“In addition to thanking my local librarian (which I did last night), I also want to tell you how much I’m enjoying the book clubs. You speak to your members as individuals, rather than as a faceless mass, and I think this may be why I’m so charmed.”
“I wanted to thank for your teen book club. When my daughter was 13, she complained that books geared to teens were all either about major crises, being a new kid, or something with vampires or aliens. I got her logged onto to your teen book club and 2 1/2 years later, she’s still enjoying it. She’s also been a teen writer three times for the book clubs and has had a ball. It’s been a safe way for her to hear from kids as far away as Australia and England. (We live in Southern California). ”
“It’s good to know that my library offers this online book club. I’m happy to see that even if I can’t visit the library often as I like, I still have the opportunity to read the books I love. Thanks so much for offering the book clubs.”
“I don’t want to sound ‘weird’, but your daily emails have enriched my life. Before the online book clubs I would wolf down my food during my lunch hour. I now take a real lunch hour and read the daily selection. I look forward to my book break every day!”
“I’m just writing to let you know how much I enjoy the online book club. You’ve become part of my morning routine. It is so nice to take a coffee break and sit down with a friend to read. Thank you for bringing those peaceful moments back into my life.”
“Thanks for making me want to read again. At one time I was an avid reader, but twenty plus years in the military, two jobs and children took up all my time, I forgot about reading. I look forward each week for a new novel, and then I go to the library so I can finish the book.”
(Children’s Librarian) Here’s a gift you helped give a young patron of mine. This young man is a very good reader, but a little picky. I managed to find a few books he thought he’d try, but nothing grabbed his interest, until I remembered a book from the Teen Book Club – The Devil’s Breath. I told him about it, and found it on our shelf, and he was thrilled! I would have never known about that book, but for the club. So, thank you!
“I think that the Teen Book Club is the best idea ever. Who ever made it up is very smart.”
