It’s time for a haul! I have stocked up on books lately thanks to 2 sales in town: one at the public library (at which you stack your books and they charge you by the inch – adorable, right?), and then a special Scholastic book fair for teachers and librarians where everything was super cheap. I ultimately got 6 used books at the former sale and 7 new at the latter, hence the title of the haul as a reference to the 90’s movie “6 Days 7 Nights” with Harrison Ford and Anne Heche. Anyone? 2 people stranded on an island? Who fall in love? For 6 days and 7 nights? And it’s adorable and cheesy? No? Go watch it.
