This Bonus Episode comes to us from the Ottumwa Public Library in Iowa. Ottumwa's Middle School Book Club has been meeting since December of 2015. Since a number of members will be moving out of middle school after this school year, they have already decided they want to form a Teen book club for next school year.

At a recent meeting, the kids came up with a new way to pick their next book for discussion: they wrote their suggestions slips of paper and picked one out of a bowl. How does your book club pick its books? Tell us!

Thanks to our readers in Ottumwa, Iowa: MacKenzie, Noah, Madison, Dylan, Janelle, Natalie – and to their librarian, Allyson Kirking.
