Congratulations to the 2013 Summer Reading Final Prize Winner of the Kindle Fire... Jaden Morgan!
I got to take some time and sit down with him so I could ask him some questions and talk about his summer. Here is what he had to say:
If you had to pick any word to describe yourself, what would you choose?
Right. Or Bingo.
If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?
I would be a cat.
Tell about a funny time in your life.

For many, Labor Day signifies the final celebration of summer and the start of the back-to-school season. However, its initial significance represents something quite different. In fact, Labor Day was more specifically intended to be a celebration of the economic and social achievements of American workers. It is a day when Americans and those working in the U.S. pay homage to one another and celebrate the freedom, stability and leadership that defines this country.

Fans of prolific Japanese writer Haruki Murakami will be thrilled to hear that his latest novel is set to be translated and released in English sometime next year. The novel, which translates to Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, was released in Japan on April 12 and has already reportedly sold a million copies in true Murakami fashion.
The hysteria over his new releases in Japan has been likened to the Harry Potter craze in the UK. According to the Daily Beast, the novel has caused a frenzy and has quickly become Amazon Japan's fastest-selling book ever. Murakami's latest novel tells the story of 36-year-old Tsukuru Tazaki, a lonely man who is still grappling with rejection by his high school friends many years later.
