There is so much going on right now --- and coming up in the next few weeks --- that we here at can hardly handle it! For one thing, it's summer, and summer is always a reason to go a little crazy with excitement. It's warm! There's swimming! You can do cannonballs into a pool! (Not while your friends are reading, though --- that probably wouldn't go over so well.) And, with all the cool reads that are out there this season, how can parents say no to an extra few minutes of poolside lounge time? You'll be reading!

Who's out of school yet?! If you're not, don't worry! You'll be on summer break soon enough, and then it's time to hit the pool with a stack of both new books and old favorites. We here at love JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH by Roald Dahl --- it's a classic! The book, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, is the latest Al's Book Club pick. Even if you're not in a book club, you'll want to read this one if you haven't already.
