PLEASE TRY TO BE THERE TO DISCUSS HOW WE'LL BE PRESENTING TITLES FOR 2010.
IF YOU'RE PLANNING TO BRING A SNACK - WRITE IT HERE - THANKS, CASEY


I will attend. Do you guys have Turkey Hill iced tea in your area? I can either bring that or chicken salad. Tricia
I am looking forward to being there and will bring fruit. Erika
I will come with quiche! :-) Mary S.
I will be there and I will bring something sweet to eat. - Jill
Can't wait! I will be bringing a big salad with a few dressings. -Jenni
I can bring bagels, will two dozen be enough? Sandy K.

I'll be there, and I'll bring cream cheese and other spreads for the bagels. Michelle
Hi, Guys. I know I'll see some of you tomorrow, but I have have some sad news to share. I received a letter
today informing me that my position is being cut. Fortunately for me personally, I am retiring, but it is a
tragedy, nevertheless. How are you all faring? Tricia


Tricia, I am so sorry. We'll all talk tomorrow. Thank you all for your generous spirit! I'll have coffee and shop for something else not covered. Looking forward to seeing you all! And hugging Tricia. (joyce)

2010 Theme Brainstorm2010 Theme BrainstormLet's shake things up a little this year. Thanks to everyone for started the lists!

When you decide on the fiction you will be reading, I would like everyone to send me a PPT slide with covers of the books. (Jason will be bringing a projector.) If possible, create a link on the slide to a trailer, if you find one.

Also, let's limit the fiction this year to the very best. We never have time to focus on nonfiction or reference. I am thinking also of an Animoto of the top ref and nonfiction. What do you think?

Theme anyone????

I just posted booklists on the review page so we can see if we miss any critical titles! (joyce)

I love this idea, and you're correct - it will shake things up a bit and add something new and fresh. I put some theme ideas on the Brainstorm page, but your idea lends itself to a more original theme. I'll keep thinking. Tricia

Thanks for posting the list. One of my boxes of books got lost in the mail, so I've been worried that some top books won't get reviewed.
Tricia

I would be happy to read pick up a few books on the top YA list if no one else has them. As I mentioned, one of my packages never arrived, and I only have a few that are truly stellar. Is anyone reading any of the following: (Nonfiction)Charles and Emma, Chasing Lincoln's Killer, Claudette Colvin or (Fiction) A Brief History of Montmaray, Crossing Stones, Solace of the Road ? I definitely don't want to step on anyone's toes, so if anyone does have them, that's great; however, if anyone knows of any top books that are NOT being covered, I will gladly read one or more. Tricia

I will be glad to send the cover for Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side. I am assuming someone else is doing Catching Fire. I am still reading. The non-fiction I got was great, but not much fiction, and Jessica is the best of what i have read.

Pat

NOTE: I copied this info over to the 2010 Theme Brainstorm page so that all would find it! :-) (Mary S)
Thanks Mary! (BJ Neary)
