Another "no-post" post at the end of July...

This is going to be another short post about books I can’t tell you about, being Silver Birch nominee contenders.  But since it’s the last day of July, and Harry Potter’s birthday, as well as that of my most devoted reader, it felt like I should write something.

I’ve been furiously reading children’s books and adding my comments to our committee message board, since I have less than three weeks to read the last few books on our list.  I’ve been reading books about immigration, witches  (the good kind), love and freedom, death and grieving, fairy islands, amateur sleuthing, gnomes, racism and gun violence, learning to be responsible, homosexuality, the problems with gentrification, alien gnomes, and much, much more!  It’s been a lot of fun, as some of them were really great reads that I probably would not otherwise have read, but it’s also stressful due to the encroaching deadline, and it takes away from reading my own books in the summer for fun.  Still, I enjoy being part of something bigger and participating in this wonderful reading program for kids.  

Anyway, that’s all for now.  Hopefully I’ll have more to write about after my book club meeting on Friday.  

Bye for now…
