    - 0 Comment(s)

    Have you caught yourself saying "Where has the summer gone?" We have! It's hard to believe we've already come to the final week of our Summer. Read. contest. We’ve had great participation in the Summer. Read. program, and we hope that you’ve enjoyed exploring new reads, DVDs and CDs at the Calgary Public Library.  You still have one more week to participate, so let us know what you’re reading, and enter to win great prizes including our Grand Prize, a Google Nexus 7 tablet.

    As a final bonus prize, everyone who enters this week will also be entered to win a copy of The Power Trip by Jackie Collins. From the book’s summary:

    A luxurious yacht in the Sea of Cortez, a birthday cruise for one of the world's most beautiful women and an invitation no one can refuse. The Power Trip- take it if you dare. From Hollywood icon and mega-seller Jackie Collins comes a thrilling new novel, The Power Trip , set on a state of the art luxury yacht off the coast of Cabo San Lucas.
