New this year, we’re seeking a group of expert readers to form a Book Squad to help us get good books into the right hands. Join our edmodo group with the code zdwrij. (And start thinking of a better name than Book Squad!)
Our first contest of the year will be a survey on the Best Books Ever. Take it in the library on paper or online.
My biggest book geek moment of the summer? Taking my kids to see the Darkest Minds movie (which was pretty good) and catching the trailer for Mortal Engines! Philip Reeves’ novel was a swashbuckling adventure based on a ridiculous premise (roving, predator cities hunting each other in a postapocalytpic wasteland) with unforgettable characters like Hester Shaw, Tom Natsworthy and Anna Fang. And the people who brought Middle Earth alive are making it, so there’s a good chance they won’t totally mess it up! We’ll know for sure in December, but read the book first!
