Quick note about an idea I had this weekend while camping at the beach. If you think about it this summer, please try to take a picture of your summer reading that captures either the place you're reading it or the reader enjoying it. I have one I'll be posting as soon as I download it from my camera to spark your creative ideas. I may be asking for those pics when we return to school to post to a bulletin board somewhere.

I have attached (to the best of my ability) what I hope to be an easy way of tracking down someone you want to share a book with. In about two weeks, I'll be taking those names off the book list so that you aren't barraged with phone calls about borrowing a book you've already sent on its merry way. I've heard good feedback so far. Its such a nice feeling to match books with readers. The next item on my agenda is to add email addresses to the list of allowed posters. This will enable you or your kids to post to the blog about the books they've read or want to read.

Thanks to everyone who was able to make the meeting on Monday morning. Its great to see so many interested parents. I'm excited for all the great summer reading I know your kids will be doing. Hopefully tomorrow, I will post the list of who has which book. In my annual effort to improve the program, I'm hoping this will aid the first round of sharing.
I've just received word that one book has been finished and "Roxie and the Hooligans" is on its way to a handpicked friend. Ahhh....the sweet sound of success.
Looking forward to seeing your opinions about the books that went home.
