About Perks of Being a Wallflower

Hi all,

I'm wondering whether you would be interested in purchasing your own copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The problem is that I cannot keep purchasing sets of books especially when other high school libraries already have their own copies and, therefore, reselling them to offset the cost is unlikely. That is the case with Perks.

I can get softcover for $11.19 + tax  or hardcover for $16.60 + tax.

Let me know whatcha think.

Mr. F

Thanks for a great meeting


Hi all,

Thanks for a good discussion today. Here's what we decided:
  • discuss Cloud Atlas at the December meeting
  • read Perks of Being a Wallflower over Christmas
  • add a meeting in early January, 2013, to discus Wallflower. I would suggest the Monday we get back since the seminar room is already booked for Grad Photos 10, 11 & 14.
Let me know watcha think of the plan.

Kudos and thanks to Celise for cleaning up after the meeting.

Books we want to read!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chobsky -  is that right?

Book idea

Hi folks!

I am hoping to read the novel Cloud Atlas before it comes out in film in the late fall.  It's a science fiction novel... getting amazing reviews.

Welcome!

Hi all,

Thanks for dropping by. I'm hoping that we can develop a dialogue here or in another spot as Celise suggested. For now, use the blog to add some suggestions of titles you'd like us to read this year. I'm not making any promises, it will depend on what's available, but this is a good place to start. So, blog away.
