Jim and our friend Greg are working on the bathroom renovation this afternoon, while I do various library projects like download Skype for the upcoming author visit, read the book for Tuesday’s teen book group, and make a new feltboard story for the Cat storytime. I’m really, really looking forward to the teen book group book, Demons of the Ocean by Justin Somper, and I am so glad that it’s finally time to read it. The book (and its sequels) have intrigued me since Lisa and I first ordered them for the library collection, and I’ve become even more psyched to read it since I’ve heard so much great feedback from the teen book group members. Three of the teens in the group have made a point of coming to visit me in the children’s room to tell me how much they love the book. In fact, they all have loved the book so much that they have gone on to read all of its sequels. That’s really high praise from a discriminating bunch of readers.
And now I think I’d best stop writing and start reading. I’ll let you know what my opinion of the book is once I’ve finished it.
