More Bar-Mitzvah Gifts

Wow. And I thought that the gifts were done. Today, my neighbor Kathryn got me three awesome gifts. She got me this really cool bendy lamp, an awesome and really soft chair, and a book that I already had. The bendy lamp was silver and you could bend the little stems at the top. There are five stems, each with a light and a really cool light cover. I need to get the right light bulbs before I can use it though. The chair is kinda like a fold up chair, only one where you need to use a duffel bag to carry. Instead of the kind of cover a fold up chair has, it has a circular blue cover that is corduroy and very, very soft. I'm sitting in it right now!!! The book I got was a copy of "The Alchemyst" by Michael Scott. I'm probably the only person who would choose not to take it back and get a different one because its paper back and I only have hardback. That's me, the bibliophile and book collector.

Other than those gifts I got from Kathryn today, I also got $100 from my Aunt Holly and Uncle Mike!

Thank you, Holly, Mike, and Kathryn!!!

Hi guys. Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but I've been busy with my Bar-Mitzvah and school. The Bar-Mitzvah was on Saturday, and I got a load of gifts. I got about $1800 , some gear for my bike, an awesome new Star Wars video game, a 14 karat gold Jewish star necklace, and a Seattle Sonics bobble head. I got lucky and more is coming. I especially love the necklace. The kind of necklace has been given to all members of my dad's family at their bar-mitzvah. I've wanted one for a long time.

I'm really glad that the whole thing is over. I've been practicing for months.

Over the Fence Library-Upcoming Fantasies

Hi guys. I just wanted to tell you that I've finally decided to get rid of Over the Fence Library (I never posted there anyway) and make a new site, Upcoming Fantasies. There, I'll talk about upcoming YA or MG fantasy books that I'm excited about. I'll also say when their released, and any other news I can find about them. However, after I read it, I'll post more on it here, at Bookworm.
