Dormann Library Issues Reading Challenge

At the Dormann Library, staff want to start the New Year off right with a reading themed challenge for the whole family. It was inspired by the blog: Growing Book by Book – a Guide to Nurturing Young Readers. Adult readers might need more than a week to read each challenge book, but that’s okay. There is no time limit to completing the challenge and the library is sharing it to help get folks inspired to try something new.

These are the challenges for the month of January:

Week 1 – Read a book with a color word in the title

Week 2 – Read a book by an author whose last name starts with a “W”

Week 3 – Read a non-fiction  book about winter

Week 4 – Read a book about a winter sport.

There will be books on display to make it easier to get started. Don’t forget to share on Facebook the books that you have read to meet the challenge.

Speaking of reading, the Dormann Library’s book group, “The Book Stops Here” will be meeting on Monday, Jan. 27, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. to discuss: The Happiness Project. The author, Gretchen Rubin, says that when it comes to happiness, according to research, genetics account for 50 percent, life circumstances 10-20 percent, and all the rest is up to how we think and act. Her personal happiness project consisted in focusing each month on a specific area of her life she wanted to improve. Come and share what you thought about the book and whether you have been inspired to make changes in your own life.
