When I was a kid in school, every year they would have a book fair. All the students would go to the cafeteria where there would be hundreds of books displayed, all at discount prices. For just a couple of dollars, you could walk out of the cafeteria with 4-5 new books. It was pretty cool.
The best part, though, was later in the day. We would spend the rest of the day sitting in class, looking at the other books that our friends bought. We knew that when we went home we’d have the books we bought to look at, but while we were still at school we wanted to look at everyone else’s books. It was always fun seeing what interested other people.
So, today, we are going to have our own book fair. If there is a book you are reading or you’ve recently read, would you do a brief write up on it? Just a short paragraph letting us know your thoughts, good or bad.
I’ve got a book or two that I might share, but I’ll let some of you start the convo first.
