Library Half Price Book Fair( and suggestions for reading)
Many thanks to all who supported the highly successful Library Half Price Book Fair. The book orders are now here.
It was ran as an Apprentice style challenge by the Year 12 Economic students who sold £675.34 and was a useful “real life” business experience for them. Well done to the Cupcake Monday team, led by Ellie Brown, who won the challenge. The Book Fair also gave an opportunity for the library to select new books for the library, including Monster by Michael Grant, a follow on to the Gone series ; Moonrise, an older read, by the popular author Sarah Crossan and the graphic novel the Adventures of John Blake by Philip Pullman . 1984 by George Orwell sold the most copies; other bestsellers included the emotional but uplifting Wonder by R.J Palacio and comic Bad Dad by David Walliams.
The library also has a copy of the brilliant, imaginative latest children’s book La Belle Savuage by Philip Pullman, which can be read before his Northern Lights series.
