WWAR (What Would Avengers Read)?

Have you seen Avengers yet? By all accounts (especially according to ticket sales and those old fashioned box office votes known as ticket money) this movie is amazing and it is breaking records left and right! To make the movie even COOLER Joss Whedon wrote it! You may know him from such coolness as Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Toy Story, Serenity, X-Men and…need I go on? He is stinking cool. period.

I was also super stoked to see this post on The Hub this week….Maria Kramer took her super powers of library science to make you an Avengers’ Reading List! As in WWAR (What Would Avengers Read)?

Sure, the Avengers have been taking names and smashing box office records, but here’s the big question: what would members of this superteam read in their free time? Wonder no more!

She took each character and picked out a book for him/her based on that hero’s interests, personality and ability. Cleversauce!

So read the post, pick your favorite character and then check out his/her book.  Then you can let me know what you think! Was it a good match? What book would you choose for your favorite hero?




It’s a Transformation! Teen ARC Club –> Beta Books

Those of you who have visited our Teen ARC Club have probably heard the news — we’re changing the name! We voted and chose democratically: beginning in June, this group will be known as Beta Books. New name; same great flavor! Not to worry — we’ll still be reading and sharing ARCs (that’s Advanced Reading Copies — preview copies of books that haven’t yet been published!). We’ll meet 4-5 pm in the Activity Center on these days:

Friday, May 25

Wed, June 27

Wed, July 25

Wed, August 22

If you can’t make it to a meeting, never fear! You can sign out a book from the Teen Center at any time, and share your thoughts online. (However, the meetings are pretty hilar. I would recommend stopping by for the laughs and snacks if nothing else…)

Here’s our latest review from reader Maddie (thanks, Maddie!). The book is now out, so you can reserve it:

Title: Hourglass

Author: Myra McEntire

What did you think of the book? I liked everything about the book. It was well written with few if no mistakes, easy to read, and went by fast. My favorite part was when they went back in time to save the professor. I would recommend it to a friend.

How would you rate this book? 5 stars – Unbelievable! I’d rather read this book than sleep!

What did you think of the cover? I think the cover fit the book well. It showed how she’s coming from one place to the other. In my opinion, I’d like it if it showed both where shes going and where she’s coming out of.
