Me inside the Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, VT
The second is of a beautiful tabletop inside the Briggs Carriage Bookstore in Brandon (where we stopped briefly on our way home but I didn’t buy any books):

In other news, Cindy, Tina and I have all decided to start saving money for our Book Expo America trip next year. This is the piggy bank I’m using, which is actually a cow bank called Bessie (isn’t she cute? I’m going to have to fill her several times over!):
Bessie, my BEA 2012 cow bank
My ticker counter is at the very bottom of my blog; unfortunately, I couldn’t find a cow to mark my progress (they had turtles and trains and twins, but no cows, so I settled for a camel instead).
Finally, it’s time to announce the winner of my latest giveaway: Teresa from Teresa’s Reading Corner won a copy of The Pleasing Hour by Lily King. I hope we both enjoy this book (since I haven’t read it yet) and thank you to all of you who entered my giveaway!
