2011 Reading Challenge

Are you an avid reader?  Consider joining the 2011 Reading Challenge sponsored by Goodreads.  See how many books you can read and enjoy by the end of the year...

Currently, there are 97,742 people taking the challenge and the average goal for participants is 70 books.  Those are some impressive numbers!

Advanced Reader Copies are in!

The Somerville, MA-based Candlewick Press, a phenomenal publisher of children's and young adult literature has been kind enough to send us several advanced reader copies of titles soon to be released.  This is a great way to preview new books before they hit bookstore shelves.  Please see Mrs. Fournier if you would be interested in reviewing one of the latest titles for the UHS library blog.  Reviews can be short and simple, just a little blurb to indicate what you thought of the book is fine.  But if you'd like to write more, that is great too - the UHS community would love to hear your impressions!

Random House has also released their Books for Summer Reading List.  There is something for everyone on this list.  Check out some great book blurbs and decide what you want to add to your "to-be-read" list...summer usually means lots of beach time - don't forget to pack a great book in that beach bag.
