I have been sick as a dog for the past week, and I’ve missed two story time sessions, which has just broken my heart! I miss my little ones so much!
I’m going absolutely stir crazy sitting around the house, coughing and feeling quite sorry for myself.
I though I’d share another aspect of the teen fiction display that my colleague and I have been working on. The teen section is a never-ending work in progress – the shelves are always crammed to the point of bursting, requiring almost constant weeding. To add a bit of visual interest, and maybe encourage some teens to try new reading material, my colleague printed out these “teen books we like” bookmarks, which we’ve been putting in books throughout the teen section.
My colleague and I have very different taste in reading material, which is great, because it means there’s always a great variety in the kinds of books we highlight. Some of the teen books I marked this time around were “Such Wicked Intent” by Kenneth Oppel (yay Canadian content!), “Terrier” by Tamora Pierce (girl power!) and “The Knife of Never Letting Go” by Patrick Ness. My colleague tends to prefer more realistic fiction, so between the two of us, there’s a great bunch of books on offer.
The book marks look pretty snazzy sticking out of the books, dotted throughout the stacks.
