We are so excited for you to start an independent reading project! This is an amazing opportunity to have CHOICE in what you decide to read. Have fun with this– read more of a favorite author or genre OR mix it up by trying something completely new.
The amount of enjoyment you get out of this experience is DIRECTLY related to how much you are enjoying your book. We want to help you find one that sounds good, not force you to just grab a poor random book off the shelf that you don’t even think sounds interesting.
Below you will find a collection of book suggestions to help you get started! Have questions, want a book recommendation, just want to say hi? Send Ms. Mac an email firstname.lastname@example.org
Ms. Mac’s Video Book Talks
Listen to me talk about five popular favorites (and laugh at how awkward I am on camera!)
Each video book talk is followed by a list of five similar titles that you might also enjoy. Clicking on the title link will take you to the online library catalog, Destiny, where you can read more about the book. If you like the book and want to put it on hold simply click the “Login” button in the book description, login using your school username and password, and then press “Hold.” Boom, you’re done!
