We need all book suggestions by the April 26 meeting when we will vote. We like to have choices from classics, non-fiction, biography or memoir, and any kind of fiction. Please post suggestions here or send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks

What a difference a day can make. Yesterday I could hardly breathe at the Information Desk (it was so busy); today we have had our first real snow of the season and I am waiting to help someone, anyone!
Speaking of waiting, I am waiting for someone to comment on this blog. I was crazy excited about creating it so, of course, I believed everyone else would be thrilled to participate. But not a soul has liked, commented, or contributed yet.
When I’m reading and thinking about writing, stories, and characters, I want to share what interests me or things I think other people might enjoy knowing (and may not have the time or desire to seek out). Anyway, I am still waiting and hoping that someone will someday discover this blog and get as excited about it as I am. Until that day, I will happily record my thoughts and items that interest me and live in hope that someone will eventually share my enthusiasm. What a great day that will be!
The Book Thief is the 2012 CNY Reads selection for 2012. The kick-off event will be held at the Erie Boulevard Barnes and Noble on Thursday night, January 12 at 7 p.m.
Local celebrities will be reading out loud from the book. County Executive Joanie Mahoney, news reporter Chris McGrath, local actor Frank Fiumano, and others will each take a turn. Chocolate and live accordion music (accordion playing relates to the book) are also part of the evening.
The Book Thief has been very popular with both adult and YA readers and the Klatch participants read it as one of our selections last year.
In case you read the book and are interested, After Dinner Books, also at the Liverpool Public library, will be discussing the book with the author! On April 5, author Markus Zusak will be beamed into the Carman Community Room via Skype to talk with us. He will be coming to us live from Australia. Check the Events Calendar at LPL.org or use the link below.
It’s a snowy day here in Syracuse. The first we’ve had so far this season. The sun is shining and it is just gorgeous.
I wanted you to know that not just Book Klatch participants, but everyone who loves books and reading are invited to join us on this book discussion blog. Anything you want to share that will add to our reading knowledge and enjoyment will be greatly appreciated. I have made several categories for articles: Authors, Titles, and the names of the books we will read each month in Klatch. So, hopefully, we can get discussion going in an organized manner.
I’m new at this so be patient with me and give me feedback about how it is working. So excited and hoping you are too.
