New Video!
So as I scoured the internet for a new video for our home page, I came across a parody of "I gotta feelin'" by The Black Eyed Peas.
It's called "Gotta keep reading" and is, well, about reading!
Please check it out if you are interested, it can be found on the home page

Star Review of the Week!
As you may have noticed, three reviews have been posted on the website! If you didn't, check the previous blog post.
Out of these 3 reviews I think Jules' review of the book 'Wonder' was the best because of the detail and enthusiasm, so I put it in the Star Review section!
Please check all of them out and maybe even read the book - you never know, you may enjoy it as much as they did!

New Video!
Hello everyone!
I have just posted a new video on the frontpage of the website - about JK Rowling.
I chose to post this because our english, performing arts, media and languages faculty is named after the writer herself!
Please enjoy, it is a brief biography about her life and writing which is about 4 minutes long, so if you are interested please have a look.

Welcome Back!
It's 2013 and our Page Turners are getting busy reading and writing for your pleasure - and theirs!
We have a wide variety of books which have been selected for the shortlist this year, which is very exciting.
Reviews are yet to come, but for now you can vote on our poll and have a look at the authors who have written some of these books.

Happy Reading!

False Start
Well not the best start to our shadowing site this year with only one person posting in our poll and our video and pictures going a bit pear shaped! We are going to try and sort it as soon as possible. In the meantime we will be launching a new poll and hopefully this one will be more successful than last time.
