Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
The library is CLOSED Thursday and Friday,
but will be open Saturday, November 24.
Please Ignore Vera Dietz, by A. S. KingFifteen attended 8+9 Book Club, at which we discussed You Killed Wesley Payne, by Sean Beaudoin. This may be the most debated book we have read, since half the club thought it was amazing and the other half hated it! Some thought it was really clever, others thought it was too clever to be readable, but all agreed that the glossary at the back was the best part of the book. (Some thought that if the glossary had become footnotes, the book would have been better.) The ratings went from a low of 4 to a high of 9, with an average of 6.8. Next month we are reading Human.4, by Mike A. Lancaster, and then we are finally making Cameron happy by reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams, our second choice after we were unable to get copies of Let It Snow, the volume of short stories by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle. We will be adding a few copies of this to the library's collection, however, so you can check it out and read it on your own. Christopher, Alvin and Arsh can pick up Human.4 at either library.
