September Month in Review

Book Club
It was when I sat down to do this month in review that I realized I never did a book club posting. Then I couldn’t remember what we read, then it hit me, we read the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Romance book by C.L. Wilson and I obsessively read them all in like 2 weeks because the series was so good, but I didn’t like the first book all that much.  

I soon came to remember that we really didn’t talk about the book at our meeting, so I’m going to blame that on why I didn’t write a post. I’ll make sure I write a really good one for October.

We read the Lord of the Fading Lands by C.L. Wilson.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
