What Sally’s Reading

Mockingjay!
The third and final book in the Hunger Games series will be out on August 24, 2010 and Scholastic is promoting it with some give-aways. They are holding a Hunger Games 13 District Tour; you are invited to visit 13 different blogs, each on a certain date, and register to try to win some terrific prizes. Visit Scholastic’s blog to learn about the sites and get started on your tour of the 13 Districts. I hope some Nebraska libraries win prizes!
I picked up a library copy of Sucks to Be Me by Kimberly Pauley, inspired by the contest won by Lindsey and Gordon (see my blog posting of 7/23/10). Mina is 16 and a junior in high school. Her parents are vampires, but they have regular jobs and serve regular food at dinner time. Mina finds out she must attend vampire lessons twice a week for a month, and then she’ll have to decide if she wants to remain human or become a vampire. Great fun so far!
(The Nebraska Library Commission receives free copies of children’s and young adult books for review from a number of publishers. After review, the books are distributed free to Nebraska school and public libraries.)
