Busy Summer!

Well it's been a while since I posted! It has been a good summer though. We had record turn outs for our teen summer reading program and hopefully it'll be even better next year. I'm also happy with a new program I came up with, it's called Kindred Connections. It's a book club for parents and teens. This year we read Secret Keeper by Mitali Perkins, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and I.Q. by Roland Smith. All excellent books.

I got to meet and entertain Mitali Perkins this summer which was one of the highlights. If anyone ever gets the chance to meet her or be in one of her talks at a conference, take the chance! I'm trying to keep my book club going but I don't know if the library will be able to. I'm begging publishers to give me advance copies of their books and promising them write ups on them if they will give me enough to give to my book club members. If anyone can pull any strings I'd appreciate it! I also have more reviews to post but have to get time to write them! I'll try to put up a review for I.Q. and for the last couple of books I've read when I can. Time for sleeping now just thought I'd update this thing since I haven't done it in a while. Take care all!
