Hi, I have started reading the second in the Needlecraft Mystery Framed in Lace by Monica Ferris. A good little mystery series with a needlecraft pattern free in the back of the book! Mrs. Murray is reading Varjak Paw by S.F. Said, a new chapter book for children 4th grade – 9th grade. She says it reminds her of the Cat Who books by Lilian Jackson Braun, another good mystery series which involves a cat. Mrs. Dunn is listening to Summer by Karen Kingsbury which is the second book in the Sunrise series. We own the book but not the audio, you can download it from Audio Books, Music and More. I thought I would also tell you about some books we own that are coming out in the movies. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer is coming out November 21st, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne comes out November 14th, and The Tale of Desperaux by Kate DiCamillo is coming out December 19th, Marley and Me by John Brogan is coming out December 25th.
We are getting a day off early, the Library will be taking Friday & Saturday off to coincide with the school closing to observe Veteran’s Day. We will NOT charge you for any movies that would be due on Friday November 7th or Saturday November 8th. We will open Monday as usual. I finally finished Profiles in Courage by John F. Kennedy, it was a good read and very interesting to find out politics have been the same since the beginning of our nation! I am now reading Rough Weather by Robert B. Parker, a Spenser novel. These books are always a good read. I am going to try to read next The Dangerous Days of Daniel X by James Patterson and also Nelson DeMille’s new book The Gate House. Be sure to look on our New Materials page for new books and movies. Also we have gotten in the new paperback series of The Needlecraft Series. Have a great weekend!
Hello, in my web searching I found a fun page where you can find out how to pronounce several children’s authors names. Many of the authors tell a story of how their name came about. This will be in our Databases in the right column but I am also putting it in the blog. Author: How do you say my name?
Well I have returned from my vacation, what a fun time. I just finished a couple of fun books. I am purchasing the series by Monica Ferris the first of which is Crewel World another fun murder mystery that also comes with a free needlework pattern in the back of the book! I also read the second book by Lisa Lutz entitled Curse of the Spellmans. It is about a family of Private Investigators that just can’t help spying on each other and everyone they meet. A funny story. We will be putting out some new movies in the next couple of days so be sure to check the new materials page. Also we have some new kids books that have just come in . Stop by and see what’s happening!
I just finished the last in the Yada Yada series. This is a really fun series that also deals with serious issues. Mrs. Murray just finished a chapter book entitled Swindle by Gordon Korman. It is a fun story about 2 young boys who find a priceless baseball card and get swindled when they sell it and how they come out on top. She is going to read next a young adult novel, Frozen Fire by Tim Bowler. It begins with a phone call from a stranger saying “I’m dying” and continues in suspense. Mrs. Wasson is going to read The Pearl by John Steinbeck. Mrs. Dunn is listening to the Sunrise series by Karen Kingsbury. Don’t forget you can just click on the book cover and see if the book is back in our library yet. October is here and fall is in full swing. Enjoy a good book!
I decided to read one of our Young Adult books that we purchased this year, it is a series that has been going in and out like mad. Twilight by Stephenie Meyers, so far it is very well written and keeping my attention. Ask around I am sure someone you know has read this series. Mrs. Murray is reading a new book from Junior Library Guild entitled No Choirboy by Susan Kuklin. She says it is very interesting. Connie is reading Yellow Star by Jennifer Rozine Roy, one of this years WAWs. Mrs. Dunn has been listening to Miss Julia Meets her Match by Ann Ross and says it is very funny. Come by and see what we are reading!
