New Book Friday! December ’10 Edition!

This month’s New Book Friday is nowhere as epic as November’s, but trust me, these books rock.

Some fiction to while away those cold December nights:

May we offer some nonfiction?

I’ve already read Beatle Meets Destiny, and flipped through So Now You’re a Zombie: a Handbook for the Newly UndeadBeatle Meets Destiny is the story of John “Beatle” Lennon and Destiny McCartney. It’s a charming realistic fiction novel that takes place in Melbourne, Australia. If you love books about large families, falling in love, horoscopes, and interrelated story lines, this book is for you.

If you have recently been transformed into a zombie, So Now You’re a Zombie is a great little handbook on how to preserve your body and survive in this anti-zombie world. Just don’t come shambling after me.

New Book Friday – Part 1!

First Friday in November … you know what that means. New Book Friday! Today we are presenting some of the newest fiction titles to grace our shelves. We have so many additions to our shelves, that our New Book Friday will be spread out throughout the month of November. Here are some new fiction titles.

If you’re hungry for a good book – and community service hours – you can now participate in our book reviews.  Stop by the Youth Services desk (or look around the website) for the form.

Read a Book, Write a Review

Loved it? Hated it? Have no idea *what* the librarian was thinking when she ordered (insert any title here)? Thought it was so funny that you then went out and read everything else by the author? Or … you really just want those community service hours?

Wait, what? Community service hours … for reading?!!?

Here’s the deal: starting on November 1st, you can ask a Youth Services librarian for a Book Review form. You can read the latest teen fiction and non-fiction (books must be from the YA section in the library, or could be found in the YA section of a library on Long Island.  The “latest” refers to books published from 2009 to present).

Read the book. Answer a few simple questions about the book (what’s it about, how awesome is it, what was your favorite {or least favorite} part). Then, bring your form back to the library and hand it in to a Youth Services librarian.  To make everyone happy, please PRINT your first and last name on your form.  If you hand in something without your name, you cannot earn community service.

If you’re waffling about what to read, either check out our New Books Friday and click on the title (and -gasp!- the publication year will reveal itself to you!) or ask Miss Kate about the newest YA titles.
