I've never done a blog before. I used to post a lot on a football fans' forum, but that was easy. I had plenty of opinions and there were always lots of people to discuss things with. So I'm hoping some of you will post comments and give me something to bounce off here. If it's just random stuff out of my head it may be a bit of a struggle. It'll be much better for all of us if it's less about me and more about you.
As always there are some new titles in the library. You can see a selection of them here.
As well as Naruto 61, I've also added a few classic mangas to expand the Graphic section.
Not so new, but a book that's caught the attention of a few people recently, is The Weight of Water by Sara Crossan, which has been nominated for the Carnegie Award. It's the story of a Polish girl who comes to Britain with her mother - a story of outsiders, bullying, friendship and swimming. Written in verse, it's a quick and deceptively simple read which is very easy to relate to.
The new timetable has begun and I'm looking forward to welcoming classes to the library between now and the end of term, especially from History.
After that I'll be spending time in the holidays getting seriously ready for The Move.
Summer holiday reading
Some of the best books I've ever read were books I took on holiday. Like the one mentioned in The Shawshank Redemption:
"The Count of Monte Crisco. By Alexandree Dumbass."
"Dumbass? Dumas. You know what that's about? You'll like it, it's about a prison break."
The Count of Monte Cristo is about that and a whole lot more, and it's a fantastic book.
Do you know what you'll be reading this summer? Something that's just out? Something old you've always wanted to read? Post a comment here and pass on an idea to the rest of us.
