November is here and with it we come to the end of another year’s Adult Reading Challenge. We appreciate everyone who signed up and read with us this year. If you signed up, but didn’t read as many books as you thought you would, or fill in as many clues on the Reading Log as you wanted to, please consider turning in your reading log anyway. We use the statistics and feedback to plan and produce the next year’s challenge. The final day to turn in the logs is Wednesday, November 30th, by 6:00pm. The finale party and awards will be held Sunday, December 11th, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. You must have turned in your Reading Log to attend the finale.
The last Thursday book club will be held Thursday, November 3rd, from 12 noon until 2:00 pm in the Community Room. There will also be a program Thursday night. Author Walter Green, will be here to discuss his book The Nashville and Decatur in the Civil War: History of an Embattled Railroad at 6:00 pm. He will be selling and signing books starting at 5:30 pm. Please make plans to join us.
National Novel Writing Month is a non-profit organization that encourages people to write and finish a novel of 50,000 words during the month of November. Several books you will find on our library shelves started life as NaNoWriMo works, such as Water for Elephants, The Night Circus, Fangirl, and Cinder. The last task for this year’s challenge is to read a novel. It doesn’t have to be one that was written during the month of November-any novel/work of fiction-will do. So, if you have that one book you read and loved, but couldn’t find a place to use it on the Challenge; this is your chance.
