Are you between the ages of 12 and 19? Do you have a book on you at all times? Have you collided with (or narrowly avoided colliding with) a physical object because you were walking while reading? Are you always on the lookout for your next fantastic read? Then you might be a Bookavore!
Bookavores read because the alternative would be to live only half a life. We read books that entertain, inspire, and transport, books that broaden horizons and provoke thoughtful discussion (and a lot of enthusiastic gushing!). What makes a book good? Would Harry Potter have flunked out of Hogwarts if Hermione hadn’t done most of his homework? Did that character serve a purpose besides their totally predictable turn to the dark side (and subsequent death)? Does “realistic” fiction have anything at all to do with real life? And what’s up with all those ball gowns on the covers, anyway? Answers to these questions and more await you.
We read one young adult book per month (voted on by you!). We meet at the store for one hour on the first Sunday of each month at 2pm. Membership is limited to teens aged 12-19.
The Bookavores are facilitated by Rebecca Wells, children’s floor manager at Porter Square Books.
