Hi Rattler Readers!
Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but getting the library up and running and training our small army of parent volunteers has kept me busy lately.
There's a lot to discuss! #1 is the upcoming, right-around-the-corner release of Brisingr, the third (BUT NOT LAST) release in the Inheritance series, following Eragon and Eldest. Have you read this books? Are you excited?!! I need to go back and reread the first two because it's been a while. If you're interested in joining me, look for the Inheritance display on the north wall of the library and check a copy out!
#2 is a Twilight update. The movie has been moved up; the release date is now right around Thanksgiving! Did you guys know that? And speaking of, did we like Breaking Dawn? What did we think? I'm curious to know where you guys are on this one... I have mixed emotions, myself.
#3 is our author visit in December! Gordon Korman, author of Swindle, Schooled, No More Dead Dogs, the Everest, Island, and Dive series among others will be coming to Altona to speak to the grade levels. I am very excited about Altona's first-ever author visit! I'm thinking maybe we should set up book clubs and read his books to get prepared. For those of you who haven't read his stuff, he is a fun-- and funny-- author.
I think that's it for now. Comment away, people! Let's get this blog rolling again!
