Jess and Rach's Book-Hauling Trip of Awesome The Return- Day 1

 Saturday, 28 August 2010

Howdy hey folks sorry for the absence of posts over the last few days, I've kind of been ignoring my blogger and Twitter in the hopes of avoiding Mockingjay spoilers (Thankfully I've been successful so far). But since the Roadtrip of Awesome is now over *sad face* I thought I'd better tell y'all about it as soon as possible.

This trip was only to be a two-day venture since last time Jess felt really ill after the second day and had to go home so we didn't want to risk that happening again. Thankfully there were no mishaps along the way.

To save repeating myself I shall simply embed the Youtube Videos we filmed telling you about the first day adventures and showing off our wonderful haul. Apologies for the cut-off at the end of the second video- it was originally *much* longer than that but when it was processed loads of it has been lost :( I shall summarise the contents for you at the bottom.

Rachel's Books from Day 1
A Map of the Known World by Lisa Ann Sandell (From Jess's Weeded Bags)

There may be one or two books of Jess's that I've forgotten so forgive me. We had an awesome first day and even though the weather wasn't quite as sunny as would have been preferable at least it didn't chuck it down with rain like was predicted. When we got home we had pizza for dinner *nom nom nom* and then we watched The Little Mermaid on dvd *nerdy grin*. A generally fabulous day all round :D

Check out the next post for my second day haul and the picture of all my books and I'll link to Jess's post with the photos of her books.
