I got $100 of books for free!


Yes, free. Can you believe it? What book lover / reader / book blogger wouldn't be excited about that?!

My school district is doing voluntary implicit bias training for its staff so I signed up. I'll admit it feels a bit like we're just the guinea pigs for a local university researcher, but for doing 2 surveys I got a $100 Amazon gift card. Well worth it.

  • The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzie Lee--I really enjoyed the first boo in this series so this book was a must.
  • Underground America: narratives of undocumented lives edited by Peter Orner--Primary sources for the social studies teachers with whom I work. 
  • The Voice of Witness Reader--for work. It's interviews with people who have survived the world's major events.
  • The War Outside by Monica Hesse--another WWII novel by an author I like.
  • The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak--1980s references? Yes please!

  • Little Boy Lost by JD Trafford--Recommended by a couple bloggers and it just looks so good.
  • The Fashion Committee by Susan Juby--a fun YA book that was the first book I read of this group
  • A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles--recommended by so many people I must read this one
  • Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate--also recommended by a bunch of people



Do you have favorites among these books?
