#bookdisplay by @aliquot with inspiration from @bkmuse7 = awesome.
Who would you like to share a book with?
Suggestions include non-specific people: a friend, your BFF, a frenemy, your bestie, etc
plus literary characters … share a book with Katniss - maybe something about survival skills? :)
I love the synergy that comes with working with a team of creative, thinking people.
Scientists may have cracked the giant Siberian crater mystery — and the news isn’t good
I love getting things ready the night before the first Harry Potter Reading Club:
robe - check
ties (one for each house, I’ll share) - check
Hogwarts t shirt - check
Bertie Botts every flavor beans (or a close facsimile) - check
Discussion questions prepared - check
Pictionary words prepped - check
Opening activities - check
Makeup stick (just one) in case anyone wants a lightning bolt scar drawn on their forehead - check
Book (audio this time) listened to for the ????? time - check
Have we received your owl?
At least we know it wasn’t aliens.
Or Goliath. Did anyone else immediately think of Scott Westerfeld’s Goliath when they saw the headlines about the crater in Siberia? Or do I just read so much that sometimes it feels like I’m living inside a book?
"Cram your head with characters and stories. Abuse your library privileges. Never stop looking at the world, and never stop reading to find out what sense other people have made of it. If people give you a hard time and tell you to get your nose out of a book, tell them you’re working. Tell them it’s research. Tell them to pipe down and leave you alone."
