July Dive | Stillwater’s Deep Blue Readers Youth Book Club is Reader Choice this Month


July is Reader Choice Month for Deep Blue Readers! We’ll meet Sunday, 7/26 1:30pm at Valley Bookseller.

There’s no escaping it. Summer is well and truly here. School is a memory. Days are full of swimming, cycling the Brown’s Creek Trail, catching the latest movies (and maybe some fish), eating more ice cream than is wise or humanly possible, and hanging out with friends. Where are the fireworks?!

We’re not talking Fourth of July. We mean sparkling Summer reads that draw you deep into their pages with characters that leap to life. BFF books that seep into your skin, spark endless daydreams, and have you digging out the flashlight to read well into the night. Constant companions that make long road trips bearable, entice you with adventures on the way from here to there, or help you tune out the Summer doldrums as you escape to new worlds.

So what does that mean for book club? Reader Choice is a great time for newcomers to get their feet wet with a first dive -or- for you practiced divers to set your own direction. You choose a book that captures your imagination and bring your reactions to our get together on 7/26. Better yet, you’ll get great recommendations for other Summer books to keep you company through the hot hot days of August and beyond. The only rule? We’re choosing titles from the Middle Grade shelf.

Our very next post will be packed full of ideas to get you started! And be sure to check out the Deep Blue Readers Summer 2015 flyer (.pdf in black & white for easy printing) for August and September book club news if you want to dive ahead…
