August's Group Read...

For August, we will be reading, "Looking for Alaska, " by John Green! Discussions will be on August 17th and 31st.  I do not have the book yet (waiting on the library), so I can't tell you exact chapter breakdown.  But, just assume to break it into half.

Description: Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the "Great Perhaps." Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.

Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another. A stunning debut, it marks John Green's arrival as an important new voice in contemporary fiction.

Can't wait! Who is planning on joining us?
