September 2016 Book Club - All Groups

For September's Back-to-School Book Club session, all of the groups met together and discussed a lot of books and themes. And then we voted on the books to read for October. Take a look at some of what we chatted about...

What was your favorite book you read over the summer? Choose just one.

-Wings of Fire: Darkstalker
-Wings of Fire: Darkstalker
-Harry Potter Book 2
-Wings of Fire: Dark Secret
-Percy Jackson: Battle of the Labyrinth
-Nancy Drew: Secret of the Old Clock
-Diary of a Wimpy Kid
-all the books I read over the summer     
-Castle in the Attic 

Is there a book coming out soon that you are looking forward to? 

-Wings of Fire
-next Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Do you tend to like series or stand-alone books? Or do you not have a preference?
-no preference

Do you think there's such a thing as "boy books" and "girl books"? If so, can you name one for me. Would you read a book that is supposedly written for the other gender?

-Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Yes, I would read them.
-I would read them.
-I wouldn't read them.

What do you hope to get out of Book Club this year? Besides snacks. :)

-People to know the lore about books. The history behind the plots of books.
-Every month, someone gets to pick the book.
-I'd like people to read the books I suggest.
-I am against scary books.

How do you want to choose the book for each month's Book Club? We have voted in the past. Does that still seem fair?

-Continue to vote.

After voting to vote (!), we chose books for October's Book Clubs. Books will be ordered through the Inter Library Loan system and be available at the Circulation Desk at Jamestown roughly 3 business days after we meet.
