There is a reason that year after year mysteries continue to be some of the most popular books, movies and television shows. It’s the same reason curious souls continue to scour the wilds in search of Bigfoot and the Chupacabra, and the same reason ordinary folks travel to far off lands. Humans are hard-wired to investigate and explore. Curiosity may have killed the proverbial cat, but it’s done wonders for humankind. Nothing, it seems, motivates us like an unanswered question, a blank spot on a map, a mystery.
This year, Harris County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program’s theme is ‘Get a Clue @ the Library,’ and it’s designed to encourage you and the whole family to exercise—to indulge—that part of you that loves mysteries, craves answers, and seeks adventure! Summer Reading Fun 2012 is all about investigating books and libraries and the worlds they open up to you.
