Favorite Quotes

"A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation. Lend and borrow to the maximum -- of both books and money! But especially books, for books represent infinitely more than money. A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold."


— Henry Miller

The new kid is just like you, but it takes awhile to realize that.

Wonder

Title: Wonder
By: R.J. Palacio

Wonder is a remarkable first novel by R. J. Palacio. We have it in J Fiction, but I highly recommend it for readers of any age. Auggie - a child with severe facial deformities - is about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep after being homeschooled and protected all his life. The book is written in short journal like chapters by Auggie, his classmates, family and friends. It's hard enough to be the new kid when you are ordinary in every way, but how will it work out for Auggie who feels ordinary except for his face? This book is uplifting, emotional, lively and realistic. Enjoy it with wonder.
