Are you a Blatant Bibliophile?

Posted by grizzlymedia on September 5, 2007


Do you love books? Do you have difficulty stopping yourself from telling everyone about the books you read? Then you may be a Blatant Bibliophile. Some of the activities we are thinking of for this year are read-ins, club readings of specific books, posting book reviews on our book club blog, creating podcasts of book reviews, promoting Teen Read Week, hosting author visits to Creekview, holding media center fundraisers, and participating in writing activities. What are some of your ideas for Blatant Bibliophile activities? Did I mention food?
