Hi everyone! We're bringing back our long-forgotten Goodreads group as part of our 2017 adult summer reading program. We hope you all will follow along and share what you're reading this summer with us. More information to come....
Thanks,
Julia

Jonathan Karmel | 3 comments Reading author Michel Houellebecq (in English) at the moment. I recommend this author only if you are interested in books that are written from an unabashed male point of view. Please feel free to check out any of my goodreads reviews, which are all public.

I'm excited too, I actually met Mirkat through the adult Goodreads group and follow her reviews on Goodreads daily! Love making connections with bookish people.

If you haven't already jumped on and have an Instagram or Twitter account, try the June #riotgrams challenge. Each day you post a different picture based on the prompt.

Mirkat | 209 comments That evening was such a fun wrap-up to our summer reading that year, Alicia! I hope the library does some similar activities this year. :)

We will be having another wrap up party this year! Once we officially get underway with the program, I will post more details, but here is the plan in a nutshell:
The wrap-up party will be an ice cream social at the Delaware branch on Tuesday, August 22 from 6:30-8:00 PM with live music and general socializing. The Farmer's Market will be taking place in the branch parking lot too that evening as well.

Thanks for joining us again, Alicia! Making connections with fellow readers is exactly what we are hoping will be the outcome of this group.

Good call on the June #riotgrams challenge! Who doesn't love a reading/book related challenge?

That sounds like fun! Little request for the ice cream social: please include vegan options. So Delicious makes wonderful vegan ice creams, and now Ben & Jerry even makes some vegan flavors. :)

Missed it last year. Have it on my calendar now, and looks like I am available! Looking forward to it.
