The Parade of Awesome is winding down, and I'm utterly exhausted. It's been a crazy busy summer, and I never even saw the Harry Potter exhibit or movie. In the last week I've travelled back from my two-month stint in Chicago, lazed around on the beach for a few days, and sadly, become computerless. Next week, I move to Virginia, but also head off for a week at the beach before getting down to brass tacks and starting my new job. Talk about a time of transition.
As I pack of my life, I keep coming across more and more ARCs that I've already read and am not sure what I should with them. There are a few that are still-to-be-released that I figure I'll share with my new middle schoolers (Collins' Catching Fire, Dashner's Maze Runner, Chadda's The Devil's Kiss, Brown's Hate List), but there are a few more that are either too mature for middle schoolers (Larbalestier's Liar and Cashore's Fire), already published (Carey's Unknowns, Wolfson's Cold Hands, Warm Heart, Friedman's The Importance of Wings, Gill's Soul Enchilada, Grant's Gone), or both (Kaye's Demon Chick, Wizner's Castration Celebration, Noel's Evermore)...and I have no idea what to do with them.
I'm not packing them up and hauling them to Virginia. I thought about raffling them off on the blog, but I move on Monday, and I think it would be a logistical nightmare to ship them off to individuals. Chucking them just seems like such a waste.
Anyone want to take these off my hands or have a great idea about what I should do with them?
