I love you Booklikes. I love being here, I really do... but I truly hate it when I'm trying to make a post and then you decide to stop working...

For an introduction to the characters in the DC Super Hero Girls show, this is actually a pretty entertaining book. The book tells about the Hero of the Month award, which students at Super Hero High can earn for being helpful or doing good deeds. Then it goes through some of the past winners such as Katana, Bumblebee, Wonder Woman, and Batgirl. There is a brief blurb about each student as well as place of origin, powers, and specialty.
There are also tons of cool pictures throughout the book. This definitely makes me want to watch the show. The movies have been on My List on Netflix since they were first added. Maybe I'll finally get to them this weekend.
Today, Sept 6 is "Read A Book Day."
Don't you know every day is a read a book day!? *cough* unless I'm "procrastinating". Go read a book! I finished a book, so I successfully celebrated the holiday. lol
It is also funny that today is also "Fight Procrastination Day" (Success here, too, considering I finished my book!)
The book I finished today was Bad Moonlight by R.L. Stine for the Horror Aficionados Goodreads group: R L Stine Fear Street Challenge group buddy read. There aren't very many of us doing this buddy read. I'm sure we'd all like more fresh blood reading along. We've got books picked out for the rest of the year and are probably going to continue to read books next year. I'm always the one behind on the challenge, but I'm caught up now!
Other random holidays of today:
Barbie Doll Day (Barbie first went on sale on this day in 1959.), Coffee Ice Cream Day, Great Egg Toss Day, and on a more serious note, Stillbirth Remembrance Day.
Interesting history of this day:
1870 - A Woman casts her Vote in the US for the first time.
Louisa Ann Swain voted during state elections in the state of Wyoming. Although women weren’t extended the right to vote in the US until 1920, the governor of Wyoming, John A. Campbell, had signed a bill that gave women the right to vote on December 13, 1869. This meant that women could vote in local and state elections, but not country-wide elections.
For some reason, I ended up looking up random things and here we are. You're welcome.
Searching for books for one of those crazy yet awesome Litsy exchanges I came accross this book: A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic - Doogie Horner,JJ Harrison.
How on earth did I not realize this book was available? Not only I'm a sucker for illustrated books but Die Hard is my favorite Holiday movie. Christmas in July is finally happening!
Oh, and if you don't think Die Hard is a Holiday movie, you are wrong...
