Win an autographed book! Write a review of any book you’ve recently read, for a chance to WIN an autographed copy of Libba Bray’s new book, The Diviners. Plus a bonus: choose either a fedora hat or a feathered headband! (since the book is set in the 1920's, you'll look jazzy in these accessories!)
If you entered our summer Photo Contest, please remember to come pick up your photo entries this week or early next week. (we're closed on Sunday and Monday for Labor Day.) Any photos not picked up by Sept. 7 will be thrown away. Thanks!
Thanks to everyone who came to our end of Teen Summer Reading party, the Zombie Lock-In! We had fun playing games like Minute to Win It and on the Wii, made Zombie Barbies and talked to authors Carrie Ryan and Ilsa Bick. We also got made up to look like zombies and then danced to Michael Jackson's Thriller: take a look! And here are photos of the lock-in.
New videogames have come in! Battleship, Game of Thrones, Madagascar 3, and more, for all three formats: Wii, Playstation 3, and XBox360. Come check 'em out while they're here!
