About This Summer Reading Program

Welcome to the Woodridge Public Library’s 2014 Adult Summer Reading Program!

Our theme this year, Literary Elements, gives you an opportunity to read about science-—math and astronomy, for example, or gardening and minerals.

Log each book you read or listen to here. Each book is an entry in the weekly drawings.

What counts as a book? Just about anything, but there are some restrictions. Cookbooks do not count, and neither do how-to manuals, travel guides, textbooks, magazines, or children’s books. Any format works, though—books, audio books, or e-books.

Please count only books that you have checked out or downloaded from the Library and that you have read from June 2 through July 26.

Enter as many times as you like. The more you read the more chances you will have of winning a prize.

Review
I'm not sure how to describe this book. It is fascinating. Imagine that you have stumbled upon a book called Ship of Theseus by VM Straka. And as you are paging through the book, you see that the margins are just FILLED with scribbled notes from two people. The two main characters are communicating via margin notes, both of them helping to unlock a mystery about the book''s author. It feels so genuine. The "ink" in the margins look real, there are postcards, a map drawn on a napkin, letters tucked into the pages. You really feel like you've stumbled upon someone else's mystery. A bit confusing in the sense of "do I read the book?" or "do I read the margins?" and I ended up doing a hybrid of the two. Definitely worth a look!

This is Terkel's homage to his city--the bad as well as the good, but more importantly, the characters that he remembered and those he interviewed.
