  • December Subject of the Month
    The December subject of the month is series books. (Read a book that fits the descriptions of each subject every month and you are eligible for an end of the year prize).  
    A series book doesn't have to be a graphic novel by the way.  Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia are two examples.

    YOU DO NOT HAVE TO READ AN ENTIRE SERIES - just one of the books in it.

  • November subject
    Now that November is over, the Subject of the month is History - either Fiction or Non-Fiction.  Don't worry, if you are interested, you can still read a book during December that qualifies.

  • July 3, 2014
    Summer means getting outside, enjoying summer activities and reading those books you couldn't get to during the year.  Future posts will introduce you to books we'll have for the coming year, and maybe some you should find before then.
