Shaemus's Birthday Books

Shaemus is not my best reader. He is the least interested in reading in every way, but as we began opening presents yesterday, I witnessed something that made me very, very happy. 

The first thing he did when he was through opening his new ipod shuffle (holy cow, those things are teeny) and his cordless drill and miter saw (he loves to build things), was grab ahold of his new books and run away where no one could steal them or bother him as he read them. 

And he proceeded to pour over all four. 

Okay, he didn't exactly read them. He skimmed them. Quickly. Like a voracious animal who is afraid if he doesn't eat quickly enough, all the meat will be gone. 

But still, it was the books he ended up being the most excited about. Which for Shaemus is AWESOME!

So here's what he got, all chosen by him a few weeks earlier (which may have something to do with his enthusiasm):
