Party Pix!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on March 31, 2009

The Blatant Bibliophiles met on Monday, March 30 to discuss Absolutely, Positively Not by David LaRochelle. We also ate ice cream sundaes, which added to the enjoyment of the book. Almost everyone enjoyed the book, and everyone enjoyed the ice cream. Hope you enjoy the slide show! At our next meeting next month we’ll discuss The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Stay tuned tomorrow when I’ll have the results from this year’s Peach Book Awards from the Kennesaw State University Conference on Literature for Children and Young Adults. Happy reading!

Have You Voted Yet?

Don’t forget! Today, Friday, March 13, is the LAST day to vote for your favorite 2009-2010 Peach Book Award nominee. Who’s winning so far? Well, we have votes for every nominee except one, so they’ve (almost) all been popular with our readers. I’ve read about half of them so far, and I’ve loved every one of them–these are some great books people! I’m sure we’ll get some more votes in during lunch, and our Creekview winner may not come close to being the state winner, but, so far, Impulse by Ellen Hopkins, a Creekview favorite author, has a slight lead over our Blatant Bibliophile read for this month, Absolutely, Positively Not by David LaRochelle. What else has gotten a lot of votes so far? Boot Camp by Todd Strasser, a popular “boy” author, Uglies by Scott Westerfield, another Creekview fave, and Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt.
