In the afternoon, we had the KS2 award event - similar to the morning, presentations, quiz and Sam but with younger kids - aged between 9-11. The winner of this award was Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Rodrick Returns. Very funny books and no one was surprised by this one!
THEN>>>> in the evening, we had the adult event. The adults only had 5 books to consider as we decided to focus on just the really big awards - for the children we use every award we know about and this gives us an initial list of about 60-70 for each one - 150 ish books to read between April and August as we get the list down to 10 for each! I didnt read the adult books - time etc - but found out that we needed to do a presentation on one of the books (adults are much more shy than kids when it comes to this sort of thing!) - so about 10 days to read the book and get the presentation done! I only get to read just before bed and kept falling asleep! Finished the book at 12.05 AM on the morning of the event! I decided the day before that I wouldnt talk at the event (I host the other two during the day and am quite bubbly and energetic so knew I would be flagging by then) so I just did a powerpoint presentation and that worked really well.
The winner of the adult award was Wolf Hall - brilliant book that I didnt get through but am going to go on and finish now that I have seen the presentation!
Ho Hum - sorry for the diversion!
