Hope Valley College Pageturners
Hope Valley,

Oh - one last thing...
Thank you to the brilliant Bea for such an amazing cake! You are this year's Star Pageturner!

...And that's it!
So we're all over for another year! Three cheers! You've all been brilliant and I've been really impressed with your commitment and hard work with a selection of books that you might not have chosen to read without the encouragement of Carnegie. And now the surprise of the year... The official winner: Salt to the Sea. Our winner (by a long chalk): Salt to the Sea. There's a first. We agree with the judges! We have raised our glasses to Ruta Sepetys and all look forward to her next book. Will it be on next year's shortlist? We'll have to wait and see. See you next year.

Nearly finished! Come for our penultimate meeting this Thursday and we will have one last chat about the books, eat some sarnies and plan our party. Be there!

Book clues
Thank you all for bringing your book clues today - it was interesting (and entertaining) to match up the objects with the titles. You all seem to know your books. I'm proud of you. Top Pageturners!

Boring book
I am not complaining but I think Sputnik was very dull because it seemed to drag on a bit. I did not post a review because I did not finish Sputnik. I know that a lot of people have enjoyed it but I didn't. Give Sputnik a try and see what you think. By Alice

Bring your grab-bag this Thursday for more book-chat and a bit of a swap-round before half term. And if you don't know, you can find out what DONM:BYOL means.

Hello! Is there anybody out there?
The books on the shelf are turning round very slowly and the reviews are staggering in like marathon runners over the finishing line. Are you awake out there? Are you (still) reading? Come for lunch on Thursday and tell me.

Bring 'em back
PLEASE!!!! If you've finished your book, will you bring it back and swap it? I've got a box on my desk with 3 Sputniks, one Sparrow and one Smell and that's all. Please keep them rotating so everybody has a chance to read them all.

How is everyone doing?
Hi everyone. I have read two books so far and just wondering how everyone else is doing. -Alice

Well, that was grand. Some good analytical discussion today, and some smouldering reviews starting to come in - have a look and see if you are the current Star Reviewer. You earned your mini-rolls (sorry James😢). How does anybody feel about Tuesday for our next chinwag? (You're such a busy lot!)

...will be tomorrow (Thursday) so please BE THERE with your consent slips at the ready. If you can't make it please let me know. HM

Hey Dudes!
Yo yo yo guys! How you doing? I'm good and having fun. Currently, I am reading Beck which is an amazing book which every one should vote for! Lots of love see you next meeting May x

Today's the day...
...when we have a look at the website and start getting some classy reviews on there. Get yourself a grab-bag, bring it to the library this lunchtime and get ready to roll.

Team Talk
Ok so you've had lots of time over Easter to lie back with a book and a pile of chocolate. Now we'll get started properly. Lots of people have been in this morning and swapped their books, so I know most of you have been reading, but we only have until June 19th to get through the eight titles, so we all need to get a wriggle on. As soon as you finish your book, start another! Carnegie Shadowing is much more fun if you've had a good go at all the books, so the slower readers amongst us (that's me!) have to make reading a priority for the next few weeks. No more Facebook til June 20th.

Welcome back!
Happy Carnegie 2017! Let's get our teeth into some literature - and some biscuits.
