Today's Post Is Brought to You by the Letter....

Bev over at My Reader's Block participated in this chain-meme which was started by Simon at Stuck in a Book. Bev shared Simon's description of the meme and I'll share that here too!
Here's something that should be fun - and do get involved in the comment section! - I'm going to kick off a meme where we say our favourite book, author, song, film, and object beginning with a particular letter. And that letter will be randomly assigned to you by me, via random.org. If you'd like to join in, comment in the comment section and I'll tell you your letter! (And then, of course, the chain can keep going on your blog.)

Bev gave me the letter:

Favorite Book:
I took at look at my Goodreads list of read books and looked at the 5 and 4 stared books that started with 'W' and there were a lot of good ones, but the one I chose for this meme was the one book that was different from all the others. Brian Selznick combines two stories, one written out the other told only through pictures, to create a fantastic and engaging story.

Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick


Favorite Author:
There are a number of author's I love that have their last names that start with 'W', I chose the author who had more books on my Goodread's list. I just love her Black Dagger Brotherhood series, when a new book comes out I drop everything else to read it!


Favorite Song:
Again, so many to chose from, but being a Jersey girl, I feel I could only pick a song from Bon Jovi so here's my pick:



Favorite Film:
There are so many good movies to pick from but when I saw this one on the list of movies that start with 'w' I just had to pick it, I pretty much will stop and watch it whenever I see it on TV.

 

Favorite Object:

Does wine count as an object? Cause it was the first thing that popped into my head when I tried to think of something for this category. I like a lot of things that begin with 'w' but I really like wine.

To play along you can comment here, over at My Reader's Block, or over at Stuck in a Book!

    Wonderstruck does look like an interesting way to tell a story. Thanks so much for joining in!

  2. It is a great style, he also wrote the Invention of Hugo Cabret which was written in a similar style.

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:

In the Hot Zone by Kevin SitesNight by Elie WieselTom Clancy's Ghost Recon by Daivd MichaelsMacbeth by ShakespearA Million Little Pieces by James FreyWolf Hall by Hilary MantelAn Inconvenient Truth by Al GoreUnder the Dome by Stephen KingLawless by Nora RobertsThe Sinatra Files by Tom KuntzThe Help by Kathryn StockettThe Dante Club by Matthew PearlFord County by John GrishamThe Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel BarberyThe Postmistress by Sarah BlakeA Beautiful Mind by Sylvia NasarHide & Seek by James PattersonA Vintage Affair by Isabel WolfGorgeous East by Robert Girardi Most of these books were ones that I either had read or wanted to read. But…

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!

The Marked Men series by Jay Crownover



Real series by Katy Evans



Vintage by Susan Gloss



I Love This Bar by Carolyn Brown

Guest Post - The Power of the Written Word

While I am recovering from the stress of writing a final paper, new author, Gerald Freeman, has written a guest post.  His new book "Kill Daddy" is available as a ebook on Amazon.

THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD VERSUS THE POWER OF THE UNSPOKEN WORD
The main objective for anyone involved in the arts is to get their message across, and everything revolves around the efficacy. Artists want to communicate with people, share ideas, passions and experiences. For many of us, the inspiration is life.

I have spent the last 20 years focusing on sculpture and writing, both mediums through which I hope to inspire and share my ideas about us and our role on this planet. I spent 10 years working on my technique in both areas, and a few years ago, I felt ready to put my work out there. I began with sculpture and have been very lucky. I have held some great exhibitions and my work has found a home in many parts of the world. Like writing, it is a gradual process and will take the time it tak…
