First full day of summer!

Summer is here. It has been a long time coming but it has finally arrived. This was a long school year and having to make up 6 days at the end didn't help things. But summer is here, the Sox are winning, the Celtics are champs and I have lots of books to read. I am off to ALA next week and life is looking good.

Today's podcast is for another GSF nominee -- THE BOOK OF LIES by James Moloney.

Marcel is brought to an orphanage in the dead of night to a Wizard who wants to erase the boy’s memory. Fortunately fate intervenes and he is able to remember his name. Because of this advantage he is able to help a brother and sister at the orphanage and they are plunged in to court intrigue when they find they are related and of royal blood.
The major force in the story is the Book of Lies which reveals a speaker’s lies when he or she is near the Book. BUT THE BOOK IS RUNNING OUT OF PAGES. What will happen then… (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2008-2009)
