We heard from a lot of people at the library who liked David W’s Resolutions for Readers . Now that there are only two calendar pages left in the year, we’d like to challenge you to take on a few of these resolutions, starting with the first on the list: I will re-read a book I loved as a child.
Take a trip back in time and re-read a favorite book from your childhood. It could be a title that was read to you (Hailstones & Halibut Bones) ; a title you read like a thousand times (Anne of Green Gables); or maybe take on an entire series (Chronicles of Narnia).
Your expanded horizons might just make that book much more meaningful (Where the Red Fern Grows)– or maybe make you wonder why you ever loved it in the first place. If you still love it, you’ll have a possibility for a gift for that niece or nephew.
For all the book groups out there, how about having a night where you share with each other. You’ll learn a lot about each other and find some great reads as part of the bargain.
Maybe you remember a story but try as you might just can’t remember the title … come see us at the library. We have all sorts of resources to help you rediscover a part of your childhood.
