Hello and welcome to the blog of the Riverbend Schools’ Bookclub. Our bookclub, made up of enthusiastic primary and secondary teacher-librarians, meets the third Thursday of the month at Riverbend Books at Bulimba. Each month our members are given two titles to choose from in advance and we read the book that has the most votes. As we believe one of the purposes of bookclubs is to extend (or, with some titles, push) us out of our comfort zone we have been looking at a great range of fiction this year. Keep watching this space as each month I post our discussions and also some links to other information related to Young Adult and Children’s fiction that I find of interest. We have been meeting since March 2013 so there is a lot to catch up on – I hope you also enjoy reading about the books and our observations as much as we enjoy reading them.
Happy Reading – Pauline (Children’s Literature Specialist – Riverbend Books)
