Readers Dozen – October

Get ready for an exciting October! If ghosts and ghouls aren’t thrilling enough, take on our Readers Dozen Challenge, which is to read a book about a natural disaster. Of course, you can always find a book about tornados or tsunamis, earthquakes or eruptions (just throw one of those terms into the TFPL catalog for tons of results), but don’t forget about some of the truly bizarre, like:


The Year Without Summer – William Klingaman

Death in the Air – Kate Winkler Dawson

The Children’s Blizzard – David Laskin


Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919 – Stephen Puleo


If you need more ideas, look at Natural Disaster Books (Goodreads) or Books About a Natural Disaster (Book Riot: Read Harder). And don’t forget you have until Nov 7 to get your entry in (here’s the form)!
