What Did I get from Capstone?

capstoneNot long ago, Capstone hosted a drawing on their blog, Capstone Connect.  Because they were moving, they were finding all kinds of fabulous things.  Just what did they find?  Check out the photo!

I won the drawing and was expecting a bag and a book or two.  This is what I got:

  • TWO bags.  One is already home to three knitting projects.  The second is probably going to replace my library bag.  Yes, I’m the kind of geek that has a dedicated library bag.  I’ve been using the same bag since my son was born and, in spite of the occasional trip through the washer, it is starting to show its age.
  • An awesome nonfiction book on Iwo Jima — Raising the Flag: How a Photograph Gave a Nation Hope in Wartime by Michael Burgan.  I’m always on the lookout for nonfiction to study but I may have competition.  This is the one my son is most interested in reading himself.
  • Two illustrated novels, Aquaman: Deepwater Disaster by J. E. Bright and Tony Hawk’s 900 Revolution: Drop In by Donnie Lemke.  My son and husband love superheroes and so do I so I’ve been interested in the DC Super Hero line that Capstone is now producing.
  • And, last but not least, a picture book series —  I See Spring, I See Summer, I See Fall and I See Winter by Charles Ghigna.  The I See set is  part of the Picture Window imprint.  This is a set of concept books.

Whew.  If I don’t come up with an idea or 12 after studying all of this, I’m simply not trying.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some reading to do.
