Summer Reading - Not Just For Kids!

Hi All!

It's about that time! Time for summer reading! And the Alexander County Library and Bethlehem branch are currently signing up anyone who wants to be a part of it all. Anyone, you say? Why, yes! Even adults.

Not only can youth ages birth to 18 sign up at either library location, but so can adults. Bethlehem Reads the Classics is in its third year of reading classic novels and reporting pages read. It is appropriate for teens and adults.

Miss Mel has participated each year and loved diving back into classic works (though Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury wasn't as thrilling as my AP English teacher made it out to be a hundred years ago! Thanks, Mr. Williams! Too bad I didn't have you around last summer to re-explain a few things!)

But, reading Little Women made me fall in love with the March sisters all over again. And being a TwiHard, I have to read Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice, and Romeo and Juliet to see what all the fuss is about for Bella. It's been a zillion years since I read those!

So, teens! Sign up with me and with Bethlehem Reads the Classics. We'll all have a grand old time this summer READING!
