    Summer. Read. Week 5

    Do you have a bucket list like Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman’s characters in the 2007 film The Bucket List?

    With so many things to do and see in Calgary and around the world, I am inspired to add new items to my bucket list every time I visit the library.

         

    And there are lots of books, audiobooks, and DVDs on healthy living for me borrow, so that I can accomplish all my goals before I kick the bucket.

     

         

    So join the Calgary Public Library for a 9-week summer reading adventure. Each week we're diving into a new theme: explore, play, imagine, create, live, laugh, learn, grow, and… be. Together we’ll discover new books that will keep you reading all summer. We’ll post information about the weekly theme every Wednesday here on our Readers’ Nook blog and on our Facebook page.

    When you comment on our Summer.Read. Facebook posts, telling us what books or DVDs or CDs you’ve been enjoying, you’ll be entered to win great prizes. There are weekly prizes of leather-bound journals and CPL tote bags, as well as ten grand prize Kobo eReaders! You can also enter by filling out a paper ballot at your local library.

    Just read 'Sanctus', part one of a new trilogy by Simon Toyne. As soon as I finished it I was right into part two - 'The Key'. And now sadly I must wait for the as yet unfinished third installment. A great read, I have about 6 co-workers already on to it. Conspiracy lovers will find this gripping.

    Yes there's some great young adult fiction that's also a great read for adults - especially if you like dystopian stories! You may wisht to check out Veronica Roth, Moira Young, and Patrick Ness if you haven't already.

    "The Maze Runner" trilogy by James Dashner was intriguing! Eagerly awaiting the prequel to the series, "The Kill Order"! Great for both young adults and adults alike.

    Anne Tyler's books are great beach reads! If you haven't already tried Alice Hoffman, you may wish to pick up one of her books. They're great summer reads too!

    Just finished Anne Tyler's new book. I enjoy her books, although they usually explore the same theme of redemption. Easy beach reads.
