Multnomah County Library celebrated its 150th anniversary yesterday. I was there for the first hour as part of the Friends of the Library. We played trivia and asked riddles with the book and library-loving crowd. The library itself had guest speakers, free ice cream and donuts, story times in various languages, and so many more things going on they had to close off one of the streets! There was even a marching band.
This week, I posted:
–New Releases: September 23,2014– Read my reviews for:
–Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge Wednesday– Read my reviews for:
–Celebrate This Week– This week, I’m celebrating graphic novels. Read my reviews for:
A cute wordless picture book about a hungry fox and the all the different animals he meets on his way to dinner. I enjoyed the twist at the end!
I just couldn’t get into these books but people do like them.
Reminded me a bit of Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree and the illustrations of Nikki McClure’s. A cute enough story about believing in one’s self.
Unfortunately, this was a rather forgetable book for me but I can see why people might find it fascinating. Kids will enjoy the unconventional way of reading this book!
Expect reviews for these books during Wednesday’s Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge post:
*= It was OK
**= Liked it
****= Highly Recommended
I’ll be going to San Francisco on Tuesday. I’ll be bringing Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan. I won’t be bringing my laptop with me so that should be interesting. I do have some scheduled posts.
I’m reading Michelle Knudsen’s Evil Librarian and Karen Armstrong’s Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life.
Have a great reading week!
