Welcome to New Colleagues and Students!

Let me welcome you to a new school year at Salem College and to introduce our fund-raising scheme for the College Library! How does it work? Every time you click on to an Amazon icon through the Bookworm Club blog (either, or and make a purchase, you earn the Bookworm Club affiliate program a 5% commission on books (higher for other products such as electronics, laptops, etc.). We then pass on this commission to the Salem College Library as a donation to buy new books for the Library! It's that easy: just remember to click through the links on this blog to make your purchases.

But there is more!

If you have read an interesting book lately, please write a review and I will publish it on the blog! Students and staff are equally welcome to contribute to the blog. Just email me! I would really like to start off the book reviews this year with one of YOUR reviews.
Happy reading and happy fund-raising!

Some book tips

The Literacy Site

Pass it on!

Access to books is essential to reading development. However, 61 percent
of low-income families have no books for the children in their homes. Over
80 percent of childcare centers serving low-income children lack
age-appropriate books. Now you can help each day with a free click!

Visit The Literacy Site daily and click
the red "Fund Books for Kids" button. This quick, simple action helps give
a book to a child in need--often it is the first book that is their own.

There is no cost to you! Funding for the books is paid by site sponsors
and goes to First Book, an award-winning nonprofit that uses all funding
generated by The Literacy Site to provide free books to children from
low-income families--books that they can take home and keep.

The Literacy Site is new, and its success depends on the number of people
who visit the site and click every day!

Please click at The Literacy Site once a day and forward this email to
friends and family. Together, we can give more books to children in need
and help spark a life-long love of reading.

Thank you!

The Artist's Way

Dear Bookworms,

I have had an idea for some time now to write a few short reviews of books which fall broadly into the lifestyle category, which I hope may generate some ideas and discussion, especially among those of you who are of a creative or artistic turn of mind. One book which in this category which I greatly enjoyed is The Artist's Way. The author, Julia Cameron, may not be a familiar name to you. She is a screenplay writer, who wrote, for example, the screenplays for the Miami Vice TV series. This is much more than just a book: it is a three-month guide through a process of discovering oneself as an artist, whether you like the visual arts or writing. It can even be seen as a kind of therapy for writers with writers' block! It is a wonderful discussion of the relationship between life and productivity, in my view one of the most important issues of our stressed and hurried times. Unfortunately this book is not available from Amazon in Germany, but it can be ordered from the UK. There is now a special kit version of the book:

Or choose from the following:

Congratulations and thanks to all Bookworms!

Dear Bookworms,
We are proud to announce our first fund-raising success with the Bookworm Club, thanks to your support by ordering from Amazon through the blog!
Using funds which you have helped to raise, we have just ordered the following books for the library. The titles were recommended by Ms Baker and her student helpers as books which you might enjoy. So here goes:

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden (2 copies)
Around the World in Eighty Days, Journey to the Center of the Earth, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, all by Jules Verne, in English and German,
The Ultimate Guide to the Mysteries of Harry Potter, and The Plot Thickens, Harry Potter Investigated by Fans for Fans (both by Galadriel Waters)
and, by popular request, several volumes by Peter Ustinov: Gott und die Staatlichen Eisenbahnen, Über das Leben und andere Kleinigkeiten, Ich und Ich, Peter Ustinovs geflügelte Worte.

Once again many thanks for your support! As promised, funds which you have helped to raise will also be used to help carers of the disabled to have a well-earned break, possibly here on Lake Constance: we are in negotiation with the CEO of the Wilf Ward Family Trust to find the best arrangements. Watch this space!
Best regards and happy reading
