Welcome Back!

I hope you had a wonderful summer! Mine was great but went by quickly!!!
I look forward to seeing you all in the library soon. Can’t wait to hear about the books you read over vacation!

The library will be open for after lunch visits as often as possible.  We will also resume our lunchtime clubs soon.  Please email or see me if you want to hold a club in the library.

Have a great week!

What are you planning to read this summer?

Summer is quickly approaching! (Less than 30 school days to go!) I’m starting to compile my “To Read” list. Hopefully I’ll get lots (OK at least some 😉 time to read this summer!) So far I want to read City of Bones, maybe The Fault in Our Stars (though you know how I am with sad books), Liar and Spy, and Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.  Plus many more I’m sure! And I’ll (as usual) be rereading several of my favorites…Pride and Prejudice, Anne of Green Gables, and the Harry Potter series

What’s on your to read list?  Any suggestions for me? Oh and if you haven’t taken the library’s survey see my last post for the link.

Thanks and Happy Reading!

Mrs. M

How similiar is too similiar?

I’d imagine it’s pretty hard to come up with unique ideas for books.  This also raises the question of how similar is too similar when talking about major plot points.  A new book is being published that sounds pretty familiar to me plot-wise.  What do you think?
