Library Fun

2013 is going to be a fun year!!!

 Why you ask?

Hmm , well besides the usual fun we have in Library class , I have a few fun and new ideas the students will be helping me create. So keep an eye out and ears open!

Commericals, comic strips and Book Trailers about our favorite books to name a few things. Each class will have a special something we will be working on. 

So excited to try these all out !!

Stay tuned - more fun to come!!!

App Fun ...

Lower School this morning had their monthly assembly about building character that counts.

The 6th grade talked to us about being responsible. 

We were even dazzled by the talented 6th grade girls who set the stage with a little mood music before the program. 5th grade students did an amazing job with the introductions and thank yous.

I took a few pictures and turned the morning into this really cool cartoon with an app I had just purchased to use with students in Library class. I mean who doesn't like a good comic?

I loved getting a chance to try it out and what better way than to show off our amazing students! :)

The answer is .... ?

Yes - I mustache you this - really! 

{Silly I know, but I think the mustache craze is a tad funny and you can use them for anything and it makes me giggle!}

What are your reading plans for this year? 

Hmmm? Let me think?

Well to start off with I am finishing up Miss Dreamville - the faculty book club book - must finish before I start anything else. Great adult read!!! 

Next up I NEED to read Hana and Annabelle - both by my fav .... Lauren Oliver. They are both digital downloads that are sitting in my digital Library waiting to be read.  

March 5th - well, Lauren Oliver ... again did I tell you she is my fav? ... releases yet another digital Novella entitled Raven , which I will read and will be quickly followed my the final chapter of her Delirium Trilogy - Requiem!!! Am sad and excited to finally be reaching the finish line since this will have been a 3 year project!!!! I will  probably read Delirium and Pandemonium again just to refresh things before the last book comes out

.{So excited a printed paperback will come out in March of all 3 digital copies and will be printed together as one book - YIPPEE!}

After this - I really should finish the Match trilogy sine Reached came out in November, but I have to read Crossed first which is book number 2 in the trilogy.

It is very possible something else will catch my end and I will feel the need to read it as well.

Whatever you read - read something that excites you, takes you to a far away place , grabs hold of you and makes you say WOW!!!

Looking for a good adult read? A group of teachers here at SA are getting ready to read this .....

I started it and love it!

 4.5 Stars on Amazon!

By : Amy Hearth

Eighty-year-old Dora, the narrator of a story that began a half century earlier, is bonding with an unlikely set of friends, including Jackie Hart, a restless middle-aged wife and mother from Boston, who gets into all sorts of trouble when her family moves to a small, sleepy town in Collier County, Florida, circa 1962.
With humor and insight the novel chronicles the awkward North-South cultural divide as Jackie, this hapless but charming “Yankee,” looks for some excitement in her life by accepting an opportunity to host a local radio show where she creates a mysterious, late-night persona, “Miss Dreamsville,” and by launching a reading group—the Collier County Women’s Literary Society—thus sending the conservative and racially segregated town into uproar. The only townspeople who venture to join are regarded as outsiders at best—a young gay man, a divorced woman, a poet, and a young black woman who dreams of going to college.
This brilliant fiction debut by Amy Hill Hearth, a New York Times bestselling author, brings to life unforgettable characters who found the one thing that eluded them as individuals:a place in the world. Inspired by a real person, Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women’s Literary Society will touch the heart of anyone and everyone who has ever felt like an outsider longing to fit in.

PS - We read Gone Girl by Gilliam Flynn back in November! That was a great book with some crazy twists!!! Definitely worth a 4.5 Stars as well!!! :)


Colleen Hover had me at Slammed and Point of Retreat, but she has truly out done herself with HOPELESS!

She has created characters that are truly amazing and created a book that will take your breathe away. The twists and turns in the life of Sky Davis are ones that you don't expect and never see coming. Sky and Dean Holder are two people that engulf you and suck you straight into their story.

I cannot begin to say enough good things about this book! It's amazing! Brilliantly written! Gave me goosebumps! Hated that it ended!

I will definitely say it's an older YA book due to some of the content - BUT A MUST READ!!!!

{I could not put this book down and read it in less than 48 hours and I am a super slow reader!}

So what are you waiting for - go download this wonderful book - only in digital format at this present time!
