Me and you cam up with the same name for our alternatives to IMM. Guess great minds think alike. Tynga over at Tynga's reviews also came up with an alternative called Stacking The Shelves. Nice haul.

Three Times Lucky looks SO good! I'm hoping it'll get picked up as a Junior Library Guild pick so we get it at my MMS LMC! I haven't heard of the others and will have to see what they're all about. Here's Our Week in Books @Libby Blog! Happy reading!
