It’s summer! While it is the season for dressing down, and showing some skin, our blog is downright naked lately!
Students for Literacy Ottawa is trying to compile a list of recommended summer reading.
Here’s how you can help:
Please submit your recommendations and reviews to Ottawa@frontiercollege.ca and have your very own words published in our blog, http://studentsforliteracyottawa.blogspot.com . If you’d like to post the contribution yourself, please reply to this e-mail and request info on how to set yourself up with a Blogger profile.
Don’t stress about whether your recommendation is a cheap or trashy read. It’s summer! (Did I mention that already?) We all need a beach read or two…
Conversely, don’t fret about recommending a “geek read,” either. This is Students for Literacy, folks: you’re among friends, here. ;-)
Your submission doesn’t have to be long, but quirkiness and creativity are always appreciated. Your recommendation might include:
* Suggestions on the best place to read this book
* Suggestions on the best food/drink to accompany this book
* A story about who gave this book to you or why you bought it (or which doctor’s office waiting room you swiped it from, etc., etc.)
* A story about why there’s a grape popsicle stain on page 174
Your literary good deed will be rewarded: Lyndsay will personally mail a snazzy Frontier College Ottawa pen in an envelope coloured with her very own Crayolas to any SFLO volunteer who submits a contribution.
Questions/Comments/Insults can be posted below….
Happy Reading (and Reviewing!)
