Two posts in one day!

I found this podcast featuring Scott Westerfeld and his wife, Justine Larbalestier. They ask each other questions about their latest books, The Last Day and Magic Child. Larbalestier's triology includes Magic Lessons, Magic or Madness and Magic Child.,,0_9781595140319,00.html

Finished Peeps

I finished Peeps a few weeks ago...liked it a lot! But I'll save the discussion for our meeting. I talked to Devin B. and he LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the book! I'm sooo glad. He read the first chapter of the sequel and didn't know if he'd like it because he thought the characters are new...

Let's find out what Ms. Morris thinks because she already read the sequel...The Last Days.

Hope everyone can come to the last meeting. I believe I set the date for Wednesday May 16th during lunch. I will put this in the announcements on Monday.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

Peeps Cont.

Hello Bloggers!
I am steadily reading Peeps. It's getting pretty good. It's a bit of a vampire, mystery, love, crime type of novel. Hope you all like it. There is only one copy in our library with the cover like in my last post. The other copies I bought for the lib have different covers on them.

Hope you are reading too!

Happy Easter!

Just started reading Peeps!

Hello Cafe Library bloggers!
I just started reading Peeps by Scott Westerfeld. It's the lastest maybe the last Cafe Library book we'll read together this school year. It's about vampires...or parasite positivies...peeps. That's really all I know so far.

I'm going to promote using this blog in the summer for everyone or anyone interested in sharing what he/she reads with other LMHS students.

Read On L-Cats, Read On!
