Summer Reading 2020!

We are gearing up for another great Summer Reading program this year, and even though it’s not going to look exactly like it has in years past, we’re still going to offer fun, cool ideas, and of course, good books to read!

Check out our Summer Reading page for more information, and join us on our social media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – for an awesome season!

Readers Dozen – May

It’s May 1st, so it’s time for our next Readers Dozen challenge and this month we’re challenging you to read a book set at sea. So, whether you choose fiction or nonfiction, adventure or disaster, silly or serious, choose a seaworthy craft, and sail on!

We’re also continuing on with our very first online Book Club – we’re reading Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. It’s not too late to join us, either here on the blog or on our Facebook Group TFPL Book Buffet, and if you do, you can count this book towards the May Readers Dozen! Here’s the online form for May.

If you’re not set on Treasure Island, here are a few suggestions:


Nautical Novels (Goodreads)

Narrative Nonfiction: Set at Sea (Goodreads)

7 Books About Disasters at Sea (Electric Literature)

Mystery Books at Sea (Cozy Mystery List Blog)
