Congrats to our First Quarter Prize Winners

Hamilton students have the opportunity to read books and vote for prizes.  Each year, the Indiana Library Federation organization AISLE has a group of teachers who select a group of titles to have students in Indiana rank for the honor of the Eliot Rosewater award and the Young Hoosier Book Award.  At Hamilton, we have a special prize package to honor the readers of these books.   How can you win?   Read the book, rank it from 1-5 and drop your vote into the bucket at Mrs. Wells' desk and at the end of the quarter, she (*or someone secret...shhhh) will draw three or four names to win special prizes.   We have Books, coupons and some other special treats.   Make sure you read the books and rank them.  If you do, you could be a lucky winner like these four:


This October: The Zombies are coming!

Welcome to the Morgue:  It's Walking Dead in Here.
We decided in honor of the month of October that our theme for the month will be ZOMBIES.  There are so many good zombie books out there now that we think our students will enjoy some of the new titles.

We have spent the last few days collecting the best and making them available to you. Be sure to stop in, you might be surprised by something.

Zombie books are one of the genre we have available in the learning commons.  We don't have a lot of titles, but student request has made the collection develop more and we are finding more titles are being added.

Here are a few titles we have pulled for you Zombie Fans... or those who are curious about Zombies:

Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter and its sequel Through the Zombie Glass.  Both of these sound super intriguing to Mrs. Wells also.  She even has a copy to give away at the book fair!

Zombie Blondes by Brian James.  Now, Mrs. Wells hasn't read this, but based on the number of times it has been checked out, it must be good.

The Benny Imura Series: Rot and Ruin/ Dust and Decay/ Flesh and Bone/ Fire and Ash by Jonathan Mayberry.   Mrs. Wells and Mrs. Nusbaum have noticed several holds on this series.  It seems that friends are making recommendations? We have the first three books and the fourth one is getting ordered.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies The name alone is a draw!  It sounds fascinating. How could you not want to read a book about Zombies with a Jane Austen theme?   There are a few other books that go with this series available in the learning commons.  Some of them look just as intriguing.

Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Ashley Ashby

You are so Undead to Me by Stacey Jay. This is a series that seems to be pretty popular with the girls. But, that doesn't mean a boy couldn't read it too!

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black.  The author alone makes this a recommended read.  Mrs. Wells has read rave reviews about the book and it has landed itself at the top of her To Be Read list.

Never Slow Dance with a Zombie by Ehrich Van Lowe. The title seems interesting, and it appears that it could be a quick read.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth Trilogy by Carrie Ryan.  How could you not love a series with dead people??? I mean really:  AWESOME!

This list is just the beginning of the titles we have ready and waiting for you in the Zombie of the Month Collection.  Stop in, put a book on hold, email us.  We can recommend a title or find one. Zombie books are awesome!
