I hope many of you are reading the Breakfast Serial, Reading the Sky in the Centre Daily Times. It started me looking at the sky and realizing what a beautiful sky we have in Centre County. Almost every day we have big fluffy clouds and, when it rains, we have big fluffy dark clouds. Anyway, back to the story, if you haven't been reading it and want to catch up, we have a hard copy of the story at Schlow Library. If you are reading it, I hope they catch up to that little girl soon! Let me know if you like it. If you do, try other books by Avi.
As I said before, I found a few other books with "clouds" in the titles, so I decided to read those. Clouds Without Rain is an Amish mystery that starts with a tragic truck/buggy accident. Of course, all is not what it seems and is sorted out in the end.
I also started The Theory of Clouds. I like this because it has an interesting back story about the first person, Luke Howard, who classified clouds the way we do today with cumulus, stratus and cirrus designations. I like it when a book takes me into new fields and I get to learn more about them. Sometimes I just read with my computer next to me so I can find out more about the subject.
Summer Reading is in full swing. Join a program (for children, teens or adults) at your local library or get some paperbacks at your local bookstore. Books are still your most portable entertainment and they don't require batteries!
