Double Up On Summer Entertainment

CoralineIf you and your friends are enjoying what’s on offer at the cinema this summer, why not stop by your local library and borrow the books that inspired some of the best movies this year? You will find copies of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Coraline at the library, and if you’re a Hannah Montana fan you might like to read Miles to Go. In her book, Miley Cyrus gives the reader an account of her life up to now that’s both entertaining and sometimes quite sad. Read about how she coped with growing up with a famous dad, her school experiences which I’m sure are not all that different from your own, and about how she came to be where she is today. There’s no shortage of Harry Potter books to choose from at your local library and with the current showing of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, now might be as good a time as any to begin reading all seven in the series. Don’t forget The Tales of Beedle the Bard also by JK Rowling and if you’ve already read all these, check out Clare County Library’s extensive collection of fantasy novels that may be just what you need to fill the void since the final Harry Potter book was published. Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book was one of last year’s biggest publishing successes. Coraline, written by the same author is also well worth reading if you like to explore family situations that are just a bit different from the norm. Reading the stories behind these movies will bring an added dimension to your appreciation of them so why not double up on the enjoyment this summer. Popcorn goes just as well with a good read!
