They’re All Good! February 8, 2008

As you read this, voting will have ended for Read Together Palm Beach County.  I hope you voted, and I certainly hope you read whichever book is chosen (winning title to be announced on February 25th at noon, right out in front of the West Palm Beach Public Library at 100 Clematis Street). 

But I would actually like to encourage you to read all of the titles.  If you do, you’ll be able to experience the imaginary inner life of an autistic child who solves a mystery (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time); the true story of a gifted child growing up in a tragically dysfunctional family (The Glass Castle); the unintended consequences of a hasty but life-altering decision by a father (The Memory Keeper’s Daughter); the excitement and ambition of a young boy (and future NASA engineer) looking out to space and actually building his own rockets in a coal mining town (Rocket Boys); and the real-life uphill battle of a mountain climber to establish village schools in Pakistan (Three Cups of Tea).

Some of these books are fiction, some are nonfiction; they all are windows on worlds that we may never experience personally.  The magic of reading is that all of these worlds are available to us, at our convenience, and (let’s not forget) free of charge at your public library.

All the best from the Book Goddess!
