What the Council Reads (Part 2)

In part two of "What the Council Reads", I have five offerings for you.

First, we have Hunter who is a lover of the fantastical.  His chosen book is Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card.

Next up is one of our longest standing members, Brandi, talking about Ashes by Ilsa Bick.  I've read this book and it is awesome!

Now we have LaDonna, a second year member, with Looking for Alaska by John Green.  DFTBA! <--------- Look it up!

Here is Madison, a first year TLC member, chatting about Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld.

Last but not least is Rachel with her pick, Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan.

We have more council members, but the rest were either gone when we made these videos or simply could not keep it together in front of a camera.  I'll be pestering them for another set of these videos this month, so keep your eyes peeled!

What the Council Reads (Part 1)

Several months ago, I asked my library council to prepare some video book reviews.  What was their favorite book and what makes it their favorite?

To say they were nervous and a bit awkward is an understatement, but I did manage to coax a few gems out of them.

Here are a few:

Bree, who is new to our council this year, chose If I Stay by Gale Foreman.

Next up is Steven, a member of the council for the last 3 years.  He's a sucker for the classics, so it is no surprise that he picked The Scarlet Letter.

And finally, for today, we have Colleen, a first year member, with The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan.

I'll have more of their favorites for you next week and I'll be sure to torture them again soon by asking for what they're currently reading.

Happy Friday!
