Book Clubs: Howzit Going?

Summer (for Burbank teens, at least) will be coming to an end in just a few weeks. While we don't have our first book club meetings until SEPTEMBER, we're thinking that once you get back into school in August, you're not going to have so much time to read recreationally, so how ARE you all coming along with your summer series?

6+7 CLUB

Your series is "Circle of Magic," by Tamora Pierce--four books: Sandry's Book, Tris's Book, Daja's Book, and Briar's Book. If you haven't yet picked up the first book, NOW is the time! You have three more to read after that! Look for them on the "YA Paperbacks" bookshelf--they're not in the catalog. If you can't find them, ask one of us for help.

 

 

8+9 CLUB

Your series is "Midnighters," by Scott Westerfeld--three books: The Secret Hour, Touching Darkness, and Blue Noon. Are you finding the sequels at the library and getting them read?


 

10-12 CLUB

Your series is "The Queen's Thief," by Megan Whalen Turner--four books: The Thief, The Queen of Attolia, The King of Attolia, and A Conspiracy of Kings. I saw that somebody had placed a hold on books 2-4 last week, so I know SOMEONE is reading the series...but we have quite a few unclaimed copies of the first book sitting on our shelf!


  

If you are interested in being a member of one of our TEEN BOOK CLUBS, you should know that the 6+7 Club and the 8+9 Club are FULL--but there is a waiting list! There IS room in our 10-12 Club, for a few more readers. For more information (to join or be put on a waiting list), go to our teen information page, on the BPL website, and follow the instructions!

We have missed you over the summer, and are looking forward to a new year of reading!
