The Long Haul
The Long Haul: Diary of a Wimpy Kid | Jeff Kinney
21 posts | 38 read | 1 reading | 8 to read
The Diary of Wimpy Kid series of books, by best-selling author Jeff Kinney, charts the highs and lows of our middle school hero, Greg, as he stumbles and fumbles from childhood to teenhood via school-hood. Sometimes helped by his friends and family, often not helped by himself! Can't wait for more details about Book 9? Here's what we can tell you: Greg Heffley and his family hit the road in author-illustrator Jeff Kinney's latest instalment of the phenomenal bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Not much to go on? You KNOW it's going to involve Greg being the daft idiot we all love, and his family driving him nuts, and his friend-issues... so buckle-up, it's going to be a side-splitting ride!

A little #bookhaul that came with Providence:

another volume of Strugatsky brothers' collected works, sci-fi from my favorite fantasy writer #StevenErikson, Robert Young's stories and postmodernist Russian novel about Sakhalin Island. All #TBR

Well... This is my oldest #bookhaul (from two years ago), and all I can really say is that I haven‘t read the book I tagged yet. 😂🤦🏼‍♀️ #bookhaulchallenge

Lcsmcat Do you know what books are in there? I would be making myself crazy trying to figure it out. 😀 3mo
hes7 @Lcsmcat The only one I can guess is the blue/black hardcover, which I think is The Graveyard Book—and I have read it! Bringing my stats to 1 out of 2 + 15ish unknowns. 😂😂🤦🏼‍♀️ 3mo

My book haul from Chicago's Barnes and Nobles.
I was there for a business trip. I didn't manage to do a lot of reading but I managed to do some "good shopping" ?

Just went to the book barn today and got a bit of books. I like to add up book totals and compare it to how much I would have spent at full price and it was $400 for full price. I only spent about $80 and that was with a $30 store credit. ❤️ #bookhaul

Happy Sunday📚💗🤗 Started this one😍

This is my second haul that I got from GoodWill. Pretty darn good selection I have to say. All of these these books came out to be $27. The deals are real. And let me tell you that I spent $35 on three books at Barnes and Noble a few months ago, so I've definitely learned my lesson, that's for sure. #deals #bookhaul.

swishandflick Nice haul! 2y
Ssmith You have some great books there! 2y

Sadly the independent bookstore by me, #riverread is going out of business this month. I went to stock up on #bookishgifts (in the bag) for my fellow #littens, and ended up getting some for myself. Early birthday gift to me!

I've read them all and this is my favorite one presently. The family vacation was a lot of laughs and Manny and the pig is priceless!!

For the #photoadaynov16 theme of planes, trains and automobiles I picked road trip stories. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was given to my dad by a co-worker. I have yet to read it, but I'm pretty sure it's been on my bookshelves in one house or the other for over 30 years. I'll get to it eventually... ✈️🚂🚗

post image

Back from our own road trip, where 9yo and I listened to this book. The scene where the cinnamon rolls explode and Roderick thinks it was his head, that Manny is licking his brains... Definitely made me #laugh

Second only to when the Mom takes Greg to the vet and writes "human" on the intake form.

TheSpinecrackersBookClub They ate quite good. Also enjoyed the Spud books. 3y
