The Clarendon College Chatterbooks
Wiltshire,

Apology....
Well, James was right! He was so pleased that The Graveyard Book was chosen as this years' winner. We are all going to make the effort to read it now...

Slight bias noticed!
James really feels The Graveyard Book should win (check out our home page now!), but as no one else present at today's meeting had read it it was difficult to make an informed judgement. Three of us VERY strongly feel that Rowan the Strange has so much to offer and I don't feel James quite managed to sway us to his way of thinking. So, sorry James.

Latest meeting!
We had our latest meeting today, and tried to pick our top book. Rowan the Strange was championed, as it was such a gripping read, but The Graveyard Book and Chains were popular too. We can't wait to find out the winner!

Picking our winner...
It will be a tough choice, i'm sure! Today each of us will champion one book in the hope of persuading the others that we have picked this years' winner. So watch this space...

Read any good books lately...????
Drew is certainly ahead when it comes to reading and reviewing! If you haven't taken a look at her reviews please do so before you leave this site. If you've finished a book don't forget to post a review whilst it's fresh in your mind.

Get Reading...!!!!
Hey guys, get reviewing! Who do you think will win the prestigious crown this year? How about a poll on cheese as James is so obsessed by it... Nothing to do with reading though! Mind you i can think of a few books with cheese in the title. Have you read any?? Sorry... there seem to be two of these blogs...anybody read The Stinky Cheese Man or I am the Cheese by Robert Cormier? No, sorry xx Ellie

The best so far??
I agree, 'The Knife of Never Letting Go' does mess with your head...i'm not sure where it's going to end up, but i don't think it'll be a happy ending.

Talking of great reads...
...and past Carnegie winners...how about Junk by Melvin Burgess?? Great writing stands the test of time, and this book is as relevant and current as it was 13 years ago when it was first published. What made it so memorable for me was the brilliant discussions we had on it...remember the coffee shop? Hot chocolate, cakes and open and frank discussions on drug-taking and homelessness...guys , you were amazing!

Great read
Not in the Carnegie, but it's a book none the less. People of the world, there are two books i STRONGLY recommend. (1): Shade's Children by Garth Nix - "Shade's Children takes place in a not-so-distant future where evil Overlords have ruled for fifteen years due to a catastrophic "Change" which caused all people over the age of fourteen to simply disappear." (2): Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams -"The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy is a comedy science fiction book, set in modern times after the Earth has been destroyed in order to make way for a hyperspace bypass."

Can't Wait!!!
Hey guys...i can't wait to read 'The knife of never letting go'. I have a feeling it's going to be one of those books you can't put down and possibly a winner. I'm reading 'Cosmic' at the moment...it's funny and it's about a boy who pretends to be a man...stranger things have happened, especially in fiction! It has a real feel-good factor; much needed after some of the dark, foreboding books we have read in past years... Mrs L :)

OOOOOOOOOHH
It's amazing what a book can do with your head. reading 'The knife of never letting go' and it's amazing how it can twist with your head I mean when I first saw HER i was almost in as much shock as Todd... (only those who read the book will understand :P)
