We did 5 booktalk sessions today at the high school for 9th and 10th grade Language Arts classes. I wrote "tweets" (less than 140 characters) for most of the books. It was so much fun discussing them with the students and finding just the right book for each person. Even the zombie books were snapped up.
We have checked out 667 books district wide in the last 3 days.
This is the first year we have were ready to circulate on the first day of school.
It's going to be a great year.
