Book Haul: Book Nerd Mail #90 – OLASC 2015

book nerd mail

Stacking The Shelves (or what I like to call BOOK NERD MAIL) is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks. Join the book haul meme at Tynga’s Reviews.

So last week I went downtown to the annual OLA Super Conference. This is known for librarians but people don’t know is that you can grab an expo only badge for $35. I met Hayley from Booking it with Hayley G, and it was just so much fun hanging out the whole day with a friend.

    Shadow Scale?! tries to hide her jealousy Seriously, though, I hope you enjoy it. And it sounds – and looks – like you had a blast at the conference!
