"You know where Batman The Long Halloween is?"
"Yeah, there's one right here on the table. I saw it earlier. You like comics?"
"Mind if I ask why?"
"I read lots of textbooks 'cause I'm in Engineering. E.C.E. So it's an escape."
We talk a bit more, then his phone rings. He talks for about a minute, hangs up and says...
"He call you often?"
"Usually around this time, dinner time. He wants to know if I'm gonna eat at home. He'll leave food for me."
"Aw. That's sweet. Are you guys close?"
"When we were younger, we had problems. But we're OK now."
The Fully Booked Junior Book Crew (JBC) is a summer program with reading and writing workshops for children ages 11-16. The participants also try their hand at in-store tasks and helping out with social media updates.
Here are some of the book spine poems they made during the workshop! We were more than impressed by their storytelling prowess using only titles. :) Hope you enjoy them! :)

Any kid would love to be a super hero flying across the sky. Who wouldn’t want to have have awesome powers to save your friends and make enemies cry? I know I would.
There's always a lot going on in the world of books—with stories being adapted to film, new trailers being released, and teasers from titles we're excited for coming out! Here is a roundup of book news and interesting links that bookworms may like from the week that passed:
Over the past couple of weeks, we have been exploring the idea that 'great art deserves a great medium' by walking through the work of letterer Abbey Sy and designer-illustrator Camy Francisco-Cabral, as presented on their Nuuna journals. This week, we catch up with Patrick Cabral (incidentally, Camy's husband) who is a calligrapher, artist, and game developer. So prolific and talented is this creator that he has even succeeded in the world of mobile game development with Pugo Game, which has reached the #1 spot in the iTunes App Store. Patrick's work is literally an open book to us in this blog entry, as he shows us what he's been up to. Check out the slideshow above, and the photo essay below for a deeper look.
A travel talk with Mikka Wee. A conversation on the Art of Adventure with help from some of the most influential wanderers of our time: Christopher McCandless, Cheryl Strayed, Henry David Thoreau, Jack Kerouac, Pico Iyer, etc.
