They're here, they're here!

What is a good indication that the new school term is beginning?

Go ahead, guess.

No, it's not the first day of class countdown (though classes start in 23 days, 17 if you don't count weekends). It is the beginning of our fiscal spending year. I was able to begin ordering in July and the first batch of children's and YA books have arrived! A compilation of lists I have been keeping since May, when the money ran out, has come to fruition. I now have a cart of eighty - yes 80 - books to quickly peruse and mark for me before handing them over to the cataloger.

Look at them (the books, not the three hundred year old book cart), they're simply gorgeous!
