STAFF COMPETITION BOOK WEEK!
It's Book Week and as part of the celebrations we are holding a staff competition with many fabulous prizes! We would like to know which book character you like the best or identify with the most. Once we know everyone's favourite character, we will put out a list and you will have to match the character with the staff member who chose that character. This may be easier than you think. Research has shown that when you “lose yourself” inside the world of a fictional character while reading a story, you may actually end up changing your own behaviour and thoughts to match that of the character (another example of the amazing power of reading and literature!). If someone's favourite character is Winnie the Pooh, keep an eye on the staff room to see who is eating the honey. Match the Sherlock Holmes choice with the person who has a deerstalker on their desk.
To get you thinking, take five minutes to do one or both of these quizzes here and here. Reflect back on the books you love and fill out the form below. Don't tell anyone your character just yet as you will want to win the prizes on offer when you hear what they are! It can be a character from a children's book or from an adult book. Once we have received all your submissions we will send out an entry form for you to make the right connections. An appropriate competition for this year's Book Week theme Connect to Reading.
