Looks like your school library actually has good books?! At all the schools I've been to, the libraries are really bad and they only have good children's books, and even then they order them like a year after they're released.

My school library allows us to write the books that we want them to order. I asked for The Selection around the start of June and came mid-July.

That's cool. :D Our school library used to have that, but they only looked at some suggestions, and even then they only bought the "age appropriate" books. This year, they haven't even bothered to put the suggestions sheet up. Our public library allows that though, and it's really cool. :)

I'm not sure if my public library allows suggestions, I'm pretty sure they do but I don't use it personally. My school started a book club and they are encouraging us to read different types of books, but they do still have to be "age-appropriate" as we are using the school's money to buy it.

:D the definition of "age-appropriate" though... For us, it's like "no violence, no romance," so pretty much just plain boring. We have some good books, but we never have the complete series.

Most of our books does have a bit of violence or romance but not that much. What kind of books does your school library have?

Some Harry Potter, I think Inkheart by Cornelia Funke but not the rest of the series; Eragon, and besides that I think there's not really any good books, but I haven't done a proper check in ages.

Same. One disc into season two and already liking it a lot more than season one, which I liked a lot. How'd I miss this show while it was airing haha?
