SUMMER READING PHOTO CHALLENGE!

Pablo! I happen to personally know that Pablo reads a lot of books-a lot. And in addition to  just reading for pure pleasure, he is also a strong participant in the Battle Of The Books competition. He’s a library favorite with his respectful manner and his sense of humor. Here we see him reading, not a book, but the sports section of USA Today and that’s okay, too!  He’s been photographed on the long drive home from my favorite city, New Orleans, where I think he and his family had a wonderful time. But I want to hear all about it when I see him after school starts in TWO WEEKS. And I’ll see you at the pizza party, Pablo!

SUMMER READING PHOTO CHALLENGE!

Finally received a photo from our lovely middle school lit teacher, Mrs. Prendergast! Who better could show us all how it’s done? You kick your shoes off, find the most comfortable chair in the house, fling your legs over the arm, sink into the cushion and start reading! Mrs. P is a fan of novelist, Jeffrey Archer, and is trying to find time to finish Mightier Than The Sword before school starts again. She has had a very busy summer with children, grandchildren and the rest of her extended family. I am pretty sure if you are looking for her, you will find her at Irish Fest next weekend! Thanks, Mrs. P! See you soon!

SUMMER READING PHOTO CHALLENGE!

I am loving this photo of these three adorable brothers. Remember how I said families should make time to read? Here is  another perfect example! I already know the oldest two boys and  I am really looking forward to meeting their younger brother, who looks as if he will be a book lover, too. These boys are funny and sweet and they always come into the library with an idea of what they want-you can tell they spend time thinking about books and reading. From the left: Patrick is reading Shark Attack! Joseph is reading The Boxcar Children (a personal favorite of mine for middle grade readers) and young Eamon is reading Moses Supposes His Toeses Are Roses and Other Rhymes. Happy Summer to all of you!

SUMMER READING PHOTO CHALLENGE!

I would love for you all to meet my friend, Cole. Cole is one of the most interesting students I know. He is knowledgeable about a lot of things and I love discussing all those subjects with him. He has beautiful manners and is very mature for his age and is a joy to have in the library. In this photo he is reading Wonders of America…The Mighty Mississippi by Marion Dane Bauer, so it looks as if he has continued learning new things over the summer. I’m not sure but I think I may see a glimpse of Huck Finn on the page he is reading. I am going to have to ask him when I see him in just a couple of weeks! And I will also see you at the pizza party, Cole!

SUMMER READING PHOTO CHALLENGE!

Sitting on a pontoon boat with my puppy, Charlotte, and reading a good book is my idea of heaven and I do it as often as I can. This time I am reading Love and Ruin by Paula McLain.  It’s a novel about journalist and novelist and  Ernest Hemingway’s third wife (out of four), Martha Gellhorn,  I used to know someone who knew her and they always maintained she was the best wife for him as she was the only one ever who challenged him. This book is pretty good if you are a Hemingway devotee like I am. Keep sending me your reading photos! Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!

Murray. What can I tell you about Murray? He always walks into the library with a sunny smile and a greeting. Always in a good mood and laid-back, he is a charmer! Murray is loving learning to read and his mom tells me he also loves his little sister, Eloise. Another thing he loves is Star Wars. And here he is reading Vader’s Little Princess by Jeffrey Brown to the his sister-the princess of the family (and she is a cutie).  What a perfect day! Murray, I can’t wait for you to read for me when I see you in a few weeks! Happy summer!

SUMMER READING PHOTO CHALLENGE!

Here’s a student who is not unfamiliar on this blog. Why? Because he is a READER! Craig never leaves home without a book. I see here that he is reading  Charlie Pippin by Candy Dawson Boyd. He has reached the public library goal of 2000 pages this summer and has moved on to our book list for the Battle of the Books competition. Craig is a well-rounded guy and is so engaging to talk to-I really enjoy his company. One of the reasons he is so fun is that he is very well-read and has lots to talk about. Reading can take you on adventures and teach you so much about many subjects; you learn without effort. Thank you, Craig!
