There are so many great books out there, it's sometimes hard to know where to start.
The good news is, is that there is a book for every reader, and every reader a book (I didn't come up with that, the American Library Association did about a million years ago, but it still applies)
The other good news is that there are many people and now tons of websites that are dedicated to connecting people and books. Take Shelfari, for example. It's a great way of seeing what other people find interesting to read.
One of the main things that I would like to mention here is that we do not consider you a bad person if you do not finish every book you start. There are millions of books in print, and we have over 25,000 of them in our library. If it doesn't keep your interest, it's best to put it down, move on and find one that does. Many of you know that Mrs. Hestbeck, Mrs. McCormick and I enjoy nothing better than matching up kids with books that are of actual interest to them. Give us a visit and we'll see what works for you.
