allow Capitol Choices members access to their ARC collection so we can read as many new books as possible. I brought a bagful of books home and I hope I chose some books that are good enough to nominate for our current In Progress List.

But I also had a chance to go to Politics and Prose, so I also browsed their shelves and tried to catch up on some new releases and selections for Capitol Choices. I love having options of where to get my reading materials from!

[To rehash the concept :: post what you read last week, what you're reading now, and what you plan to read this week. If you have a review of the book(s), great! If you have a picture of the book(s), wonderful! If you have a book giveaway, fantastic! If you just list the title(s) of the book(s), not a problem! Make it as simple or as complex as you need it to be. At least, that's the message I got. This version of the meme is hosted by Jen and Kellee of Teach Mentor Text, which, in turn, was inspired by Sheila over at Book Journey, who hosts the original It's Monday! What Are You Reading?]
