A Graphic Novel

My Friend Dahmer

By Derf Backderf

When Emry pulled A Graphic Novel out of the jar I felt my stomach kind of drop. This wasn't a topic I was excited about in the beginning, and here it was staring in the face. What was I going to do? How was I going to choose which to read? 

So, I did what I thought I needed to do: I went to a comic book store. I walked in and immediately felt like Penny from The Big Bang Theory. Heads turned, the room (it felt, but I'm sure was all in my head) got eerily quiet, and no one moved. An overwhelming discomfort bubbled up and I immediately felt out of my element. I turned around and walked out.

Chapter Books for the Holiday Season

Christmas is right around the corner, and just as I said in last week's Books post, I always enjoy reading a Christmas book or two during this time of year. The following are some of the new ones that have come out this holiday season as well as my personal favorite Christmas chapter book that I have been reading for years. I hope that at least one of them brings you some holiday cheer this season!
