It has been a relatively cool start into the summer season this year in Chicago. So I was really happy to enjoy the warm and sunny weather this past July 4th weekend. What could be more relaxing than a classic book and a glass of lemonade while sitting outside enjoying nature?
This month we selected a few classic adventure books. Our theme book for this month is Captains Courageous, written by Rudyard Kipling. The book tells a story of a spoiled boy who was put to work after an unfortunate mishap at sea. With no other choice, Harvey accepts, and there begins a series of trials and adventures where he learns to adjust to his new life, and takes the first steps towards becoming a man.
We also selected a few other titles for the theme, including Swiss Family Robinson, written by Johann David Wyss, which will be the focal title in our book club discussion in July.
I hope that you will enjoy reading Captains Courageous and other books that are available for downloading into DL Reader from Datalogics Book Club. Perhaps you will find adventures at your work this summer!
