Throughout the school year, new books greeted students several times. Of course August brought many new books after summertime ordering, but with books fairs in late October and March, along with holiday-time ordering, students had access to hundreds of new titles. In fact, over the course of the 2018 -2019 school year, more than 775 new books were added to the collection!

What were some of the more popular genres and books? Certainly graphic novels like these:

Chapter books by favorite authors like these:

And these novels in verse, which grow in popularity every year:

Didn't get a chance to read these? No worries! They'll be waiting for you when school starts--along with more than 100 additional new titles! Your to-be-read list just got longer! :) See you in August!


  1. Interesting about the novels in verse. My students are NOT fond of them. I probably add about as many new books as you do-- and try to weed as many as I get, which is the hard part!

  2. Bookworm Central was founded with the wish to incessantly benefit and positively impact children’s lives both in the now and in their futures by providing easy access to quality books. Radhika Bajaj opted for fundraising book fairs as a platform that not only promised children direct and quick access to great books but ensured additional giving into the schools and the community, another driving priority behind the creation of Bookworm.
