Reading Roundup – Week of August 10
Here’s all the reading news that’s fit to print….
A hero barber in Iowa is offering fee cuts to children who read to him. “I just want to support kids reading,” he said. If every person did just one small thing like that….magic!
Move over Alexander Hamilton. A bookstore in Los Angeles is campaigning to make Joan Didion the face of the $10 bill. What literary icon would you like to see in your wallet?
Want to feel like a real life Miss Marple? The British Library needs your help deciphering the hidden message on a 13th century sword.
Nicolas’ Sparks The Notebook will be appearing on your television soon.
We highly recommend checking out the movie version of Gillian Flynn’s Dark Places (read the book first if you haven’t already!). Starring Charlize Theron, this twisty mystery about the only surviver from a brutal attack that left her mom and two sisters dead was even better than Gone Girl. And once you watch, here are the biggest differences between the book and movie.
Until next week, happy reading!
