This morning some of the Yr 13 English and Media Studies students re-discovered the simple joy of reading to each other. It was a beautiful thing! Here they are enjoying Where's Wally, I Spy and How Things Work. Ahhh the simple pleasures.

Every year the Young Adult Library Services Association put out a list of books which have been loved by teenagers throughout the USA. All sorts of books make the list, it is always interesting to see what sort of books teeangers there like compared to what teenagers here like.
This link will take you to the list of the nominated titles in this year Teen Top Ten. These books are voted on by teenagers from all over America, voting closed on the 18 September. In the King's library I often use this list when I am buying new books. This year we already have a lot of the books on the list but you can look forward to seeing more appear in the library over the next few months.
