Rewind & Review #43

Rewind & Review

Holy wow, the last two weeks have been packed with a surprising amount of books. I've been trading again, and some publishers, authors, and bookstores have been very nice to me.
I've been busy unpacking my belongings...and then repacking them because my parents and I leave on Friday to take me back to Asbury. I filled my smaller suitcase with books, and I plan to fill several boxes too. I can't wait to see all my friends again, meet my roommate (her name is Emma, too!), and get back into the swing of things. I haven't missed certain stuff at Asbury, but there's a lot of I'm looking forward to. Now if only Marissa Meyer were going to Cincinnati or Lexington on her tour for Winter... *sigh*
(Psst! Look what's at the bottom of the post!)
