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:

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!
