Book Talk Bits

Hooray! What a summer we are planning for Adults. Those with I pad, Kindle, Nooks, or other e-reader device or I phone. We are calling on you to be in the spot light sharing your book with other readers in the book talk.  All you will need to do is tell a snippet about the book you have read on your device. Do not tell all just enough to get us interested in the book. Each person attending will share their own book. We will do this on the Second Monday in June, July, and August at 2:00 PM. Don’t be shy it’s all about sharing your love for books.  We will call ourselves “The Techie Book Invaders.” Interested persons contact Gwendolyn here at the Northwest Branch Library.
