Here are a few news and special feature articles I’ve enjoyed the past week (If you missed any of the previous posts click here to see them all):
1. Kudos to the city of Denver for hosting the seventh annual YOUTH ONE BOOK, ONE DENVER. They choose one book, purchase thousands of copies, and give them out free to youth 9-12 years old. During the summer there are many activities associated with the book to bring readers together. This year’s choice is one I read and enjoyed for the CYBIL’s.
2. Book clubs can be a fun way to socialize and talk about a novel. The adult groups in my neighborhood usually pick an adult title with the occasional YA thrown in. This post makes a good case why Middle Grade books should be a part of an adult’s reading list. It also includes a link to a fantastic selection of 100 books to get you started.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a review of BONE’S GIFT.
