Group status: Reading...shhh...
A new group... The books have arrived....Happy readers! Only a few have completed the Carnegie Challenge before, so for most this is our first time! We meet once a week in the library to discuss the books and share our thoughts (and sometimes our sweets!). We are hoping for many lively debates in the weeks to come!
