Live Oak Summer Reading Program info

I was at the Southwest Chatham Library the other day and picked up some information on the Summer Reading Program and thought I would share with you what I found! The goal of the program is to keep children reading throughout the summer -- whether it's books from their home or from school reading lists.

Practically Free Books!

I love books. I love bargains. I love www.paperbackswap.com.

Give a book, get a book it's that simple. I posted 10 books I don't care to give away (all in good condition) and received 2 free credits. Each book is worth a credit. People asked for my books and I mailed them out. I asked other people for their books and they mailed them to me.

The most money I've spent on postage is $3 and the least I've spent is $1.78. I can even pay for the postage online and print it from my computer to save a trip to the post office.

Books for the Beach

It's time to pick  a  paperback for under the beach umbrella...

I usually like book recommendation lists like this:  http://bestsellers.about.com/od/readingrecommendations/tp/top_beach_book.htm

but nothing beats a good recommendation...got any?
