Lied Lincoln Library is issuing a challenge to readers of all ages, (kids and teens included), sometime readers and would-be readers to read 26 books in 2015-16. The library will issue two challenges each month. Either post what books you have read each month on the web page or e-mail the library at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you have read. See if you will be able to complete all 26 challenges. Not only will you have the satisfaction of knowing you have met all the challenges and read 26 books, the library will also acknowledge your accomplishment with a special gift. So let’s get started!
The challenge for August is:
1. A book you own but haven’t read.
2. A book that was made into a movie.
I’ve always enjoyed books by Kristin Hannah, and her newest one, “Nightingale” is one of her best. The book is a story of two sisters growing up in an idyllic childhood in Paris. But life quickly changes when Hitler’s Nazi’s march in one day to occupy Paris. Soon hardships set in throughout France and the sisters take different paths in coping with the occupation. One soon finds herself working with the underground while the other is trying to just cope with life with her daughter and
her husband, and the hardship and dangers of living under the Nazi’s thumb. This is a book that is a hard to lay down book. If you like a historical background, along with a great story, this one is for you.
Coffee and conversation at the library today at 2:00pm! See you there!
