New Book Club Book?


At the end of our meeting today, Mr. Mehsling suggested we read Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. No one present had read it (except for him), and I have been meaning to read it forever, so I'm in. We need to hear from Joel, Rachael, Nathan and our newbie, Maya. What do you guys think?

Just so you know, what made him think of it was a brief discussion of the Hunger Games... I think it would be interesting to read and compare the two!

Let's hear it.
Happy Weekend!

My brother said it was really good. Oh, and Mrs. P did Maya talk to you and ask what book we are going to read?

I'm in as well. And may I say it was a pleasure discussing "The Book Thief" with such a fine group of young minds. Thank you for making a worthwhile experience.

Hey, I'm up for anything really at this point.
By the way: my seventh grade buddy Bailee wants to join the book club, too. I'll get her in the library or on the blog sometime.

Mrs. P said...

All right, guys-- Ender's Game it is! I'm doing an open posting on the board and in the morning announcements to see if anyone else would like to join us for this book, so be prepared for our numbers to swell. We've already got three newbies; be sure to say howdy to Olivia Knight, Bailee Cruger and Maya Perrin! Hey boys, we've gotten a little out of gender balance, so if you know of any guys... :)

Hey!
So...my bro. 'indirectly' gave me my book by leaving it on my band shelf (bari sax gets a shelf not a locker)...so some band geek (ugh) took off with it. My other brother says he knows who it was. Should be no big deal.
I'm not a huge sci-fi fan, but reading something different never hurts!
See you all tomorrow!
