Since I just got back from vacation, I don’t have too many books this week, although I do have some pictures of some of my vacation haul.
- Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
- Wizards, Wardrobes and Wookiees by Connie Neal (received along with my registration to Ascendio)
And here’s some of the stuff I picked up while on vacation to Disney:
Pictured: Minnie Mouse Notepads, Yeti hat from the Expedition Everest ride, coin purse from Japan (in Epcot), Minnie Mouse keychain, Disney wristlet, Minnie Mouse pencils, fan from Japan (in Epcot), Disney Princess Notepads (they’re double-sided, so have other dresses on their reverse sides).
Here’s a close-up of the fan, including my name in Japanese:
And here was what was included in my Ascendio registration (stay tuned for a write-up of some of the YA Literature panels I attended!):
Pictured: Bracelet that reads “I’ve got 99 problems but a Snitch ain’t one”, bookmark for From Girl to Goddess (which is written by a member of the Harry Potter fandom who presented at the conference), my Ascendio name badge, cute Hufflepuff-colored tote bag, postcard featuring new artwork by Mary GrandPre (illustrator for the Harry Potter books), the Ascendio program guide, and some Ravenclaw-themed beads (which I picked up for my brother).
Also, Libba Bray was at the conference, and did a reading and signing for us, so I asked her to sign my copy of Rebel Angels:
Let me just say that Libba Bray is completely awesome. She is funny, insightful, and possibly the nicest person I’ve ever met. If you have a chance to meet her, definitely do!
I also got plenty of HP-themed swag from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, including some awesome pins and a pink pygmy puff, but I figured this was enough pictures for one week. Also not pictured is my diploma from the University of Illinois, showing that I completed my MLIS, which I received in the mail while on vacation.
So what did you get this week? Please link me!
