It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends. —Albus Dumbledore
WHAT WE LOVE THIS WEEK
The Harry Potter Series on Audible. It's a great time to be a fan of the boy who lived. After years of waiting, Harry has finally come to Audible by way of an award-winning narrator, Jim Dale. Who doesn't love a man with a British accent? Make listening even more magical by following along with the new illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Socerer's Stone. Family reading time just got taken to a whole new level.
Book Recommendations. My brother-in-law recommended The Girl with Seven Names by Hyeonseo Lee. I read Barbara Demick's Nothing to Envy earlier this year and this looks to be the perfect follow-up read.
2015 National Book Award Winners. Fiction: Fortune Smiles: Stories by Adam Johnson. Nonfiction: Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Poetry: Voyage of the Sable Venus by Tobin Coste Lewis. Young People's Literature: Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman. For more about these and the runners-up, read here.
