Read this at breakfast - I always thought that I‘d read this before, but nope! For #teamslaughter I‘ll say 20pts as one story specifically relates to Halloween. #scaryscavengerhunt: scares me as my two favorites were pretty creepy (Cold as Clay and The Guests) #scarathlon #bbrc #middlegrade #lessthan120pages

Linsy Been on my TBR since my nephew recommended it! 9h
LibrarianRyan Yeahhh 9h
Sarahreadstoomuch @Linsy make sure you get the one that Stephen Gammell illustrated. He did a phenomenal job. 9h
Linsy @Sarahreadstoomuch Duly noted! 9h

Dracula | Bram Stoker

Even though I‘m #teamslaughter, I had my heart set on reading Dracula this October so I just listened to it this weekend during our epic road trip. Not terribly scary, but a more layered and developed story than I had anticipated! Really quite a good read and Simon Vance is always an amazing narrator. 5pts (I think) #scarathlon #bbrc #growup #freezerbook #readmyowndamnbooks

Franklin's Halloween | Paulette Bourgeois

@LibrarianRyan #BBRC picture book letter F - I thought I‘d start working on this section with a few books perfect for this time of year. This was a cute addition to the Franklin series - although I couldn‘t help but notice Franklin is the only animal with a name. His friends are Rabbit, Fox, Bear etc. @Librarybelle Also, maybe this counts as some points for #teamslaughter @Clwojick ?

Librarybelle Definitely perfect for this time of year! 3d
LibrarianRyan Yeahh 3d
Clwojick Yes! Halloween themed books are 20 points plus 1 point for the participation/post. 2d

I loved Wacky Wednesday! These are the books I read for the #BBRC easy reader section. Working on middle grade now!

LibrarianRyan Yeahh 3d
Avanders ... I don‘t really know what constitutes easy reader... is it one of those books with “reading level” on the cover? Or... what if it‘s not that “brand”? How do you know? 😬 2d
Chrissyreadit @Avanders I just asked the librarian to point me to that section. But I‘m going with vocabulary that can be read in a typical kindergarten ? @LibrarianRyan any definitive answer? 2d

Avanders @Chrissyreadit hmm 🤔 that makes sense. 😁 2d
LibrarianRyan @Avanders yes the ones with reading levels on the front. Each brand has its own level. Think Dick and Jane books. 2d
Avanders @LibrarianRyan awesome, got it. Thanks to you both! 😘😘 2d

A sweet ‘you can do anything‘ story about a pig who wants to fly likes the birds - he tries, fails, listens, learns, modifies.... and goes beyond!

Gorgeous pictures.

Yup!

Bright and cheerful.

I was surprised at how few #PopularTVCharacterER books my library actuallyhad. Still, pretty sure Peppa counts! #BeyondDickandJane #BBRC @LibrarianRyan @BookwormAHN

Birdsong28 Love the ep where she is learning to whistle and slams the phone down on her friend because her friend can whistle, it's so savage!!! 😂😂😂😂 3d
SleepyDragon @Birdsong28 That's also the episode in which she tells Mummy Pig that she can whistle because she is very old. Lol My favorite episodes are the ones that involve glitter, and the one where the little kids go to a soft play party. For a cartoon with animals, it portrays parenting rather realistically. 3d
RachelO @SleepyDragon @birdsong28 I had to hit YouTube to educate myself 😆🐷 Brilliant! 3d
Birdsong28 @RachelO @sleepydragon Also love ep where you see all Mrs Rabbit's jobs!!! 📚 📖 2d
SleepyDragon @Birdsong28 There's a few of those, but the best is the one with the miniature town. 2d

Technically it‘s maybe more of a comic book than a #NonFictionGraphicNovel but I *think* it‘s in the spirit of the prompt @LibrarianRyan ? It mainly runs as a single narrative rather than random bits and bobs...

A good fun, informative little read covering dinosaurs, fossils, evolution, discoveries, what we still don‘t know and all sorts, mainly told by the dinosaurs themselves!

BookwormAHN Cute 🦖 3d

I went to Murder Mystery night at BN last night. It was fun. Replaced my copy of the tagged book. My puppy ate the last chapter off my galley when I was disposed be using it for LMPBC last round. So now I have a fresh I chewed copy.

Chrissyreadit One thing your #bbrc and #booked2019 has done has really opened my eyes to the lack of diversity in my reading- and in popular books from my lifetime. 4d
LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit I get it. I see it in my own readings. The number of POC books we read as children were few and far between, and most were about how hard it was being a POC like Roll of Thunder... instead of fantastic adventures. I am so excited to read this. I was heart broken when Demon got to my copy. 3d

My kid picked this out at the library, loved it, #recommended that I read it too. So cute! The story of a monster who is “weird” so he lives underground away from people. But then people each out and we have a happy ending with a great positive message. #bbrc #middlegrade also 1pt for #teamslaughter for #scarathlon

LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh 4d
